Foundation Facts From All-Dry of Chicago

Most homeowners can attest that basement cracks are a fact of life. In fact, approximately 75 percent of all concrete foundations will crack within the first year of being poured. These cracks are difficult to see, but will worsen over time. Cracks occur due to drying, shrinkage, thermal shifts and other causes. Initially, they are usually minor, and present few problems. But over time, minor cracks can grow larger and cause major damage - potentially leading to loss of structural integrity and water intrusion.

Foundation leakage is one of the most common problems for home and business owners. Water invasion can damage the structural integrity of walls, raise basement humidity, and cause mold and mildew - all of which can prevent you from making the most of your basement.

Concrete is porous and has air pockets that can soak up moisture like a sponge. All-Dry uses Emecole Pene-Seal-Crete concentrated clear water-based sealer to repair these pockets. The Emecole Pene-Seal-Crete sealer is sprayed on new or existing foundations and slabs to fill these porous areas. This minimizes penetration of moister and radon, and allows you to control basement humidity.
