Calgary Foundation Crack Repair

Foundation crack repair for Calgary & area

Abalon Foundation Repair has been repairing foundation cracks in Calgary area since 1987: you can rest assured that you will be getting a quality, secure solution to your foundation issues, backed by our 100% guarantee. 

Foundation cracks are an issue that needs to be addressed by a professional foundation crack repair specialist, nothing less.

After these cracks form, the prospect of water seepage is not a matter of if it will happen but a matter of when it will happen. Foundation cracks not repaired professionally, and in a timely manner, will lead to leaks that can damage the interior of your home. Abalon Foundation Repair repairs these foundation cracks from the exterior only. Repairing from the exterior is the correct way to address these issues. Repairing from the inside leaves a space on the exterior side of the foundation wall allowing water to continue collecting. As the water freezes, it opens the cracks again. Abalon Foundation Repair carefully hand excavates to the foundation footing, cracks are cleaned out, and then polyurethane, non-shrinking hydraulic grout and waterproofing are applied to ensure long lasting repairs.

We are commonly asked about seepage and movement issues. We can confidently say that both go hand in hand. Seepage issues will cause movement, and movement can result in seepage.

Foundation seepage

Seepage or basement leaks, occur when water infiltrates into your basement through pores, cracks, or voids in your foundation walls and floors. The major contributor to seepage is not having proper drainage and/or waterproofing. This needs to be remedied immediately to save your basement from deterioration, as well as to prevent or minimize mould, fungus, and mildew. Contact Abalon Foundation Repairs now if you are experiencing any of these issues.

  • water entering the basement through the walls or floor
  • general dampness or a musk odour in the basement
  • tiles lifting from the floor
  • white powder (efflorescence) on the walls or floors
  • warped paneling or dry rot
  • mildew or fungus

Our foundation crack repair services will correct all of the problems that your foundation may be encountering. Weeping tile (drainage system) is an integral part of a properly waterproofed foundation. Did you know that a large portion of homes built in Canada don’t have proper drainage systems?

Weeping tile is a perforated plastic pipe which is placed on the side of the footing around the entire exterior perimeter of the house at the bottom of the foundation wall. In older homes, this pipe might be made of clay or concrete material. The purpose of weeping tile is to collect excess water draining down the exterior foundation wall. This prevents water pressure building up against the foundation wall and diverts the water before it is absorbed by soil causing the soil to swell. After the water enters the weeping tile it drains to a sump pit.

Weeping tile is affected by foundation shifting, basement floor heaving, sewer backup, as well as shrinking and swelling clay. Your Abalon representative will be able to advise you on any repair or maintenance required.

Foundation movement

Movement or settlement can occur when soil conditions change due to swelling, shrinking and settling fill. This is considered a structural problem and should only be handled by a qualified experienced foundation repair contractor.

Signs of foundation movement:

  • cracks in walls and ceilings
  • windows or doors sticking
  • windows and doors that are out of square
  • cracked of uneven floors
  • cracks in brick or stucco
  • foundation wall bowing or buckling
  • fireplace/chimney leaning away from the house
  • cracks in the walls or floors

Settlement usually requires the use of underpinning systems to remedy the situation. Abalon has a variety of underpinning services that can be used to professionally repair your home. 

Preventative action to avoid foundation cracks

Swelling and shrinking soil can be a major problem. Homeowners can take some steps to minimize changes in moisture content:

  • make sure eavestroughs and downspouts are in good working order
  • extend downspouts away from the house at lease three feet and preferably to splash pads
  • slope soil away from house
  • water soil around house at least twice a week in dry years
  • water trees especially in dry years
  • take care when moving trees; as it affects drainage
  • do not flood flowerbeds
  • make sure window well drainage system is working properly
  • if you have an underground sprinkler system or in-ground pool, underground valves and joints can leak: check frequently
