Foundation Crack Repair in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens
Professionals usually fabricate basement foundation walls from concrete. Most experts agree that concrete cracking is unavoidable and happens for many reasons, especially in our Long Island climate. Normally, people do not consider a foundation wall crack to be a defect. In fact, in most cases, it’s no more than a blemish. Actually, the most common problem associated with foundation wall cracks is water penetration. These cracks create openings into the basement that water can pass through. That’s why foundation crack repair is so essential for keeping water out of your basement.
In addition to exterior foundation waterproofing and sub-floor drainage systems (French drains), Boccia Inc. offers foundation crack repair services that will prevent water from passing through a wall crack. We design these systems to close the void that the crack has created, so that it’s impervious to water penetration.
