Honeycomb areas within poured concrete walls are pockets of excessive aggregate that result from improper cement mixture. When pouring cement into wall forms, sometimes the cement will have more aggregate when it gets near the end of the cement load. If this is not vibrated properly it can form a pocket where the cement to aggregate ratio is improper. Although the cement will dry and form part of the wall, it has a honeycomb effect due to insufficient concrete. These pocket areas can allow water to seep into the voids and leak into the basement. At Mr. Sponge Waterproofing, Inc. we can inject SP-3 through the area and cause the leak to stop with total encapsulation.
Mr. Sponge Waterproofing, Inc. specializes in stopping water from entering through poured cement foundation walls. Our specialty is repairing wall cracks, tie rods, honeycombs, and I-Beam leaks. We instantly stop water entry in these most common basement leak sources by injecting our proprietary SP-3 Water Activated polyurethane, under high pressure, into the path of water entering your basement.
