Digging a basement on the outside can be expensive and upset the landscaping around your house. Sealing the leak at the source is the best method of repair. Instead of digging, why not use a process that pushes the sealant all the way to the outside where the water is entering. Our process will travel to the outside shutting off water where it is important, the source.
Here are example photos after an injection showing the polyurethane traveling through the wall crack to the exterior (reverse) of the injection. This shows the sealant SP-3 travels through the cracks in the walls to the source without expensive excavation methods.
There are many "worst case" conditions when encountering basement wall crack leaks. One of the most common and most difficult to stop is when previous waterproofing methods have been used and have failed. These are considered in the waterproofing industry to be "dirty", meaning that they have other materials applied. We can inject behind those materials creating a superior seal and a "dry" crack. Below are examples of "worst" case conditions.
Some companies will offer a Dewatering Panel application (floor/drain panel) for standard wall crack repair in place of new injection technology. When this occurs, companies will install a plastic panel over the crack and cut the floor to install a new drain line and allow the crack to drain continually without stopping the water.
This type of installation technique is not effective because it does not stop water and allows mold to grow behind the panel.
Mr. Sponge Waterproofing can inject this type of leak, stop the water and warranty the repair for 20 years with a transferrable warranty.
Pictured below is an example of a failed 1970's era Dewatering Panel repaired by other type of waterproofer.
