BASEMENT WATERPROOFING & CRACK REPAIR

We take pride in developing an engineered approach to solving either structural or water proofing problems. We consult with a board certified sealed structural engineered to properly evaluate complex structural or water proofing issues.

BASEMENT – FOUNDATION CRACK REPAIR
If you discover a water leak in your basement or foundation coming from a crack, the first question you should ask yourself is: Is this crack a serious structural problem or is it simply a crack that only needs to be addressed as a basement waterproofing issue?
American Contracting has over 20 years of experience in assessing this kind of question and determining the appropriate repair option for any circumstances. We offer state of the art epoxy or urethane injection techniques that provide permanent waterproof seals to basement cracks.
