Q: I’ve heard it’s easy to repair simple basement cracks yourself. How do I know when it’s time to call a professional?
A: Some people attempt to repair cracks with hydraulic cement, but that is referred to as negative-side waterproofing and will ultimately fail. Cracks should always be repaired by a professional through a process called urethane injection. This is a process in which a unique urethane resin is injected into the crack with a special machine. The resin then expands through the wall to the outside.
