A crack in the concrete on your basement is inevitable, risky and problematic. Moreover, it is not a situation that has to be ignored. Concrete cracks are the effects of movement with heat expansion, or the drying and shrinking of the slabs, on the walls or floors of the foundation.  Ml Enviro Roofing & Waterproofing INC, specialises in concrete crack repair.

Nature of cracks...
Concrete cracks are basically horizontal or vertical. Horizontal cracks are conventionally structural caused due to the pressure built up on the opposite side of the wall. The pressure may be due to the hydrostatic force or caused by an improper backfill. A cycle of freeze and thaw in extreme climates may also cause horizontal cracking of the concrete. Vertical cracks, however, are non-structural and are often accompanied by a number of other fissures, along the surface. An expansion and contraction of the concrete over the years, with the changing climates, are usually the reason for these types of cracks.

Methods of sealing..
A house, a parking garage, or a shopping complex – none of these structures can be shielded from nature. Concrete slabs are the basic structural elements in modern buildings, and cracks in these slabs are imminent. However, ignoring a crack leads to breakage and decay in the concrete joints.
Ml Enviro Roofing & Waterproofing INC employs top notch contractors, with their years of experience, expertise, and a thorough study of your surroundings would come up with the most appropriate sealing methods, that are both economical and swift.

Source of the cracks...
A pertinent repair strategy can be devised only after proper inspection of the site. Before we repair the concrete joints, we determine the cause of the crack.

Xypex...

Basic to the development of Xypex Crystalline Technology was a thorough understanding of concrete's chemical and physical makeup. Concrete is porous. Its tunnel-like capillaries are a natural part of its mass, and permit the passage of water and other liquids. Researchers at Xypex recognized the opportunity for a chemical treatment that would fill these capillaries to prevent the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction. By means of diffusion, the reactive chemicals in Xypex products use water as a migrating medium to enter and travel down the capillaries of the concrete. This process precipitates a chemical reaction between Xypex, moisture and the by-products of cement hydration, forming a new non-soluble crystalline structure. This integral structure fills the capillary tracts rendering the concrete waterproof. Thus came about Xypex concrete waterproofing products.
