WE CAN FIX ANY WALL CRACK – WET OR DRY FROM THE INTERIOR.

  • Repaired and water free in less than 2 hours.
  • Transferable warranty.
  • We utilize our specialize sealing process and SP-3 polyurethane.

SP-3 IS WATER ACTIVATED URETHANE THAT:

  • Fills the cracks from the interior to exterior.
  • Reacts immediately to moisture, creating a lasting bond in 40 seconds or less.
  • Produces a pliable membrane.

Why does Mr. Sponge have proprietary polyurethane?  Because with the amount of leaks we service and warranty, we want to ensure that we have polyurethane that performs to our high specifications and will not fail. With our own polyurethane and our owner operated service, we provide the highest control and application possible in leak prevention services.

In cases where wall cracks have been previously repaired by other contractors and have failed, we can use our injection process to stop the water entry immediately. Our polyurethane will adapt and flow around the materials and through the crack sealing it all the way to the exterior.

EXAMPLES OF OLD WATERPROOFING METHODS WE CAN REPAIR:

  • Epoxy Injections
  • Caulk type sealants
  • Hydraulic cements
  • Fiberglass
  • De-watering panels
  • Channel drains
  • French drains
  • Exterior membranes

WHY DIG WHEN OUR PROCESS SEALS FROM THE INSIDE ALL THE WAY TO THE OUTSIDE?

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.

WE CAN REPAIR THE WORST CASE BASEMENT WALL CRACK CONDITIONS

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 through those materials and achieve the same seal and a “dry” crack. Below are examples of “worst” case conditions.

This example is a residential wall crack that has been repaired with several applications by water-proofer’s that had failed. The method was the 1970’s era channel drain repair. Mr. Sponge can inject this type of leak, stop the water and warranty the repair for 20 years with a one-time transferrable warranty.

In some cases, companies will offer this (floor/drain panel) application 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 INSTALLATION TECHNIQUE IS INEFFECTIVE BECAUSE:

  • It does not stop water.
  • It allows mold to grow behind the panel.
  • In the photo above, the plastic panel has been removed prior to injecting this leak correctly.
  • This shows how the mold will grow behind the panel as water continues to seep in the basement.
