Both small and large cracks have similar adverse consequences for your health, your house, and your safety. It’s important to repair any basement crack as soon as you notice one.
Your home’s foundation keeps your house fixed in place, keeps it stable and firm. A foundation crack is a threat to every aspect of it:
One by one, the problems will occur. From more cracks to cosmetic issues both inside and outside. It's just a question of time.
Every crack is an invitation and an open door to your basement. Sooner or later, the water from the soil will start leaking through the walls or the floor, with all the consequences:
There’s nothing good about having a wet basement. The more you wait — the worse it gets and the more expensive options you may need to make it dry and comfortable again.
A basement crack by itself is not a health hazard, but it’s a sign of a whole spectrum of dangers on their way. If you skip on basement crack repair, it may lead to:
Some of these effects may occur, some may not. We frankly wish you never having to face them. The only way to be sure is to repair all your basement cracks — even the tiniest ones.

An epoxy crack injection will stop the growth of existing cracks in your basement, and our experts will help you understand why the cracks appear in the first place.
Outdated technologies or something as simple as negligence can cause cracks years and years after the construction ends:
It may look and sound simple, but in reality — an epoxy crack injection has a whole list of aspects that can undermine the process.
Willfix professionals know how to do it the right way — in 4 simple steps:
We make sure that the crack is 100% dry and has no oil or dust traces before we start the process and seal it. Otherwise it could leak later.
After installing the ports, we inject a commercial grade quick-drying epoxy in the crack, until every tiny cavity is properly filled.
When the crack is filled and secured, we test it and make sure that the area is protected. If it’s safe — we restore the original look of your basement wall.
The crack is sealed and no water will be able to enter your basement through the repaired area. Your basement is secured — with a 25 years warranty.

You can’t inject the epoxy directly into the crack with an injector gun. Most of the time it just wouldn’t fill it. To be 100% sure that no hollow spots are unfilled — we use sealed injection ports.
Injection ports are applied to the crack and sealed over. This way, all the epoxy that goes in the crack just has no other way to go but filling all the area inside.
Each injection port can ensure proper filling just in a limited area, so we’ll need a lot of ports — especially if the crack is relatively wide and long.
When one port is completely filled — we move to the other. By the moment the last port is used, there are no hollow spots under the sealed area: the pressure filled them all, and the epoxy has hardened. The crack is officially sealed.
It may sound simple, but in reality — there are many aspects to consider. For example, the crack has to be thoroughly cleaned before the process. No oil, no dust, no loose concrete debris — all of it can undermine the process.
Yes and no. Epoxy should be used in areas where there are no other choices for a long-term solution.
A deep, structural concrete crack can be filled with epoxy, but if the surface of the concrete cannot be smoothed over or cleaned properly from the inside, then epoxy will not provide a sufficient long-term solution.
Epoxy crack injections do not bond well to wet surfaces such as porous objects or materials containing lots of water. You can’t seal a leak with an epoxy crack injection. You need a full-scale basement crack repair. Luckily, that’s another service that Willfix experts can do professionally.
Yes and no, once again. Epoxy can be applied over concrete. The question is not whether you CAN, but whether you should.
Will it look good? No, it probably won’t.
Will it last? No, it won’t.
Besides, the concrete needs to be extremely dry before application. If moisture does get on the concrete, the epoxy will not catch properly and will look like a patch of plastic that is cracking.
A repair covering made of adhesive, such as epoxy, is appropriate to place over or fill loose voids in concrete. Epoxy can be used to fill voids, including the ones caused by asbestos removal, if the insulation has been removed from the walls.
The bottom line is — yes, you can use epoxy OVER concrete, but it works way better if you use it as an injection filling for cracks, with ports, and properly seal and decorate the area afterwards.
Epoxy injection lasts for at least 5 years if it is applied to a non-porous surface like stone or concrete. The surface of the material must not become saturated with water or any other liquid during the period of application.
If epoxy is used on a porous material, then the surface should be kept extremely dry during the application and curing period. If the area is not kept dry, the epoxy may become saturated with water and thus dissolve leaving behind a water-logged mess.
With regular maintenance, most epoxies can be expected to last for decades without visible signs of decay or deterioration. Epoxies with high catalyst content will have a much longer lifespan. However, this lifespan is heavily dependent on the conditions.
Epoxy injection is perfect for small and medium-sized cracks ranging from 1/32 to ½ inch (0.8 to 13 mm). However, for this method, the crack must be clean and have no voids or other debris within the crack itself.
Epoxy crack injections work perfectly good when you need a quick solution to a small, just potentially dangerous problem, and to stop a relatively harmless crack from expanding. However, sometimes — it just might be not enough.
