    Default Question for the guys on the west coast

    Gents,

    Do you guys know of a product that will seal a crack in a foundation from the inside? I know of hydrolic cement. Point is my foundation is cracking from teh corner of my window. I know the right thing to do is dig down to the footing and re-tar/ice-water shield. I was wondering if there was a product that gets used out there, for cracks from earthquakes.

    I really don't want to get involved w/the cement. You have to mix it just right.

    Thanks.

    I know, I'm not from the west coast, but I'll butt in anyway.

    There are any number of structural epoxies out there for that exact purpose. Some are made for do-it-yourselfers, others for contractors with special equipment. I had work done on my foundation last year, had it jacked back up, then the cracks repaired. The contractor I used was Kaye Foundations in Nashua, N.H. (They cover all of northern New England.) They used a couple of different epoxies, depending on the crack. One had to be mixed, one didn't. Both were applied with a caulking gun. They were available from Fastenal. www.fastenal.com
