How to fix a cracked foundation

This is a cost-effective alternative to digging out the exterior of your house to fix a crack in the foundation. In this case, we mitigated the risk of leaks by injecting a concrete epoxy under pressure to penetrate any voids in the foundation. After sealing the affected area, we framed, insulated, installed vapour barrier, and drywalled the wall system.
