Leaking Bulkheads Can Be Fixed

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 30, 2012

April showers bring May flowers. Unless that water is coming in your basement. Then all you get is a headache. Wet basements don’t only cause headaches; they cause mold, and an unhealthy living environment.

There are many ways that water can enter your basement, but one of those ways is a leaking bulkhead. Usually, bulkhead leaks are caused from movement between the bulkhead and the foundation. Bulkheads are separate from the foundation; they are just bolted to the foundation wall. When the bulkhead is bolted to the wall, a black rubber seal is put between the foundation wall and the bulkhead.  This is what stops the water. When there is movement between the bulkhead and the foundation, water can leak into the basement.
 
A-1 Foundation Crack Repair injects a closed cell polymer resin between the bulkhead and the foundation (cold joints).  Usually two visits are needed because bulkheads are susceptible to movement.  No matter what style bulkhead you have, A1 Foundation Crack Repair has the expertise to solve the problem, contact us.
