Keep the basement dry. The FlexiSpan system seals the wall crack as a first line of defense. But if any water should leak through the crack, a hidden, foam-lined channel transports this leakage to the waterproofing system.
The first response to a cracked basement wall is often an application of patching mortar or masonry sealant. Unfortunately, this quick fix rarely works because of poor adhesion to the masonry or a slight movement along the crack that breaks the seal.
Instead of making several attempts to repair a foundation wall crack, why not make a single permanent repair that’s guaranteed never to fail? The FlexiSpan crack repair system will do the job right so you won’t have to do it again.
FlexiSpan crack repair is actually a three-part process that begins with the application of a flexible sealant along the full length of the crack. Next, a strip of flexible and porous foam is installed over the crack.
Finally, an impermeable membrane is adhered to the wall on both sides of the foam strip. This failsafe treatment allows any future seepage of water through the crack to move invisibly down the wall and into the basement’s perimeter drainage system.
Unlike sealant or mortar-based crack repair, the FlexiSpan system is not adversely affected by hydrostatic pressure or slight movement in the basement wall. It works under all conditions.

No more leaks. FlexiSpan crack repair puts an end to water leakage through basement wall cracks.
In rare instances, a foundation wall crack can signal a serious structural issue like settlement, erosion or buckling inward due to soil and water pressure.
Foundation leakage may also be an issue, but the primary concern will be to correct major structural problems that threaten the stability of the building.
