One way to know if you need basement waterproofing in Detroit Michigan is if you have any signs of water in your basement close to the foundation walls. That’s going to tell you that you have water leaking in from somewhere.
Concrete does not leak But cracks in concrete do in Metro Detroit. And if there is one thing you can bet on, it is that concrete will crack and more often than not the water seeping through the crack will be a bigger problem than the crack itself.
If your foundation has cracks wider than 1/4-inch wide, or if you have stairstep cracks in blocks or bricks, you can hire a contractor for foundation crack repair in Metro Detroit to plug them by injecting epoxy ($1,500-$3,000) or do it yourself with epoxy putty, but either way, you’ll only be stopping water from coming in.
