Our Crack Has Been Filled!

Ok, sorry about the awful pun, but it has become a running joke here that our crack needed filling. Anyway, the crack IN OUR BASEMENT has been fixed. Here's what it looked like before...

The guy came and drilled about a million holes up the wal and inserted these tubes. Then he took some foam stuff and shot it into each tube until it could hold no more. The foam went through the tube and up the crack filling in every crevice and crack. The guy said that it was biggest basement/foundation crack he'd ever seen. He also said that he had to use more foam stuff than any other job he's ever done. So hopefully our problem has been fixed. It is guaranteed for five years which is nice to know. Here's what it looks like now...

Here's a better picture of the globs of hardened foam goo.

Once we frame in the walls and put up drywall all that unsightly mess will go away, but for now it will be my constant companion as I do laundry. It is a basement afterall.


  1. That's great! I love progress!!!

  2. I bet you're glad to have that taken care of and done with! No more wet basement for you guys!!!
