 My daughter has been looking at buying her first home in Brantford. So I went with her to see one she liked . THis was a one floor semi-detached .
In the basement was a crack from top to bottom in the poured concrete wall . It had been repaired using the injected process ( it had injection nipples drilled on a angle into the crack all the way up the wall ) The sealant had been injected till it had oozed back out . We have been told it was done 5 years ago and had a 25yr warranty . Still this has me worried , I do not want her to get stuck with a problem and told her to walk away from this one. Trying to find out who did the repair . Are these repair good for the life of the basement ? Or can they start leaking again ? What are the cost of fixing this type of problem . We can not see the rest of the walls , if there is one leak is there a good chance there is another one ? Or is it just usually one spot that gets all the damage .
Would you consider that a wall that has been repaired as good as new , or a wall that has no cracks .
What can cause these leaks ? Is it settling , and after a house has been sitting for 20years with no damage, can cracks still appear . It seems all the houses she is looking at have poured concrete foundations.
Thank you for any info
