Out to 5 Tie Rod Hole Leaks Repair
A tie rod hole leak is a leak that comes through a tie rod hole. The hole is about the size of a quarter and the water that leaks through leaves a stain on your wall. These holes can be one foot to five feet above the ground. It’s not easy to avoid these types of leaks because tie rod holes are often the result of the construction of your home.
- Access the void by drilling
- Sealing surface void
- Grout injection to permanently seal the water leak
With older construction, concrete structures were held together by steel rods every 1 to 1 and 1/2 feet. The steel rods were placed in rows within the concrete form. Once removed, they left tiny holes called rod holes. These are incredibly common in older homes and often lead to leaks in basements.
Repair Leaks With Polyurethane Injection
Advanced Waterproofing utilizes the polyurethane injection method to repair tie rod hole leaks for Ontario clients. Many competitors choose to offer plugs that can be placed in the rod hole and the solution is billed as a do-it-yourself project. Unfortunately, this method is a short-term investment and doesn’t ensure that the leak will be stopped. There are cracks that form within the tie rod holes and cause more water to leak through your walls.
There are many reasons the polyurethane injection is a better solution than the plug option. Our polyurethane material is able to fix both the holes and the cracks that have formed adjacent to the holes. The plug only takes care of the whole, but the polyurethane will seal any cracks within the holes that are causing leaks. We also back our service with our industry-leading lifetime transferrable warranty.
