Can you fix a leaky basement from the inside?
Most basement leak repairs, regardless if they are performed on brick, cement block, or concrete foundations, can be performed from the inside or the outside of the home. If you have a poured concrete foundation, both interior and exterior waterproofing repairs can be effective in preventing a wet basement.
How much does it cost to fix a cracked basement wall?
The national average cost to repair cracks in a foundation is $350 to $1,350. If you catch a crack early, you can expect to pay between $300 and $600 for a hairline crack. Major structural issues can cost as much as $10,000 to $15,000 to fix — which is why it’s important to catch and repair damage early.
How do you seal cracks in a basement?
