Welcome to our Concrete Wicking Repair Ottawa page. Normal concrete is usually air entrained, meaning there are very small bubbles within the concrete. Also concrete is made with water. When the water evaporates it leaves very small voids. The wetter the concrete is poured the more voids or bubbles. These microscopic voids and bubbles allow for the transfer of water, wicking.
Your concrete foundation may also have cracks that allow water and moister into your home’s basement. Concrete foundation repair can be carried out by yourself assuming the cracks are cosmetic. More serious cracks need to be repaired by professionals.
If your concrete foundation has cracks in it why not give the foundation experts a call here at Ottawa Home Improvements today. We will come out and assess your foundations conditions and make recommendations.
