Frank's Basement Systems Case Studies: Large, Multidirectional Wall Crack

Friday, February 5th, 2021 by Elizabeth Anderson

Challenge

An Orchard Park home had a very large crack in the poured wall. To make matters worse, it went in four different directions and leaked water into the basement. The homeowner decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate on what could be done.

Solution

Donnie Spacone inspected the crack and agreed the options were limited. The FlexiSpan system normally used on wall cracks wouldn't work because the crack went so many different directions. Instead, he recommended BrightWall panels be installed over the crack and WaterGuard interior drainage installed below it. This combination would trap the water coming through the crack and direct it into the drainage. No more water on the floor or ugly cracked wall!
