Methods for processing and sealing cracks

Seeling cracks in the wall (on the wall, in the walls) should occur only after the cause of their occurrence is determined. Very often, the cracks in the walls arise due to the drawdown of the foundation, during the construction of which errors were allowed. The foundation can begin to collapse under the influence of groundwater, strong temperature differences, soil movement, etc. Without clarifying the reason for the appearance of cracks, it is not necessary to start them with cosmetic repairs, because it will entail negative consequences and can lead to the emergency condition of the whole building.

After eliminating the cause of cracking, cracks in the brick wall are often used. This is done to prevent premature wear of the walls. Cracks are expanded with chisel and hammer: their edges are knocked down at an angle of 45 degrees. This is done for small and large cracks to prevent the appearance of emptiness in the wall. After the bay, the cracks are cleaned of dirt and dust, and also filled with a solution. If the cracks are very large, then the pieces of bricks or small gravel are used. It is worth remembering that in front of all cosmetic procedures, it is worthwhile to enhance the structures in the fracture site. This will prevent the increase in cracks and their distribution.

The reason for the appearance of cracks in brick walls (brick, gas-silicate, concrete, stone (butte) carriers) is determined primarily and all further work depend on it.

Causes of cracking in the walls:


  • Неравномерная осадка фундамента. Если структура грунта приводит к неравномерному проседанию здания, то, во избежание появления трещин, необходимо армировать станы по всему периметру или воспользоваться технологией Граундтек.

  • Неправильные расчеты при строительстве. При возведении фундамента для здания стоит учитывать даже самые малейшие детали. Всего одна ошибка неизбежно приведёт к появлению трещин в стенах в будущем.

  • Негативное воздействие окружающей среды. Грунтовые воды и сильные перепады температур могут сказаться на износостойкости фундамента и стен, особенно, если при их возведении использовались более дешевые материалы.

  • Трещины могут возникать в местах соединения различных материалов. Например, часто возникают трещины между кирпичом и железобетоном. При возведении строения стоит учитывать используемые различное поведение материалов и их крепление между собой.

  • Прогибы (деформации) в несущей конструкции. 

The consequences of the development of cracks in the foundations of buildings (tape, slab, columnar, concrete, brick, block and butt) depend on the degree of running of the object.If the cause of cracks began to search immediately after its occurrence, then there will be no negative consequences for the construction of the house.If there were no attention to the crack for many weeks, and then months, it will inevitably lead to the emergency condition of the whole building.

A method of eliminating the causes of the appearance of cracks from the company Граундтек

In front of any work on the sealing cracks, it is worth strengthening them (strengthen), and also get rid of the causes of their occurrence.Since most often cracks in the walls appear due to the foundation problems, the company Граундтек has developed a unique technology that helps to quickly solve any fundamental problems, which will lead to stabilization of cracks and reduce them.

Technology Граундтек includes only a few stages that are able to solve the problem with cracks in just a few days.

The use of this technology helps to fix the foundation in a constant position more than 50 years, without resorting to earthworks (excavation or excavation).In addition, geopolymer is fully safe for both human and environmental.After the design is fixed, you can start a decorative trim or sealing cracks, which no longer carries risks.Our company recommends strengthening the design by special reinforcement, maintaining natural flexibility.

An important advantage of technology Граундтек is the time of work.The average project is performed within 2-3 days, and all works are produced without the need to suspend the operation of the building.

In order to order an audit of an object or learn more about technology - Call us by phone shown on the site, or order a callback.We will contact you in the near future and help solve the problem with cracks in the walls.

Is it possible to use a chemical anchor as a placeholder and material that fastens the folded parts when seeling cracks?

To understand what a decision or technology to choose should be understood with which design we are dealing and what impact we are trying to compensate.In some cases, it is advisable to use a chemical anchor as well.

Yes, this is one of the factors of uneven foundation drawdown and as a result of damage to the supporting structures.It is important to understand these cracks only on a decorative layer or this is a manifestation of cracks in supporting structures.To understand the situation, it is necessary to carry out a professional examination of the structures, examine the basis and carry out the model cover the distribution of loads with the analysis of visible destruction and results of the miscalculation.

After the situation is stabilized and the dynamics of damage is stopped, there are a number of possible options with different consequences.We recommend that you increase the cracks of flexible reinforcement and make a finishing decorative finish to forget about ex-concerns.

First of all, it is necessary to examine the building and determine at what level there are reasons for cracks: "Over the earth or underground."To do this, examine the founding of the building and the examination of the structures.This is the minimum necessary first step before choosing a solution for restoration work.

The first stage should be called specialists for conducting a survey and identify the causes of cracks.Not all cracks are the same and not everyone has the same cause of their causing.Only after that you can argue on the topic of decisions and further actions.

First you need to figure out where the power is pressured and what nature are they.To do this, it is necessary to test the base and inspect the designs.Additionally, it is recommended to make a geodesic shooting to obtain specific data on design deformations.After processing this data, you can develop a solution for a prediagnostic problem.

This is definitely possible because the deformations have a battery feature and the closer to the epicenter, the less damage.Therefore, it is clear that you should examine the basis and designs to understand the current behavior of your building.

In general, if it does not interfere with you calmly live further, you can decoratively close them correctly.But still we recommend strengthening cracks to associate the design and avoid the movement of structures during temperature fluctuations.The sealing technology is chosen depending on the type of construction ... where is the epoxy resin, and somewhere the fittings ...

It is theoretically possible if everything is fine with the reason (and this is definitely known), but ... practical implementation and technology requires regular adjustment of the tension of these plates. After all, the temperature and humidity regime changes regularly and the properties of various behavior of various materials when no one changed the temperature. And even if all the shutters are made and preformed (which is often not done technologically correct), then for sure every season no one will regulate the tension, which leads to additional destruction of the building in contact places.

If everything is in order with the base, then you need to look for the cause in the designs itself.That is, it is necessary to conduct a survey of the designs themselves and their functional abilities.It can be a banal wear or incorrect distribution of stresses in nodes.

The consequences consist in entering moisture inside the nodes and the destruction of structures during the temperature of the temperature and humidity period.The heat loss and loss of the market value of your asset comes automatically.Insects also love to arrange their homes in comfortable adjacent conditions.

Unfortunately no, or rather, it is essentially the fight against symptoms, and not with the disease.In any case, it is necessary to determine the type of cause and its location.Eliminating the cause of damage, you can make a decision that meets your desires and restrictions.
