Basement Repair in Selkirk and Winnipeg
No matter what the problem with your basement, we have the solution. Whether it be a structural repair or a foundation crack repair, we have the technology to take care of the problem.
Cracked, heaved and dropped concrete floors and walls can be repaired and/or replaced.
Cracks in the foundation walls are caused by the swelling and shrinking of the surrounding clay around the foundation and under the footing. Although cracks appear on parts of the wall that is unable to handle the stress of the movement but does not necessarily show where the movement has occurred. These cracks can shrink and expand as the soil conditions change. There can also be many small hairline cracks radiating out from the original large crack. This is why we do not recommend repairing the cracks by filling them from the inside. This can trap water in the wall which when freezing can open up other cracks and cause further damage. Most of the time it is recommended that the repair is done from the outside, guarantying that all cracks and voids are waterproofed. Our experts will determine the best method to repair your original problem.

Our estimator will assess the repair and discuss options with you. Brown and Sons backfills the hole with clean drainrock not clean limestone like some of our competitors. We believe that using crushed stone that has sharp edges is not a good idea as there is a chance that it could puncture the waterproofing membrane.
