Cold Joint

Issue: When a foundation is poured, and there is a lapse in time between completion, weakness occurs. This is known as a cold joint. Cold joints are also formed when an existing foundation is met with a new foundation such as an addition to the property. 

Resolution: New England Foundation Crack Repair treats leaking cold joints with a high pressure injection at the point of weakness and/or between the new and existing basement foundation walls. A horizontal cold joint can be reinforced with structual carbon fiber.
