Crack injection is a thing of the past. You'll keep doing it over and over. With Flexispan you control where the water goes, getting it out and leaving a nice looking wall in the end.

In this before photo, the homeowner had a pump placed in a bucket.  Their pump would only come on (sometimes) when the water level hit the level of the floor.  RidgeBack Basement Systems installed a proven effective solution with our patented sump pump system.

The outside foundation of this addition also has rotting plywood covering some foam insulation, which needs to be replaced with something more durable.

Hello- I just purchased a house and the basement is leaking water. Would someone be able to come in and take a look?
Project Location: Truro, NS
I have a crack in the bottom of my foundation. It's at the front of my house, in the middle of the front wall. I noticed water in the Fall once when there was a heavy rain. It leaked bad the last bad rain storm we had on January 21st. Now whenever it rains hard it leaks from the crack to the right side of the basement. I have contacted another company on January 22nd and they were finally scheduled to come last week to provide a quote but never called or came and they haven't returned my calls since I would appreciate if you could come & take a look and provide a quote Thank you
