Hi all,

I have seen a crack on the basement walls of my home. It is just a single crack, but requires prompt attention before it becomes part of a larger problem. Waterproofing is the ideal solution that will ensure that the repair lasts, and the cracked surface is fortified against common types of potential future damage.

But my question, can I hire waterproofing service providers only for an individual crack? Or is there a way that I can fix it up somehow, like using silicone fillers to fill the cracks. But does that stay longer? I need to waterproof and seal the cracks.
What should I do?

Stucco repair companies can come repair cracks and patches with a waterproof stucco. You definitely want to get a waterproof patch or you will continue to have issues with moisture over time.

I too fill white concrete whenever this kind of things appear! Hire a professional when you are working for more maintenance.
