You should definitely do a crack injection, as opposed to what I would call a Band-Aid job. A Band-Aid job is where you just take some cement or even epoxy paint and you just put it over the crack. You know, just like a Band-Aid, creating a barrier. The crack is still there, right? Okay, let's say you have an 8-inch wall and you have just sealed the inside of the crack but water still comes up. It will work its way in and eventually and it will totally re-crack that wall. So you don't want to do it. What you want to do is some kind of a crack injection approach where the material, you are not just putting it on the surface, your are actually completely filling that entire crack with either an epoxy or polyurethane. The water can't even begin to get into that and work its way up because we have got now blocked it off completely. This will substantially strengthen that wall.
