Tie Rod Leaks
The first step in pouring a foundation wall is to construct a form for the concrete. The tie rod refers to the small metal strap/rod that holds the inner and outer forms together. After the concrete has cured and the forms are pulled, these are usually snapped off flush to the wall. Over a period of time these can rust out and allow water to migrate into the basement and create a major problem.
In most cases these can be repaired from the interior with a simple injection. However, they can also be addressed from the exterior. One of our staff members is happy to come inspect your tie rods and will advise you as to the best approach.
