Tie Rods are common in the construction of most homes. After construction, these tie rods are removed, leaving a hole behind. Since water tends to trace the path of least resistance, water finds its way through these seemingly hollow tie rods over time. A sign of leaking tie rod holes is a small stain the size of a coin, or a stain leaking water down to the floor.
Waterproof Foam/Inserts & Sakrete Bonding Cement
Each rod hole is individually drilled out and injected with waterproof foam and waterproof inserts followed by a bonding cement. This bonding cement is a professional-grade, fiber-reinforced Portland cement based coating for concrete block and masonry walls. This highly flexible can be used to damp-proof existing block walls, as a scratch and brown or parge coat, or to build block walls without mortar joints – saving labor compared to traditional masonry construction.
