The owner of such a company works a lot, of course. Travels a lot, probably. But he can't be everywhere at once. This means that finding the right associates, controlling the quality of the tasks performed, building a network of contacts, and acquiring customers become a project, not just a single task.

The 12th episode of Concrete Injection Made Easy is a transcript of yesterday's webinar, which was a session of answering your questions.
I replied about why I insist on drilling smaller holes and using smaller than 13mm packers.

One complaint I often hear from clients who have ordered concrete leak sealing procedures in which an acrylic gel was used is that under some conditions, the expansion joint leaks again. This problem happens typically because of dry weather, which causes acrylic gels dry out and shrink. And when acrylic gels dry, they lose their elasticity, and ability to adhere to concrete walls. And t...
