There are countless news articles online that discuss how cities are paying tens of thousands of dollars to inject epoxy into structural cracks and often, let leaking pools sit until they are drained and often becoming more damaged with time. The rising cost of repeat repairs, closures and frustration does not have to exist. Structural cracks can be permanently repaired using Torque Lock Structural Staples, and any contractor can do this – fast!
