The Trusted Choice for Foundation Repairs
Did you know that certain types of cracks are quite common and won’t cause any issues, while others can be a symptom of significant structural damage? Below are descriptions of potential causes of cracks in your foundation:
- Shrinkage Cracks: As your concrete foundation dries, shrinkage may occur, and small cracks might appear as that happens. Typically, these cracks will begin near the floor and will not reach to the top of the foundation. Shrinkage cracks are one example of cracks that are not structural.
- Settling Cracks: Another example of cracks that are not structural are those that can develop as the home settles. This type of crack is usually wider at the top and may or may not reach to the bottom of the foundation.
- Cold Pour: Can you see horizontal seams on your foundation that angle upward? These can occur during construction as the concrete is being poured. When one load of concrete begins to harden before the next load is poured, these cold pour seams can be the result. While not structural in nature, they can still lead to leakage.
- Structural Cracks: Buckling or bowing walls, as well as cracks that run either vertically horizontally, are common signs of a structural crack. This term refers to any sort of crack that can jeopardize the structural integrity of a home.
