Four Things Foundation Wall Cracks Are Telling You
Foundation wall cracks can be a simple sign of concrete shrinkage that may or may not leak when it rains. A wall crack can also be a sign of larger structural issue, such as bowing or buckling of walls from outside pressure.
Telling the difference between serious and not so serious basement cracks is where BDry can help.
Here’s what your basement cracks might be telling you:
- 1. Cracks on the interior walls are often the first indication of foundation damage. Sometimes these signs may go unnoticed because changes occur slowly.
- 2. Horizontal cracks are usually caused by water- and frost-related pressure against the foundation wall.
- 3. Vertical cracks in poured concrete walls are less damaging but may indicate a settling foundation.
- 4. Stair step cracks in block foundation walls are a common occurrence but may be a sign of a more serious problem.
Some of these problems require simple fixes. Others can be a more serious problem; such as buckling or bowing walls that require reinforcement.
BDry can help you figure out which is which. We are always available for a free, no-obligation consultation. Give us a call today.
