Cracks May Indicate That Your Foundation Needs a Repair Service
A foundation repair service is needed if the structural integrity of your foundation has been compromised, but, you may be wondering, what are some of the signs that your foundation is damaged? One indication that your foundation may need repairs is if the walls are showing vertical, horizontal, or stair step cracks, which is often due to the foundation shifting. If a crack is very small and thin, there is usually no cause for alarm, but cracks that are large, you can comfortably fit a coin in, or runs in multiple directions should be seen by a foundation repair expert. This is because a crack in your foundation can indicate:
- That there is too much or too little moisture in the soil
- That the soil was improperly compacted during construction
- That your home is settling
Other indications that your foundation has been damaged are bowed or eroded walls, uneven floors, gaps between the walls and floor or ceiling, and an unstable or leaning chimney.
