Common Home Foundation Problems And The Solutions We Offer

You may have noticed cracks along the walls or floors in your basement. These cracks can range from hairline to larger more defined openings depending on the amount of Hydrostatic Pressure (water pressure) being around the outside of your home’s foundation. You may also have noticed moisture or dampness on the floor or walls after a heavy or saturating rain. Cracks manifest in a variety of shapes, sizes, and directions. For example, you may see step cracks and vertical or horizontal cracks along the foundation walls. It is important to note that cracks like this do not usually appear naturally. Settling, hydrostatic pressure, tree root intrusion, nearby construction, and age are also cause of this type of problem.

Four Stages Of Foundation Cracking These are the warning signs to watch out for!

four-stages-of-foundation-cracking-jpg

FIRST STAGE

Cracks typically start as a hairline crack from the outside showing no noticeable signs on the inside to start.

SECOND STAGE

Cracks work their way about halfway through the wall, just inside the hollows and mortar joints of a block wall and midway through a poured concrete wall. During this stage signs of water, mold/mildew, peeling paint, white powder, warped paneling, musty odor may appear.

THIRD STAGE

The actual crack will now be visible from the inside. Make no mistake, there is now an open pathway from inside the house to the outside. At this point, immediate action should be taken. With wall cracks you may or may not see; water or dampness.

FOURTH STAGE

At this point the crack is at its advanced stage. You may notice water, mud, insects and even foundation movement, such as corners shifting/cracking, floor buckling or bowing walls. In this stage there is serious structural damage and immediate action must be taken.
