Cracks In Your Foundation?
Small cracks are normal as your home settles over time. However, most cracks in a basement or foundation, if not repaired, can lead to homeowner headaches down the road. Cracks in the foundation can allow water to seep in – which can cause mold, mildew, and bowing walls; which then compromise the stability of the foundation. It is vital to ensure your foundation is intact and stable so that it can handle normal pressure caused by freezing and thawing, as well as hydrostatic pressure caused by water in confined spaces pressing against basement and foundation walls.
Not all basement or foundation cracks are the same. There are many different causes and if they’re left undiagnosed and untreated, they have the potential to cause problems down the road. Our professional team can assess your foundation, identify what kind of crack(s) you have, and then determine the best solution to repair it.
