Why Wall Cracks Happen
Cracks in your foundation’s walls and floor are a common occurrence. Some are natural and happen when your home’s concrete cures during new construction. However, cracks that are due to settlement are an issue. These kinds of fissures indicate structural failure. The most typical foundation problems we see that cause basement cracks are:
- Concrete floor heave
- Foundation settlement
- Bowing walls from hydrostatic pressure
