Foundation Crack Management

Request a Call Back

Foundation cracks can be unsightly, leaky, and generally worrisome. But most foundation cracks are not a serious problem.

Foundation cracks are common and not an absolute indication that you have structural problems. Cracks, however, can allow water penetration causing high moisture, puddles, and even more serious flooding. Needless to say mold and mildew often follows un-managed water from cracks.

 

However, they can be something of an issue when they allow water intrusion. If not dealt with, the water will create mold, mildew, rot, and an environment for insects and rodents. We will help manage your cracked walls by controlling any moisture that they allow into your home. The remedy can be as simple as a vapor barrier. In other cases more elaborate remedies are required.

The fix can be a stand-alone solution or part of a comprehensive basement system.

HINT: To determine whether your cracked wall is from ongoing settling, use a straight edge to draw a pencil line across the crack. Check the pencil line from time to time to see if it is separating or moving. If it does, your foundation is settling.
