Recognizing the Signs of a Foundation Problem

The first step to correcting your foundation problem is learning how to recognize what is normal and what isn’t. Foundation cracks come in many shapes and forms, and not all of them indicate an issue. For example, small cracks that happen when concrete cures don’t usually indicate a problem. These are the most potentially dangerous cracks to be aware of:

  • Stair-step patterns
  • Cracks larger than 1/8-inch wide
  • Cracks that are leaking water
  • Cracks that change or get worse

Causes of Foundation Wall Cracks

Cracks in your foundation walls can happen for a few different reasons. The three most common are weather-related soil disturbance, poor compaction during construction, and hydrostatic pressure. Shifting, settling, and oversaturated soils can cause significant damage. Walls that begin to bow or buckle under pressure will usually exhibit large, horizontal cracks. With any of these problems, it’s imperative to have the cracks diagnosed by a professional before they get worse.

The Real Dirt on Foundation Problems

Foundation problems happen for four unavoidable reasons: overly dry soil, oversaturated soil, poorly compacted soil, and the type of soil around your home. Each of these, or a combination of these, leads to things like foundation settlement, foundation heave, and a multitude of other symptoms that happen due to structural problems.
