What Causes Foundation Cracks?
Foundation cracks are typically caused by a sinking or settling foundation putting stress on the concrete slab or the brickwork supporting the home. A house will settle when the soil is not compacted correctly, is overly wet or dry throughout the year, has poor drainage, or if the temperature fluctuates a lot over time. The changing moisture levels in the soil can also cause voids to form in the soil which the foundation will sink into. Depending on what is causing the foundation problem, we have a different repair solution.
