Identifying and Repairing Issues Related To Basement Floor Cracks, Foundation Settlement and Solutions
Basement Floor Cracks – The Causes:
Basement floor cracks are the result of house settling. House settling occurs when the ground your home is built on is no longer able to support the weight of your house. The result is a cracked basement floor or concrete cracks in the walls of your foundation.
Basement Moisture Problems
Basement cracks grow over time. As the cracks grow, water will seep in, creating basement waterproofing problems.
Can I Fix My Cracked Basement Floor?
Don’t assume that a cracked basement floor can always be repaired with a concrete patch, caulking or sand packing. While these solutions fix the concrete crack they don’t address and repair the source of the crack. It’s best to have your home inspected by a foundation repair contractor before repairing a symptom that may be a sign that you have a serious foundation issue.
Most of the time concrete cracks in your basement floor mean you have a serious foundation issue. The cracks almost always get worse over time, create safety issues, and basement moisture/water problems; all while becoming more expensive to repair.
