Cracked Block Foundation – What’s It Mean?

Cracked blocks in your home’s foundation can show up in many forms – vertical, horizontal, stair-step, and block gaps. Chances are that the cracks in your concrete block foundation are telling you that your home needs foundation repair. Look for the following:

r

Horizontal Block Cracks

This type of crack is screaming that your home’s foundation is in trouble! The pressure from the soil pushing against your foundation is creating points of weakness – which is where the horizontal cracks are appearing. If this problem isn’t repaired, the wall will eventually collapse.

r

Vertical Block Cracks

Indicate that your house is settling. These cracks typically grow over time, becoming wider and letting water leak into your foundation – creating a waterproofing problem. If vertical cracks appear in more than one area or if the cracks appear in brick, stone or concrete blocks, get help now! It could be telling you that your foundation needs additional support.

r

Stair-Step Block Cracks

These cracks form when your home is settling unevenly. House settling occurs when the soil your home is built on is no longer able to support the weight of your house. The soil will shift and change, forcing your foundation to do the same.

Cracked Block Foundation – A DIY Fix?

Don’t assume that a foundation crack or a cracked block in your concrete block foundation can be easily repaired with mortar or caulk. These are only cosmetic fixes which don’t repair any structural problems or address the cause of your home’s cracked foundation. It’s best to have a foundation repair professional inspect your cracked block foundation before repairing a problem that may be a sign that you have a serious foundation issue.

Most of the time cracked blocks in your foundation mean you have a serious foundation issue. The cracks almost always get worse over time, creating more problems in your home while becoming more expensive to repair.

JES offers several foundation repair solutions, also known as underpinning. Underpinning is the process of stabilizing your home’s foundation by installing piers under your home’s foundation. The stabilization piers are installed into a stable layer of soil, providing a long-term solution to your home’s foundation problems.

If your home needs repair, we will work with you to create a customized, economical foundation repair solution to your home’s cracked block, foundation cracks and other foundation issues. And if your concrete cracks are nothing more than a cosmetic problem, we will tell you.

The inspector spent quite a lot of time going over our basement foundation, inside and outside and was very helpful with suggestions. We were very pleased that there was no charge for this assessment and would definitely recommend JES to others or use again ourselves if a future situation arises.
