Basement Wall Cracks Tell a Story of Structural Foundation Damage


Basement Wall Cracks Tell a Story of Structural Foundation Damage

One way to mitigate damage from a structural foundation problem and lower the cost of its repair is to spot the problem early.

Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t know the signs of foundation damage and may ignore the problem unintentionally until it has progressed beyond the point of easy repair.  One way to spot damage to a foundation is to keep an eye on cracks in basement walls.

Small, non-structural cracks are common and may be only a source of water seepage.  Structural cracks, on the other hand, indicate wall movement that can damage plumbing, utilities and, ultimately, the structure of the home above.

To learn how to spot potential foundation damage in your home please watch the brief video below.  Early detection of a foundation problem may save you time, aggravation and money.

The foundation repair experts at U.S. Waterproofing have the experience to distinguish a non-structural crack from a structural one and to interpret the story told by crack patterns in your basement.  Please ask us for a free consultation if you spot cracks in your basement walls.
