Causes of Cracks in your Basement
Before repairing a basement crack, it is important to know the nature of the crack and its effects on your structure some of which are:
Movement of the Ground
Due to the movement and shifting of the ground around the foundation, cracks occur and multiply with time.
The soil beneath a foundation wall compresses due to heavy rain or water leaks resulting in vertical wall cracks.
Soon after the construction of the house, the poured concrete foundation dries or shrinks leading to cracks.
Benefits of Basement Crack Repair
A timely repair can help you save money and your basement in the long run. Other advantages include:
Increased Home Value
Mending your basement not only ensures the stability of your house but also becomes an attractive investment for potential buyers.
Leaving the damaged foundation unattended might lead to plumbing problems such as leaks in the toilet or sink area. Foundation repair often includes a sump pump to avert flooding issues in the future.
Saves Your Time
Basement repair can be time-consuming as the foundation will shift over time and can cause aesthetic damage to your home. Taking care of little issues can spare you from bigger problems down the road.
