Basement Wall Crack Repair in New Jersey

Foundation & Basement Wall Crack Repair in New Jersey

Concrete is made of cement, gravel and water. When the water starts to evaporate, the remaining ingredients then harden into a solid slab of concrete. Unfortunately, this portion of the process can cause the concrete to shrink a bit, resulting in hairline cracks in the slab. Even though these cracks do not threaten the structural integrity of the house, it does provide an opening for groundwater, insects and even radon gas to pass through.

Which Direction?

The direction of a crack can tell you if you need to take action or not. If you have a horizontal structural crack, then it isn't anything to worry about. If you see vertical cracks, or cracks that look like a staircase, they indicate a far more serious problem and you may require structural crack repairs.

What's The Size?

If it's a hairline crack, these aren't very serious and can be easily repaired. Even if the magnitude isn't as severe (i.e. bulging or slanting), it's worth repairing to prevent bigger structural problems and cracks in the future.

What Causes Horizontal Cracks?

Most horizontal cracks happen with frost damage. Freezing temperatures can actually cause the concrete to shrink. Cracks can also be caused from an excess of pressure on the foundation from wet soil. The most important thing to realize is that if you see a bulging crack, this could mean that the home is slowly sliding off of its footing and needs to be taken care of immediately.
