Foundation Cracks: A Symptom of Poor Building Methods

Some owners of existing or relatively new homes and structures encounter foundation cracks that can run vertically or horizontally from ceilings to floors and even through all sides of the structure. More susceptible are basements or lower level rooms. Water and air can seep through these cracks causing water damage and other forms of inconvenience to the occupants of the home.

Types of Foundation Cracks

Foundation cracks can occur in block and concrete foundations, and usually in the corners of buildings and houses. Here are the different types and some tips for you to control the damage they can do to your home.
