How Do I Know If My Foundation Crack Is A Structural Concern?

This is a commonly asked question by homeowners who may be concerned that their crack is more than ‘just a crack’.

 Adding to the confusion could be the quantity of varying ‘solutions’ homeowners receive from foundation repair contractors.

And while most foundation wall cracks pose no threat to the structural integrity of a foundation, there are definitely foundation problems that warrant extensive, structural repairs.

 The Crack Wizard has twenty-plus years experience in assessing structural symptoms, and can quickly and accurately recommend a means of repair to solve your foundation related problem.

But for homeowners who want to know what they can do themselves, here are a few quick and easy tips that can help ease concerns about whether your foundation problem is minor or more involved:

 One.  Are your doors and windows closing properly?  Regardless of what you’ve read or what you’ve been told, your foundation is probably in adequate shape if you can close your doors and windows without noticing gaps or ‘sticking’.  Two.  If you have foundation wall cracks, rub your hand over the crack(s) to feel for any significant displacement.  Meaning, is one side of the foundation crack higher or lower than the other? Typically, cracks that don’t have noticeable displacement can usually be pressure injected, and may not require structural repairs.  Three.  Do you notice any cracking on the exterior of your foundation?  Homeowners with brick exteriors should not be alarmed by ‘stairstep pattern’ cracks through the mortar joints.  However, if homeowners notice vertical cracks through the actual bricks themselves, that could be a symptom that requires structural attention.

If you do notice symptoms that could be indicative of structural issues, consider contacting a Structural Engineer to objectively evaluate your foundation BEFORE getting bids.

Why Does Concrete Crack?

Concrete consists of cement, sand, gravel and water.  As the water in the slurry evaporates, the remaining ingredients cure in to a hard slab.

This curing process causes the concrete to shrink slightly, resulting in cracked concrete.

 Certainly variances in moisture and/or temperature play a role in the expansion and shrinkage of concrete, and all poured concrete foundations are inherently susceptible to cracking over time.  Whether foundation cracks are caused by the normal curing process or by settlement (albeit normal, minor settlement),

most foundation cracks in poured concrete foundations pose no threat to the structural integrity of the foundation.

 However, foundation wall cracks can allow ground water in to the basement, causing water damage to finished areas and personal property.  Leaking foundation cracks are one of the biggest problems facing homeowners, and they can occur in any home, at any time, regardless of the age of the house.

For homeowners with leaking foundation cracks, the repair options can vary greatly in terms of cost, disruption, and permanency.

 Since most foundation wall cracks can be easily and permanently repaired from inside the basement, The

Crack Wizard recommends pressure-injecting these types of cracks with either an epoxy or urethane resin.

 The Crack Wizard’s pressure-injection repair process is done from inside the home, so it eliminates the need for outside digging or excavation.  And if the source of the water is coming from the crack, the installation of a sump-pump or other type of pressure relief system isn’t necessary.  Plus, The Crack Wizard specializes in repairing cracks that have been previously patched, repaired or injected.  Foundation wall cracks with prior repairs can be permanently waterproofed by The Crack Wizard, with our repairs backed by a ‘Lifetime of the Structure Crack Wizard Warranty’!

The Crack Wizard is open 7 days a week, and can provide free pricing information online at www.thecrackwizard.com, or by calling Toll Free (888)-CRACK WIZARD (1-888-272-2594).

Will Repairing A Foundation Crack Cause Other Foundation Cracks To Develop?

No.  When foundation cracks in a poured concrete wall are repaired by The Crack Wizard, any ground water that would make its way through the crack will just migrate in to the earth.

 And while there is logic to the conventional wisdom of “water finding the path of least resistance”, the reality is,  a properly repaired foundation crack will not cause other cracks to develop.

For homeowners with common foundation wall cracks that are not indicative of structural defects, the best repair option is to have the crack pressure-injected with a urethane resin or epoxy resin.

 Once a crack is pressure-injected with an epoxy resin or urethane resin, the  foundation crack becomes impermeable to water penetration.  Ground water that would typically end up on a basement wall or floor will ultimately evaporate in to the ground, as opposed to “creating other cracks”.   One of the common misconceptions about foundation cracks is that they are caused by lateral water pressure against the foundation.

However, most foundation wall cracks are caused by the natural shrinkage and/or settlement (albeit normal settlement) of a poured concrete foundation, and not undue water pressure against the foundation.

 Poured concrete foundations are inherently susceptible to cracking, and treating a foundation crack will NOT cause other cracks to develop.  Finally, many foundation cracks develop in the ‘weak points’ of a basement, such as corners of windows and off the corners of support beams.

These cracks are common, minor and can be permanently and affordably repaired by The Crack Wizard.

 The Crack Wizard’s exclusively formulated sealants and resins provide clean, odorless repairs that are backed by our Lifetime ‘Crack Wizard’ Warranty.
