Repairing Cracks in Basement Walls

Cracks around your home are actually pretty common, especially if your home is older! You have likely noticed them around door frames, window sills, on basement walls, or on the ceiling. Cracks come in all shapes, sizes, and types, and it can be hard to know which ones are a sign of major problems and which ones are not a big deal. The easiest way to tell is to call us here at Foundation Systems of West Virginia. We can provide you with a free in-home inspection and estimate. As professionals, we will be able to identify and evaluate the cracks around your home so you can know for sure if they are a problem or not. We can provide you with options for repairs, as well!

Watching Out for Cracks in Basement Walls

If you would like to have an idea of what to look for yourself, make sure to keep an eye out for:

  1. Cracks that are wider than 1/8″
  2. Cracks that go from floor to ceiling
  3. Cracks that are leaking or letting in pests
  4. Having multiple cracks on one wall
  5. Stair-step cracks in brick walls

These can all be signs of a deeper foundation issue and will likely need underpinning or other repairs to fix them, so if you already know the crack in your home is similar to what is listed above, make sure to give us a call. We understand that foundation repairs are expensive, but we want to make sure your home is as safe as possible, so we will provide you with options that will fit your budget. We are also not in the business of repairing cracks that aren’t serious. If your cracks are due to concrete not curing correctly or other reasons that aren’t going to cause harm to your house, we won’t try to tell you that you need foundation repairs. Foundation Systems of West Virginia believes in providing top quality and honest service to our customers! Contact us today to schedule your free inspection and estimate.
