Concrete is guaranteed to do two things overtime.
Harden / Cure, and Crack / Break.
While a crack or break in your concrete sidewalk generally occurs due to the elements, cracks or breaks in your home's foundation generally occur due to settlement, hydro-static pressure, or age.
Foundation cracks are often the first sign of a structural issue in your home and come in a variety of forms.
To continue our promise to our Homeowners or Prospective Homeowners, we've complied a list of things to monitor when you believe you may have a unnatural cracking in your home's foundation:
It's important to note that ANY HORIZONTAL crack in your foundation wall should be inspected and remedied immediately.
If you see ANY of these signs in your foundation cracks, it is time to get an inspection.
Foundation cracks do not get better over time, only worse, and will ultimately lead to more expensive repairs.
As stated before, all concrete, at some point, will crack or break overtime.
Most businesses train their sales team to scare and intimidate homeowners into making impulse decisions when it come's to cracks or breaks in their home's foundation or crawlspace.
A good practice is to take a Dime and place is sideways into the crack. If the foundation crack or crack in your concrete floor is wider then the crack, it's time to get an inspection.
At DLN Solutions, we train our Project Liaisons as true Structural Analysts, providing actual solutions instead of over-selling a problem.
Our Project Liaisons will effectively utilize a tape measure to measure the length and width of the foundation crack or crack in your concrete floor.
While speaking with your Project Liaisons it's important to inform them of any water intrusion, odors, moisture, or rapid growth of the crack.
If your Project Liaison identifies an issue that needs to be remedied, they will discuss our various Foundation Crack Repair Solutions.
With over 30+ years of experience in the Foundation Repair, Drainage, and Basement Waterproofing field, you can trust the DLN Solutions diagnosis of your home's foundation cracking.
If our Project Liaisons identify that a remedy to foundation cracking is needed, they may recommend our Foundation Crack Repair Method.
