We count on our foundations to be just that: stable, durable and the very basis of our sense of security in our homes. However, foundations may react to the changes in the land in which they’re built. If you notice signs such as cracks in a floor, in concrete around your home, in interior drywall or exterior brick or if you notice uneven floors or gaps between your floor and wall, these are all worrisome signs of possible foundation problems.
Home Foundation Cracks: Can They Be Repaired?
If you have spied a crack, don’t panic – but call Pristine Waterproofing promptly. Our professionals are equipped to offer you state-of-the-art diagnosis and solutions to your foundation problems. We’ll come out to your house to examine your foundation and determine not only the extent and location of foundation cracks, but also why they might be forming. We’ll consider the size and location of a crack, as well as the shape and pattern in which cracks are forming, if there is more than one. We also look for any movement on either side of the crack. Once we’ve completed our evaluation, we’ll provide you with an explanation of our findings, our proposed solution and a free estimate of the cost of implementing that solution.
