What You Need to Know About Basement Wall Cracks

Wall cracks come in various types, including horizontal or vertical cracks running the length of the wall, stair-step cracks, and diagonal cracks in corners around doors and windows. Basement wall cracks are generally caused by the natural shrinkage of concrete as it cures, foundation settlement, and expansive soils. Though a small crack may not be cause for concern, any significant crack could indicate structural problems with your foundation.

Cracks in your basement walls can also create additional issues with water leaking into your home.

By catching and addressing issues with your foundation early, you may be able to avoid expensive structural repair altogether.
