Why Basements Walls Crack

Different basement wall cracks form for different reasons;

Vertical cracks running up and down basement walls are caused by; wall movements, material shrinkage, or tipping walls.

Horizontal cracks run horizontally/parallel to the basement floor are linked to lateral pressure originating from the soil. The cracks usually make basement walls bow out.

Diagonal cracks run diagonally. They are linked to soil pressure. Those originating from the window or door corners are usually linked to concrete shrinkage or foundation settling.

Foundation cracks are basement cracks appearing on the foundation. They are linked to cement shrinkage and rarely pose any serious risk if they don’t cause displacement or align with other cracks.

Signs That You Have a Bigger Issue than Just a Crack in Your Basement Wall

Large cracks

Any basement cracks that are over 0.5-inches in width indicate serious underlying structural problems.

Shifting Cracks

Basement cracks that shift should also be a cause for concern. Ideally, a crack should align with the wall on the opposite end. If not, the foundation or footing may have rotated.

Expanding Cracks

Cracks that enlarge with time are also an indication of a bigger problem. The increase can be in length or width.

Horizontal Cracks

You should also be worried about cracks, especially those that appear on the wall and a matching crack running on the floor.

Continuous Cracks

Cracks running from the wall to the floor continuously indicate possible soil/geotechnical problems that you should be worried about.

Cracks Alongside Tilting or Leaning Walls

Cracks that appear along structural problems like a bent wall should also be taken seriously.

Benefits of Repairing Basement Wall Cracks

  1. Cost Savings: It’s cheaper to deal with basement cracks before they cause more serious structural problems.
  2. Safety Benefits: Basement crack repair stops possible risks like a total or partial collapse of vital structural components of a home.
  3. Increased Home Value: Repairing basement cracks may fetch a better selling price in areas prone to basement problems.
  4. Prevents Basement Water/moisture problems: Cracks can let in water into the basement and cause mold problems, pest infestation, insect infestation, and other expensive and hazardous basement problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please take a moment to read answers to our most frequently asked questions about our services.
Cracks with heaving are signs of a more serious problem that must be addressed. Heaving is widespread in areas with clay soil. It is cause for concern when a basement floor fracture happens in combination with heaving. Heaving indicates the expansion of the ground beneath the basement floor.
The typical foundation repair cost for a property is somewhat more than $4000, or between $1800 and $6500. Minor crack repair can cost as low as $500, while substantial structural repairs or underpinning might cost up to $10,000.
They are a natural part of the curing and hardening process for concrete. There are several efficient methods for preventing cracks from worsening, but there is no practical method for making them disappear. Remember that, like any other stone, concrete hardens and cracks with time.
The good news is that foundation wall fractures may often be repaired quickly and cheaply. With the exception of tiny shrinkage cracks, each foundation wall fracture should be inspected by an expert foundation repair professional.
If the source of the damage is covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy, foundation repair will be paid as well. Damage from earthquakes, flooding, and the shifting and cracking of your foundation over time, on the other hand, is not covered.
