We get a lot of questions about foundations. Here are a couple of them with answers that you might find useful.
1. Are all foundation cracks bad? The average homeowner freaks out when they see a crack on the foundation. However, it’s important to note that not all cracks signify foundation damage. For example, some hairline cracks are just normal parts of the settling process. And sometimes these cracks, when found in basement walls, can simply be fixed through concrete crack injection. However, make sure you don’t try to diagnose them by yourself. Just give us a ring and we will check them out for you.
2. Can a home really collapse? It may seem like a scare tactic, but if basement walls are put under enough stress and aren’t functioning properly, then a home could actually collapse. Yes, that’s worst case scenario, but certainly not something you want to risk.
