Causes of Foundation Cracks & Issues
Every home is different, and as a result, each foundation problem may have come from its own unique source. There are so many possible factors to consider when dealing with foundation repair that only a qualified and trained expert could possibly take them all into account.
Concrete Block Foundations
For example, concrete block foundations can produce bulges or cracks due to external pressure from water and shifting soil. These kinds of foundations are more likely to produce horizontal cracking. This is where a trusted engineer should come into play for an examination of any displaced blocks or bricks.
Poured Concrete Foundations
With poured concrete foundations, sometimes mixes of lesser quality concrete can cause unnecessary impact vibrations or mixtures that shrink in size after they harden. This will cause a lot of tension in certain areas which will have an effect on the foundation’s structural integrity over time.
Another example is with stone-based foundations. While stone is not a popular foundation these days, it was quite common a couple of hundred years ago. Many of these homes still exist on the market today. Because of the way cement is laid over the stones, water can occasionally get stuck in between them which can lead to deterioration of the foundation over time.
