Doors and windows that stick may indicate the warping or distortion of your home’s frame due to foundation failure and moisture intrusion.

Horizontal cracks along your foundation wall indicate that the structural integrity of your foundation wall has been compromised either due to freeze-thaw cycles or hydro-static pressure, pressure against your foundation wall from the outside.

This pressure is very strong, can cause your foundation walls to buckle, and is a leading cause of foundation cracks and water seeping in.

A Step Crack–horizontal and vertical cracking between the cinder blocks or bricks; the crack line can look like steps. These types of cracks allow water to get into the basement.

Cracks in the cinder blocks themselves are also serious; if you see them, call us to meet with a foundation specialist as soon as possible.

A Vertical Crack– Vertical foundation cracks from the top of your foundation wall to the bottom — on two adjacent walls could mean that the foundation’s footing is broken.
