Basement Cracks in South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska
Common Problems in your South Dakota Home
Basement cracks may seem simple if caught early enough, but most of the time, basement cracks signal a deeper foundation failure problem. Almost all cracks that you find around your foundation, whether they be in a wall, floor, or slab, are a sign of a deeper problem.
Cracks come in different shapes and sizes, showing you something different about your home’s foundation. For example, if you have a small crack on your hands, it most likely means your foundation problem will be easily fixed because the crack has just begun. If you have a larger crack, it probably means you have a more serious foundation failure problem.
How cracks are angled can also tell you different things about your home’s foundation. For example, if the cracks in your basement’s walls are angled diagonally, it most likely shows that your home’s foundation is beginning to settle. Settlement can be a problem that is dangerous if not fixed as soon as possible, but there is also regular settling of a home that may cause hairline cracks but no real damage. Your home will begin to move into voids left by moving soil, becoming unstable. If let go, settlement can even make a house completely crumble. Fortunately, with Rapid Foundation Repair around, you don’t need to worry. We are the best when it comes to basement crack identification and repair.
