Is that crack in your basement floor or foundation dangerous? That simple question can cost thousands and thousands of dollars if you don’t answer it right away.
Some cracks in your basement are completely harmless. Others are a sign of a much bigger problem. The cracks in your basement may be caused by:
- Drying or thermal shrinkage
- Settlement or the cement not being able to settle
- The steel rebar corroding and expanding inside of the concrete
If it’s a small crack (around 5 feet in length) we would simply patch it. If it’s something more, or in a newer home, we would likely patch down to the footing.
It’s always best to have a trained professional inspect any and all worrisome cracks, so you can address the issue, or get the peace-of-mind of knowing it’s nothing serious.
