Foundation Wall Crack Repair in Northern VA

Stair step cracks are a very common problem and a likely sign of foundation settlement.

Foundation cracks come in many varieties, but all could be indicators of a problem with your foundation. If you have horizontal or vertical wall cracks, "stair-step" or diagonal cracking, bulging, buckling foundation walls, or pushing in at the bottom or top of the wall, you could need foundation repair.

Foundation wall cracks have several different causes, and each has its own unique solution. Concrete walls may experience small cracks as they cure. These are normal and maybe no cause for alarm. However, walls cracking due to foundation settlement issues or expansive soils may require some repair work.

Cracks form in foundation walls for three main reasons:

Cracks on interior walls can be a sign of a sagging crawl space rather than a settling foundation.

Sagging Crawl Spaces

Crawl spaces can sag when the support beams sink into the ground. They can also sink when mold and rot weaken floor joists and girders, or when too few crawl space support posts are in place to adequately support the structure bearing down from above them.

As crawl spaces sag, the floor above will also sink. As the floor sinks, it can pull on the partition walls attached to it, leading to drywall cracks. We can repair sagging crawl spaces with effective support posts.

Heaving Or Sinking Slab Floors

When the soils underneath slab floors settle or are washed away, the floor itself will begin to sag. Likewise, when the soils underneath a concrete floor expand, the slab will begin to lift upwards.

Either way, the movement of concrete floors can lead to cracks along the drywall and the floor itself. We can help your repair concrete floors that are sinking or heaving.
