Are Cracks in my Basement Floor a Problem?
The short answer is yes. Usually, these types of basement cracks appear in concrete basement floors or garage slabs. These cracks may start out small and may not be very noticeable, but over time they will continue to get worse and compromise structural integrity or allow water to seep into your basement. The best thing you can do for a cracked basement floor is call a professional at Quality Foundation and have the damage assessed.
Cracked Floors: Signs of bigger problems
While a small crack in your basement floor may not seem like much to worry about, a cracking floor may be an indicator of a deeper problem. Typically, when you see cracking in your floor, it’s a sign of foundation settlement. As your foundation settles, basement cracks can become visible. These issues will not go away on their own. Damage to foundations will only worsen with time and foundation crack repair should be started as soon as possible. Calling a foundation expert on the extent of the damage can save you from extensive foundation issues later.
