Floor Cracks

Floor cracks are one of many signs that there may be problems occurring beneath your home. Floor cracks are a common foundation problem that occur when the foundation settles or sinks. If left untreated, floor cracks can expand and grow, allowing leaks to occur.

Causes of Floor Cracks

  • Shrinkage of Soil – When the ground around your foundation is very dry the soils around your foundation can shrink. This causes a lack of support for foundation walls which can cause the foundation to move or shift.
  • Expansion of Soil – Cracks can occur when concrete is put under pressure. When the soil is filled with groundwater, it can expand and push against foundation walls.
  • Heaving of the Ground – During freezing and thawing the ground is known to heave or expand very quickly causing the concrete above it to crack, shift, and move. This can cause cracks throughout the structure.
