Because your foundation is responsible for supporting your home, it must stay structurally intact. Foundation cracks can affect its structural stability. They create weak spots which can be pushed inward, causing bowed walls and foundation leaks. When you notice wall cracks, you must contact a professional foundation repair company, like First Choice Waterproofing, for professional foundation wall crack repairs before there are significant consequences to your home.

At First Choice Waterproofing we provide homeowners in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and the surrounding areas with expert foundation crack repair services.

What Causes Foundation Wall Cracks?

Gallery Foundation wall cracks occur on both poured concrete and concrete block foundations. They may appear differently based on the material, but the same set of environmental factors causes basement wall cracks. Cracks in poured concrete walls are typically diagonal, extending from the bottom corners of the wall toward the center. Cracks in concrete block walls usually occur along the joint lines between the concrete blocks, with horizontal cracking near the mid-point of the walls and “stair step” cracking at the corners.

The leading cause of cracked basement walls is foundation settlement, bowing walls, and hydrostatic pressure. Regardless of the reason, these are serious problems that will only worsen over time if not corrected. By accurately diagnosing what conditions are causing the foundation damage, we can determine the best solution to resolve the problem.

What is Hydrostatic Pressure?

Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure that is caused by excess groundwater in the soil surrounding your foundation. This water builds up in the soil, adding extra weight and pressure against the foundation.

The carbon fiber strip fastens to the wall using a sill plate and connects to the foundation base for equal distribution of pressure.
