“How do you fix a basement wall crack?” is a generic question we at Abarent are asked all of the time. Repairing basement wall cracks should be something that is done after the cause of the concrete cracks is determined. There are a few important questions you need to ask yourself: Is there settlement? Is there structural movement? Are lateral loads too great for the foundation wall? Is this a simple foundation leak issue? What needs to be understood is that a basement wall crack is usually a bigger problem – a problem with the foundation of your house.
If a foundation repair is done, without fully understanding the issues present, you may not be solving the problem. No one likes spending money on a foundation repair, but if your spending money repairing basement wall cracks, get it done right the first time.
Have a qualified professional that is experienced with both structural and water issues related to foundation repair investigate your problem. At Abarent, we have a very informative area on our website that may help you understand the foundation repair world, and assist you in making a decision on which direction to go with for your basement repair project.
