“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.

It's no surprise that repairing a home's foundation and all that comes with the project would be a stressful, messy and unpredicatable job. Kevin and his team took the time to ensure the job was done well and done right. Kevin communicated with us every step of the way and always told us the truth whether it was good news or not. Personally, feeling secure that someone is being truthful is a big deal for me when dealing in an area that is not my forte. I appreciated his candor.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Their employees were hard working, knowledgeable and courteous. They were so confident that they were going to fix my problem for good, that it left me with no doubt. Although there are many companies doing this type of work, Abarent clearly knows their stuff. Once the job was done, I knew I had made the right choice.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
