Detecting Structural Foundation Cracks in Old Bridge, New Brunswick & Nearby

Concrete is made of cement, gravel and water. When the water starts to evaporate, the remaining ingredients then harden into a solid slab of concrete. Unfortunately, this portion of the process can cause the concrete to shrink a little bit, and this results in hairline cracks in the slab. While this kind of crack doesn’t threaten the structural integrity of the house, it does provide an opening for groundwater, insects and even radon gas to pass through.

There are however some types of cracks that indicate some structural issues. These types of cracks usually happen because the wet soil around your foundation pushes against your basement walls or because erosion weakened the soil underneath your foundation. These types of cracks, once detected neef to be inspected and fixed as soon as possible. The more you wait the bigger the problem will become, and the more expensive and difficult to solve.
