COMMON CAUSES FOR CRACKS IN FOUNDATION AND HOW TO FIX THEM
Foundation damage can be a problem for many Barrie homes. Shifting soils can cause cracks in your brick, cracks in interior walls, gaps around doors and windows, and more. If you are building a new home, do ensure that it has a solid foundation.
Expansive soils and fluctuating moisture levels are usually to blame for foundation failure. Excessive water in the soil causes it to swell. Alternatively, too little water causes the soil to shrink. In both of these scenarios, the soil under the foundation will move by shrinking or swelling if the moisture is not uniform, causing the foundation to crack or settle.
Too much moisture may come from sources such as plumbing leaks, improper drainage of rainwater or other surface water, and a high-water table. Soil can lose moisture from prolonged drought, especially around the house’s perimeter where it dries out more quickly.
In many homes, poor pre-construction may be the cause. During the pre-construction phase, the soil must be properly compacted before contractors lay the foundation. If the builder does not give careful attention to the soil layers under the foundation so they can provide stability to the structure, then the foundation may shift as the soil settles under the heavy load of a house.
