Is your basement cracking up?

Basement cracks are now a  regular occurrence in old and new buildings too. A faulty basement would typically show signs of water seepage through not so apparent cracks and leaks. Some of the most common and probable reasons for house basement cracks and leaks are grading, poor drainage, settling of the soil around the basement area, or groundwater.

In many cases, the damage occurring in the basement comes to light only after a major crack or water leak. Hence, it is vital to regularly inspect the basement area and maintain it, particularly in older buildings.

Types of basement cracks to watch out for:

Basement cracks can be horizontal, vertical or hairline cracks.

  1. Horizontal cracks are formed on the walls that are subjected to a pressure exerting laterally. These cracks occur in the center portion of the wall, and cause considerable structural damage, sometimes causing the wall to bulge or bow.
  2. Vertical cracks, on the other hand, are caused by the shrinking of concrete. The shrinking may have occurred due to settlement happening in the area around the basement or during the curing of the concrete.
  3. Hairline cracks, the third type of crack mentioned above does not pose any threat as a potential structural damage but can still be the cause of water seepage.
