Contact our professional team at Basement Masters Waterproofing. We provide wall crack inspections and wall crack repairs to homes throughout Northern VA and Southern MD.

What Causes Foundation Cracks?

Wall cracks can be a sign of a serious foundation issue, and unfortunately, it can happen to homes of any size and age. In some cases, your wall crack may be just that – a small cosmetic crack in the wall. In other cases, though, it can be a sign that something much more serious is going on. Common causes of wall cracks include:

  • Foundation settlement
  • Hydrostatic pressure
  • Poor or no water drainage system
  • Expanding soil
  • Poor construction

When our team comes to your home for an inspection, we don’t just cover up the crack and hope it doesn’t happen again. Our team has extensive knowledge of what causes wall cracks and will uncover the problem. We always provide a solution to ensure you are safe for years to come.
