Foundation Cracks Are A Common Problem In Florida
Foundation cracks are common in Florida. So, if you have one (or more), you’re not alone. Let’s take a look at what causes them, and how they can be repaired.
I Have A Foundation Crack. What Should I Do?
The first thing you should do is take an interior and exterior survey of your home. Look for other signs of foundation damage. These include sloped floors, doors and windows that stick, cracks in walls, floors, or ceilings, bowed walls, diagonal cracks at the corners of windows and doors, moldings that are cracked or out of place, stairstep cracks in brickwork, walls that have separated from the ceiling and or the floor, porches or chimneys that have separated from the house, rotated walls, and water intrusion in the basement.
If you notice any of these signs, you should contact an experienced foundation repair contractor right away. They will do an inspection, and if you have a foundation problem, they will offer a solution. Whatever you do, don’t wait. These signs indicate that you could have a serious problem with your foundation, and if you’re in Florida, it could be because of a sinkhole underneath your home.
