20 Common Household Problems That Can Turn into Nightmares » Foundation Cracks

Foundation Cracks

A horizontal crack in the foundation wall, usually running the length of the basement, is not a good sign. The foundation walls are supposed to be built to be strong enough but the cracks are a sign that the foundation is beginning to fall or buckle under the weight of the surrounding soil. You should take action to repair the crack at the very first sign of a horizontal crack or it will continue to get worse and cause even more problems.
