Signs of Foundation Cracks

Foundation cracks in your Chattanooga home may go unnoticed initially, but over time, they can silently develop into serious issues, causing visible damage. That is why it is essential to acquaint yourself with common indicators of foundation cracks.

Here are some tips from our team at Basement and Crawlspace Solutions for identifying the early signs of foundation cracks in your Chattanooga home:

  • Uneven floors and doors: If you start noticing floors becoming uneven or doors sticking or not closing properly, there may have been a shift in the foundation.
  • Gaps around window frames: Similar to doors, windows may not open or close smoothly if there has been movement in the foundation. Pay attention to any gaps appearing around the frames.
  • Visible crack in your home's exterior: Take a closer look at the exterior of your home. Cracks in the concrete or bricks, especially around the foundation, can be a warning sign of underlying issues.

Recognizing these signs early can make all the difference in the scope and cost of repairs. If you notice any of these indicators, give our team at Basement and Crawlspace Solutions a call as soon as possible.

Causes of Foundation Cracks

Understanding the causes of foundation cracks is critical in preventing further damage to your Chattanooga home. Many factors can compromise the integrity of your foundation, ranging from climate variations to construction issues. 

Here's a look at some of the most common causes:

  • Soil expansion and contraction: Soil plays a significant role in the health of your home's foundation. Different types of soil expand and contract at varying rates based on their moisture content. For instance, clay-rich soils tend to expand when wet and shrink when dry, causing movement that can lead to cracks in a foundation.
  • Hydrostatic pressure: This is the pressure that builds up in the soil around your home's foundation due to excess water. When there's a high level of water saturation, it increases the hydrostatic pressure exerted on the foundation walls. Over time, this pressure can cause cracks, especially in basements and crawl spaces.
  • Poor construction practices: In some cases, foundation cracks can be traced back to the initial construction of the home. If the foundation was not properly constructed—perhaps due to inadequate reinforcement, poor concrete mix, or rushed curing processes—it could lead to weaknesses that manifest as cracks over time.
  • Environmental changes and extreme weather conditions: Environmental factors also play a significant role in the health of your foundation. Prolonged periods of drought or heavy rainfall, frost heave, and even seismic activity can affect the soil around your home and lead to foundation cracks.
