Poured Concrete Foundation Crack Repair

Cracks in poured concrete foundations walls, although not uncommon can cause headaches for property owners. Leaks are not only inconvenient, but continued moisture can decrease indoor air quality and allow for the growth of mold and mildew. Not addressing these leaks properly could result in continued clean up or additional expenses.
 Rarely are cracks a structural threat or problem, generally the biggest issue is water penetration. Cracks occur for a few different reasons:
 
- Thermal Expansion and Contraction
- Settling and Shrinkage
- Physical Force
Most cracks occur within the first 60 days of pouring the foundation.
