Types of Foundation Repair
If you’ve noticed cracks in your foundation and are wondering what your repair options are, you should know that your soil type, climate, and foundation build determine which type of foundation repair is most appropriate. In general, non-structural cracks in foundations are often vertical or diagonal and are caused by the expansion and contraction of the foundation’s concrete. Structural cracks are horizontal and caused by settling soil. Structural cracks are usually serious and may warrant further investigation.
