Inspect Your Foundation for Cracks

With winter here, it is important to check your foundation for cracks. You don’t want water finding its way in when the snow melts or the rain falls. Basements are the place in your home to start your inspection, this is where foundation cracks are most often found.  You are looking for cracks in the foundation, water damage or signs of water damage or leaking.

It's pretty easy to find foundation cracks. Look for signs of cracking and the spider veins they create. If you find basement cracks, trace them entirely and check for water damage. If you notice water damage, other any other damage it’s time to contact a foundation crack repair company. Even if you notice basement cracks without water damage, it is important to have a specialist come out regardless.
