Foundation Wall Cracks

If left untreated, foundation wall cracks will only grow larger over time as external pressure in the soil around the foundation builds. One crack will eventually lead to another and so on until the integrity of your structure is completely compromised. This is especially true with cracks in cinder block wall foundations. As cracks worsen, they can also become passageways for water and pests to enter resulting in flooding and infestations.

Horizontal Wall Cracks

One of the most common types of foundation wall cracks is a horizontal crack. When soil pressure builds against the outside of a foundation wall, the inward force can result in horizontal wall cracks. These types of cracks can turn into a devastating problem, leading to complete failure of the foundation walls.
