CracksIt is normal to have cracks in your walls that happen 2-3 years after
the home has been built. This is called settling and it happens when
the ground starts shifting or drying out under your foundation.
WALL AND FLOOR CRACKS
So how do we determine if the cracks you're seeing in the walls
warrant a foundation repair?
A 1/16-inch crack is quite common when a home starts to settle. It is a fact that all foundations will start to settle over time. You may see small cracks form in your walls, and this is perfectly for any warning signs your home may have.
After inspecting your home, you can then determine whether you need to call in a foundation repair expert or whether you have normal settling. These hairline cracks should be vertical and should be between 2 - 6 inches in length.
Having horizontal cracks of any size will indicate that you have more than the normal settling. Having horizontal cracks or vertical cracks that are larger than 1/16 inch is an indication that you should call in an expert to see if your home needs a foundation repair.
