Most Common Reasons for Cracks in Your Foundation:
Drought / Shrinkage –
This is when the soil drys out and creates a void next to the foundation allowing water to build up between the foundation and soil causing pressure which can result in a crack.
Structural Problems –
Such as steps, decks, and cement slabs pushing on the foundation.
Just as it sounds. When too much water enters the soil the footings settle causing the walls to crack. Some leading causes may be poor drainage, or bad gutters.
Stress Points –
Anytime a contractor drills through concrete for utilities, cable, plumbing etc… It can cause weak areas in the foundation leading to cracks.
