Flow on Effects
When it comes to a crack in your concrete foundation, it’s important to consider the flow on effects of it. Although cracks by themselves aren’t necessarily major damage, and might not seem like something that you need to worry about, they can be a problem. This is primarily because they can allow water to penetrate the concrete surface, which is already porous. This can cause damage as the water freezes and thaw with the change of weather, expanding and retracting. This can cause many serious issues for your foundation, and is why any cracks of significance should be dealt with.
Concrete is also prone to experiencing settling problems and your concrete foundation is no exception to this. Settling can be caused by a few different factors, most notably water washing away the soil underneath your foundation, which causes it to sink. The damage settling problems can cause is what you really need to focus on though, and that’s why getting such a problem corrected is of the utmost importance.
