Foundation wall cracks pose several questions:
Q - Why do foundation walls crack
A - Because concrete shrinks as it cures during the hydration process, small cracks can develop. That is why you see
cracks in sidewalks, driveways, and highways. They can also develop due to slight movement of the foundation.
Q - How do foundation wall cracks form
A - Most cracks are "V" shaped, as they are about the width of a credit card at the top, and get smaller as they go
down the wall. While the majority of cracks extend from the sill plate at the top of the wall to the floor, many stop
before they reach the floor.
Q - Where do foundation wall cracks form
A - Many cracks develop at the corner of windows, from an I-beam, or in the center of a long wall. It is not unusual
for them to intersect a water, gas, or sewer line penetration.
Q -Is the warranty transferable?
A -Yes. There is no annual fee, no need to notify us of an ownership change, or pay a transfer fee. We track all jobs through the address and not the owner' name.
