Type of Foundation Crack
Vertical and diagonal cracks are usually due to settling of the foundation or Construction tension. These types of foundation cracks are common and not cause for worry. Horizontal cracks, however, can be indicative of soil pressure and should be looked into further. Stair step cracking is also a sign of poor construction practices.
Common Problems with Foundations
Another issue that should be monitored is soil movement or shifting. This happens when there isn’t enough support for the foundation and it begins to sink into the ground. This can cause significant damage to walls and floors, as well as create gaps between window frames or doors that won’t close properly.

Preventative maintenance is an essential part of avoiding foundation damage. Watch for nearby trees and their roots. Observe the water level if there is any pool lasting for a long period of time. Taking preventative action now is always preferable to waiting until you have a problem with your foundation.
It’s worth taking some time now to make sure that your home’s foundation stays strong and healthy for years to come.
