Types of Concrete Cracks
Different concrete cracks indicate different problems, and each type of crack can be considered to be a signature. Some cracks are more serious than others and need to be investigated.
1. Settlement Cracks
These cracks occur when a house is settling onto its foundation. Small settlement cracks usually appear where the wall meets the ceiling. They are not uncommon but should be repaired.
Settlement cracks are a problem when they are large as they can indicate structural problems.
2. Shrinkage Cracks
These cracks are caused by too much water being added to the concrete when it was being mixed, rapid curing, or a change in the moisture of the concrete. They are diagonal or vertical and have a consistent width the entire length of the crack.
Concrete shrinkage causes the concrete to develop internal stresses, so at the first sign of these cracks, call Vesta Foundation Solutions for expert concrete repair in Dallas.
3. Horizontal Cracks
Horizontal cracks in the center of the wall are serious and need to be inspected immediately. They are caused by excessive pressure outside from water or soil movement. The cracks reveal that your foundation's integrity is compromised, and this can cause extensive damage to your home.
4. Expansion Concrete Cracks
Concrete expands when it is heated, and it pushes up against anything around it. As concrete cannot bend or flex, it cracks, forming a significant safety hazard. Vesta Foundation Solutions of Texas provides expert concrete repair in the Dallas area.
