Foundation Crack Repair in Massachusetts

foundation waterproofing cambridge county maAs a homeowner, you should inspect both the interior and exterior foundation walls of your property every year, looking for any damage.

If damage is observed during the inspection or you see a crack in the foundation, a note of the type and size of the damage should be made.
More frequent inspections should then be performed to see if there is any change in the crack, such as shifting. In addition, if a crack is found and it looks like it has been repaired a few times, this could be a sign of a more serious issue.

Look for these warning signs to determine if there is an issue with your foundation.

  • Doors Won’t Close
  • Ground is Sinking or Floors are Uneven
  • Displaced Moldings
  • Gaps Between Windows & Caulking
  • Patio Drifting Away from Foundation
  • Mortar Joints Shifting in Bricks
  • Cracked Walls
  • Cracks on Interior Drywall or Exterior Siding

Repair of a foundation crack or other damage should not be put off or ignored. If left untreated, these damages could allow moisture and animals into the house. If left untreated for years, this could actually lead to serious foundation problems including structural collapse that can be very expensive.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a crack in my wall, do I need to get it repaired?

There are several types of cracks and each telling a different story. Many cracks form due to the freeze/thaw cycle homes experience through the seasons. This means that no matter how small it is now it will most likely continue to grow over time. How large, location, difference in size from one end to the other all play into the severity of the crack. Whether it’s a horizontal, vertical or step crack it can be repaired but it’s the extent that it has been allowed to grow that dictates the options and cost. Avoid paying more in the future, stop the crack while it is still easily managed now.

Could I just shoot some caulk into the crack to fix it?

Most cracks result from some form of movement. The caulk most home improvement stores carry will not handle the shifts over time. If there is water coming into the crack it will always push off any simple caulk fix in a short amount of time.

My wall seems to be bowing. Can this be fixed?

Most all foundations can be repaired if addressed early. We have the trained inspectors who can assess the level of bowing and identify a remedy to address your specific problem. You want to work with a team like Value Dry who have multiple options and will take into account how you use the space or plan to use it, not just how to solve the current issue.
