How do I know my concrete foundation is cracked?
You may well notice cracking in your concrete as soon as it appears. However, cracks can sometimes go unnoticed, in which case you may spot the early signs of structural damage first. These might include floors which are tilted or sagging, cracks in the walls of the building, damp and mold, or water pooling around the foundation slab.

Why has my concrete slab foundation cracked?
Concrete slab foundations may crack for a number of reasons. Sometimes there was a problem with the quality of the foundation in the first place. Poor installation can make it far more likely that the foundation suffers early damage. Or, the foundation may crack due to moisture and water getting in and expanding, causing cracks to appear and get larger. Shifts in the soil under the slab can also result in cracking. No matter why the crack has appeared, it’s important to deal with it fast. Call Foundation Repair & Waterproofing in Springfield, MO today.
