Foundation crack repair in Arizona, even though often necessary, can have a significant negative impact on your finances. It’s not a do it yourself home improvement job. It doesn’t cost very much money either. However, a foundation crack repair is often an extremely expensive project, particularly because it significantly impacts the value of your home. The problem with many repairs to foundations is the poor quality of workmanship. Unfortunately this poor quality of workmanship often shows through in the finished result. Check out this poor quality workmanship here.

Foundation cracks can often be found in the valleys of the inside wall. These kinds of cracks are called vertical wall cracks. They’re most often caused by soil shifting which in turn causes the vertical wall to move. Horizontal wall cracks are the result of soil moving vertically or laterally (side to side) instead of top to bottom. Many homeowners try to fix vertical wall cracks by placing gravel in the cracks to fill them and then driving in concrete. Unfortunately, this technique does not hold up over time and can actually damage your foundation more. More about foundation repair.

Foundation cracking is another problem that can potentially damage your foundation. Cracks usually show up along a staircase that has had soil pressure build up above it. Soil pressure is the pressure that exists between the top of the staircase and the actual ground level. If the staircase is leaning, it can cause soil pressure to build up under the steps and over the supports for the stairs. When this happens, the concrete steps and supports can eventually crack under the weight of the people using them.

Foundation crack repair in stair step or stem wall repair is often best left to the professionals. Homeowners sometimes try to fix these types of cracks with a temporary solution such as asphalt cracks or siding. Unfortunately, neither of these methods hold up over time and will actually damage your foundation more. Asphalt and siding cracks often cause loose bricks and tiles to break and fall off the walls.

The last type of foundation damage is vertical cracks. Vertical cracks are most commonly caused by soil movement, especially when it moves downward or towards the surface of the soil. This is often the result of improperly poured concrete, silt or water that may have gotten into cracks. A large amount of soil pressure can cause the walls of a house to buckle upward, which can eventually cause foundation damage of vertical cracks. Determining if a wall needs to be repaired or replaced is usually best done by a professional.

Foundation crack stitching repair gilts are the best solutions for all types of foundation damage. Unlike other types of repair, such as basement repair gillies, wall repairs using gills are a fast, effective and affordable way to repair foundation cracks without creating unsightly holes in the walls. Foundation repair gills are made from flexible vinyl material that is injected into the wall cracks. This material provides the foundation with the much needed support to properly cure. Gills will also prevent additional damage to the walls by creating a barrier between them and the surrounding area.
