Your home is a place of rest and relaxation – a refuge from the stress and chaos of the rest of the world.

Adams Foundation Repair has the experience and equipment that you are looking for.
What Causes Cracks in Basement Walls?
Your home’s foundation is supported by the soil underneath the footings. If that soil was not properly compacted at the time of construction or if the soil’s moisture level has drastically changed, the soil may expand or contract, causing the foundation and basement walls to crack. Excess moisture due to flooding or extensive rainfall can cause soils to expand or become washed out whereas drought conditions can cause soils to shrink and contract away from the foundation. In either case, changing soil conditions can seriously damage your home’s foundation and basement walls, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for any changing weather conditions around your home.
Do I Need to Fix This?
Cracks in basement walls are often a sign of more severe foundation problems. If the cracks are expanding or greater than a half-inch across, you should have a trained professional check for underlying problems. Those underlying problems can lead to flooding in the basement, stuck windows and doors, or weakened structural integrity for homes.
