Did you know that foundation cracks most commonly appear in early spring? Concrete is a porous material and when water seeps inside and freezes during the winter, it expands. In the spring when it melts, it contracts. This cycle is puts an immense amount of stress and pressure on concrete slabs such as your home’s foundation. Over time, your concrete slab will not be able to handle the stress and begin to crack. You may not even notice it at first since the cracks will likely be small. Over months and years the cracks will grow larger, allowing water to leak into your basement and possibly even let pests in, as well. On top of that, cracks weaken your foundation.
At the most extreme end of the spectrum, left alone these cracks will cause your foundation walls to lose support and buckle under the weight of the house above. That is an expensive and time consuming mess to clean up.
