Here in the Asheville area, our team at Dry Foundation Technologies offers solutions for cracked basement walls.
Cracked basement walls are common, but they are also a sign of a more serious problem. It is especially worrisome when the cracks spread, move, or widen. When water seeps into the basement through a leak, flood, or excessive moisture in the air, it can cause the drywall to expand and separate. This leads to cracks and puts the structural integrity of your home at risk. When you have cracked basement walls, you might be tempted to try to patch them, but without fixing the problem that’s causing the excess moisture, you will continue to see more cracks.
Here in the Asheville, North Carolina area, our team at Dry Foundation Technologies offers solutions for cracked basement walls. We can assess the condition of your home’s foundation to make sure it isn’t damaged. If it does have damage, the water often seeps up through the broken foundation, causing damage to the flooring and seeping up to the drywall. Our team members can perform foundation repair to prevent more damage from occurring over time. Since the basement sits beneath the ground, it’s more likely to have moisture settle here after a flood.
Leaving the cracked basement walls without bringing in an expert for a full assessment can put your family at risk, since the walls or ceiling could cave in without proper repair. You may also notice that the floor begins to sink or feel mushy when you walk on it, which will be more difficult to fix. Give us a call to talk to our experienced team about cracked basement walls at your home.
