Foundation cracks should be addressed immediately before the cracks widen and spread. For small cracks, injecting epoxy may be just enough to fill the crack and prevent water from entering the foundation. However, for large cracks it is important to call on a foundation repair company. These cracks may be a symptom of a larger foundation problem.
Proper Moisture Levels
A foundation must maintain a consistent moisture level to remain strong over the course of time. Gutters and downspouts should direct water away from the foundation instead of directly to it. Installing rock beds 18” – 24” away from the foundation is a good way to make sure water is penetrating the soil around the foundation, but not wetting it directly. Foundation moisture should be monitored during both heavy rains as well as long droughts.
