    WHAT CAUSES BASEMENT WALL CRACKS?

    SOIL PRESSURE

    Soil expands and loosens. This shifting can put added pressure on exterior walls, causing them to crack under pressure.

    HUMIDITY

    Humidity hurts wooden frames and joists, especially within older homes. This damage leads to instability that can crack walls.

    SETTLING AND SHIFTING

    Over time, your home will settle and shift. Unfortunately, this settling can create small cracks within your foundation. This is a natural event.
