Basement Wall Crack Repair Services in New Jersey & Staten Island, NY

Noticing a Basement Wall Crack? We can help!

Basement or foundation wall cracks can be either a sign of structural foundation problems, or the result of normal shrinkage or settling. Basement cracks can be horizontal, vertical, or stairstep. Hairline or wide and V-shaped. 

Horizontal cracks may be accompanied by bowing walls.

Only an expert can determine whether the wall crack is compromising the structural integrity of your home, and whatever the case, provide the best solutions to fix it. The ability to see the crack and measure the width will allow a trained professional to understand the causes and potential risks.

Monitoring Basement Wall Cracks

Sometimes our inspectors will recommend that a crack monitor be installed to monitor any seasonal changes and wall movements. When we install crack monitors, we will ask you to take a picture of the monitor each month and email these to us for review. If we determine that it is a normal shrinkage crack, we will happily refer you to BasementDepot.com where you can purchase a “do it yourself” crack repair kit if you prefer.

FAQ

How to fix basement wall cracks?

At Scaldino Basement Solutions we fix vertical basement wall cracks, whether they are weeping or just unsightly, using a dual process called CrackShield, designed to stabilize the wall and stop leaks.

Why are my basement walls cracking?

Basement walls usually crack for three reasons. The most common reason in poured concrete walls is concrete shrinkage. This type of crack is usually vertical and thin. The second reason is groundwater saturation of the soil around the foundation, exerting and enormous pressure on the walls, causing horizontal cracks in poured concrete walls and stairstep cracks on block walls. Untreated it can cause the walls to bow inwards or even cave in. The third reason is when the soil underneath your foundation is too weak to support your home or was weakened overtime due to erosion. The cracks in this care are vertical, but usually V-shaped. They often can be accompanied by cracked or sinking basement floors. Bowing walls and ve shaped wall cracks should be inspected by a foundation repair contractor or a structural engineer.

 

Why are my basement walls bowing and how to fix them?

Pressure from an oversaturated soil pushing against the basement wall is usually the cause of bowing basement walls. Alleviating that pressure with proper basement drainage is the best way to stop a wall from bowing.  In more serious cases a bowing wall can be stabilized or strengthened by a foundation repair contractor using wall braces, carbon fiber or wall anchors.
