Vertical Footing Cracks? – Foundation Repair Tip Of The Day #43

Have you ever seen vertical cracks in a home or buildings footing?

In our previous videos we spoke about the most common types of concrete cracks we see here in Southern California. In today’s #FoundationRepair #TipOfTheDay Brian discusses vertical footing cracks and why we see them so often in our area. They often occur when a house or building has experienced differential movement, meaning one area or corner of the structure has settled while the rest of the structure hasn’t. The crack is the weak point in the concrete and acts as a relief point. You’ll typically need to address the incompetent soils in order to ensure these cracks don’t appear over and over and over again.
