Cracks in your home, whether they’re on the walls, ceilings, or floors, are a cause for concern. As homes age, they suffer from the wear and tear of time and weather, which means you as the homeowner will have to keep a close eye out for damage to avoid costly repairs. Continue reading below to learn not only what causes these cracks, but when they should be fixed and how to fix them.
As stated before, there are many natural causes for cracks in your home. Heavy rainstorms can oversaturate the soils, causing hydrostatic pressure to overload the walls of your home. Soils can also become too dry, resulting in your home shifting and settling with the dry soil. Additionally, poor pre-construction preparations can wreak havoc on a home as time goes on, due to improper grading or appropriate weight being distributed onto joints.
Cracks are a common occurrence in homes, especially as they age, but you should not ignore them. If cracks are wider than 1/8 of an inch, you should consider contacting a professional for an evaluation of your home. The wider the cracks get, the more unstable your home becomes. You don’t want to risk your safety on the off chance that your home is okay.
