Ceiling Cracks: A Sign of Foundation Damage

ceiling cracks, Foundation Wall Cracks

Have you walked around your home or business and noticed ceiling cracks or that you needed wall crack repair? They may seem like a common problem that can be ignored without consequence, but in reality, the cracks can mean problems with your foundation. Foundation failure can be hard to detect if you do not know what you are looking for.

Ceiling cracks are one of the signs of foundation failure along with a variety of other foundation problems such as:

  • Leaning chimney
  • Bowing walls
  • Sinking foundation
  • Sticking doors

These small problems may not seem important, but do not ignore them.

“Small problems” can be signs of underlying issues.

Usually, these problems are caused by the foundation of your home or business sinking, settling, or breaking down. The process may be a long one, but if you ignore these problems they will only get worse and repairs will only get more time consuming, complex, and expensive. By catching foundation failure early and getting repairs, you can rest easy knowing that your home or business will be safe for anyone who steps inside.

You can be assured that your wallet will take less of a hit if you catch the issue early. The longer that you wait on foundation issues, usually the more the cost goes up for repair because they have become so extensive.
