Navigation Links Highlighting Importance of Foundation Integrity and Extending its Repair Services to Fix Cracked Walls

(PRWEB) June 17, 2013

Waterproofing and foundation repair company, B-Dry, recently revealed the possible signs of danger behind cracked walls. Stressing on the fact that a large section of homeowners simply ignored cracks on the walls, the company is offering helpful information to educate customers. Currently, the company has provided services for over 350,000 customers and is offering its services in over seventy locations across the United States.

A common trend noticed by experts at B-Dry is that homeowners either worried too much about small cracks in the wall or did not pay attention to them at all. The company is recommending a quick inspection of the walls and the foundation to keep repairs to a minimum. B-Dry is stressing on the fact that ignoring cracked walls can lead to unsafe situations, often endangering the inhabitants. Across all seventy locations, the company is advising homeowners to look for wall cracks and seek immediate assistance from the professionals at B-Dry. Providing an easy way to help determine whether homeowners need professional assistance, the company is highlighting the different types of wall cracks and the reasons behind them.

It is common knowledge that concrete shrinks over time and this shrinkage can cause hairline cracks on the wall. These cracks are generally harmless and a surface treatment performed by a professional usually fixes the problem. If the thickness of the crack is less than a fingernail, it is not indicative of any structural or foundation problems and can extend to any direction. B-Dry is advising homeowners to consider the direction of larger cracks, as horizontal ones are more dangerous than vertical cracks. Horizontal cracks are generally caused by pressure exerted by the soil on the walls and are potentially more dangerous.

Homeowners should be aware of large cracks that continue to increase in size over time or form V-shaped cracks on the wall. The company is warning that any cracks wider than 3/16th of an inch could point to serious damages in the foundation structure. The company is suggesting mapping the cracks on the wall to determine the danger posed by it. Sometimes, a cracked wall can be an indication of a damaged foundation, whether due to soil or improper construction. Other telltale signs of structural damage through cracked walls include jammed doors and windows that indicate a physical shift in the foundation.
