Causes of Vertical and Horizontal Foundation Cracks

Schedule A Free Inspection

Cracks that move vertically are caused by sinking, settling, or sagging foundation problems. Settling issues arise when the soil under your house shifts or moves. Usually only one part of your home will sag into the changed soil, so cracks in your foundation occur.

Horizontal crack movement occurs when walls bow, lean, or get pushed-in by the surrounding soil. When the soil outside expands, walls tend to move inward. AquaGuard has solutions to all of these problems. We not only want your house to stay standing, but we want it to stay standing up straight!
