The foundation of a house is one of the most important parts of the home. When the foundation starts to settle and move, it can cause cracks. While one crack may not seem like a huge issue, allowing a cracked foundation to sit and continue to crack can cause tons of problems later on down the road.
When dealing with cracks in the foundation, it is important to deal with both cracks on the inside of the home as well as those that are on the outside. First, you should use expanding foam filler to fill the interior of the crack.
The expanding foam should not come outside of the crack. You will then need to chip away a little at the crack to make room for fresh mortar. The mortar is then mixed and added and allowed to dry.
By spot filling cracks and taking foundation repair seriously, you can prevent further damage, you can ensure that your home is on a sturdy foundation, and you can also ensure that the cracks are not going to get any worse. Filling cracks is going to help make the foundation of the home is safe and sturdy and that there are not going to be any further issues in the future.
