Why Does This Happen?
Floor cracks can happen for a number of different reasons. When the building first settles, the floor can shift and crack a little. Concrete also shrinks a little when it is curing, and this can cause small cracks, especially around windows and doors, but also on floors too.
Another major cause, is when excess water finds its way into the concrete and weakens the surface. This can happen for a number of different reasons. Water may be pooling against your home, or could be finding its way in due to inadequate drainage or a lack of interior or exterior waterproofing.
If the floor crack was due to a leaky basement, we can find out exactly where the water is coming in, and tackle the problem at the source, so that it never happens again. A combination of superior drainage and top quality interior and exterior waterproofing solutions provide the perfect way to keep your basement warm and dry.
