How do you know if a foundation crack is serious?
To know if a foundation crack is serious, you should look at the direction as well as the size of the crack. Cracks in your foundation that are vertical and diagonal can be quite common and are generally not a huge threat to your home’s structural integrity if they are not large. Horizontal cracks are typically the most dangerous type, especially if they are large. Regardless of the type of crack your home’s foundation has, you should always have a licensed contractor inspect and seal the crack in your home’s foundation.
