With our hot summers in New Orleans, Louisiana, cracking in foundation walls and floors is actually quite common – especially for homes that were built 10+ years ago.
Small hairline cracks, in most cases, aren’t any cause for alarm. These types of minor cracks are usually caused by the natural process of concrete curing.
Larger cracking in your walls or foundation are much more cause for concern though. They are usually a result of foundation settlement and nearby soils contracting and expanding against your basement walls. Cracks caused by settling and soil mostly run vertical or horizontal and diagonal (think stair step cracks between blocks or bricks).
Significant cracking should be repaired by a licensed, insured, and certified foundation technician in order to stabilize your structure and prevent further damage from happening.
Our foundation professionals in New Orleans will deliver long-term, warrantied help that fully takes care of your cracks and protects your foundation for years to come. Our estimates are 100% free and accurate, and come with a detailed repair plan if needed.
