Addison TX Foundation Repair Specialists
The clay heavy soil in the Addison area is constantly moving. Whether it is contracting due to colder temps or lack of water, or expanding due to excess moisture, these changes take a toll on the concrete slab that forms your foundation.
Expansion joints allow for these anticipated movements, and also offer strategic placement for such cracks to form. This is why it is “normal” to see some amount of cracking as your home settles.
However, if foundation cracks on your exterior walls are larger than the size of a pencil eraser, it’s possible a bigger problem is developing.
Not only is this cause for concern for the longevity (and potential resale) of your home, but it can lead to pest issues, doors/windows that don’t close properly, and much more expensive remedies down the road.
