Causes of Floor Cracks
There are a couple of reasons that you may have cracks in your floor. The foundation of your home could be settling or sinking. At the time of construction, poor methods or shortcuts may have been taken. Trees and shrubs have roots that may grow under the home, pushing against the foundation. Lastly, water pressure can cause issues and lead to floor cracks.
A floor crack is a strong sign of foundation problems and you may have something even bigger going on behind the scenes. Don’t let a floor crack go unrepaired, leading to larger and more expensive repairs.
