What causes my basement wall to crack and buckle?

Cracking of your basement wall can be caused by a number of factors. Vertical, horizontal and stair step cracks are common in basement walls. The type of cracking pattern in the wall can give the inspector an indication of the cause. Hydrostatic pressure, uneven settlement and improper backfilling during construction can possibly cause cracking in your basement wall.

What are some of the indications that my home might be settling?

  • Foundation walls that are buckled or bowed.
  • Doors or windows that don’t open properly.
  • Cracks in foundation walls.
  • Cracks in exterior walls.
  • Cracks in interior walls or ceilings.
  • Sunken or buckled interior floors.
