Types of Foundation Cracks

Foundation cracks in commercial buildings can range from minor aesthetic issues to significant ones. Two common types of foundation fractures in commercial buildings are vertical and horizontal cracks:

Vertical Cracks

Vertical foundation cracks are a common issue that can occur when a foundation settles unevenly. These cracks may appear wider at the top or bottom, and it’s important to have them inspected by a professional foundation repair company like RCS Membrane.

Horizontal Cracks

Horizontal cracks in the foundation are a serious type of fracture that can be caused by foundation problems, indicating that the structure can no longer support the pressure of the supporting structure. These cracks are typically found in localized support failure, which is a region smaller than the total foundation. In addition to foundation problems, plumbing problems can also cause horizontal cracks. In multi-story structures, horizontal cracks tend to become larger as they move higher up.

In order to prevent cracking, architects and designers of new buildings may use strategies such as incorporating movement joints and selecting materials that can endure movement. If you have an existing structure that has developed foundation cracks, contact the experienced team at RCS Membrane as soon as possible to address the issue.
