Foundation and wedge problems are not always signs of a serious issue. Be sure to schedule a free foundation evaluation after you notice cracks in foundation corners and wedges to check for any other foundation issues that there may be.
Alone, corner wedge cracks are considered a superficial issue and can be easily repaired if you wish to renew the foundation’s original aesthetic. Structural integrity is not compromised due to wedge cracks and is an issue your foundation can withstand.
Wedge Cracks Can Be A Simple Superficial Problem
Here is an apparent sign of a foundation problem that is only a superficial foundation problem.
In the photo, you can see that the corner of the foundation has broken away. This wedge-shaped failure is common to foundations in Dallas and Fort Worth. The wedge breaks away due to the weight of the brick above it. This is a purely cosmetic foundation problem. There is no cause for concern. If this is the only sign of a foundation problem, the foundation is not failing.
Foundation and wedge problems can be more serious if there are other factors at play so a reliable foundation evaluation should be scheduled to rule out any possible structural damage. To schedule a free foundation evaluation, call us today. Granite Foundation Repair – Dallas/Fort Worth
