Diagonal Cracks Coming from the Corners of Doors or Windows

A diagonal crack coming from the corner of a window or door can be a definite sign of a problem with the foundation. Typically, foundation problems that cause these cracks also cause a few other symptoms, like sloping floors, exterior wall cracks, or basement floor cracks. Checking for these will help start the process of finding and solving the problem.

Are You Noticing Hairline Cracks Coming from Corners of Windows or Doors?

Foundation problems can be caused by waterproofing problems, and vice versa. Take note of any standing water on the perimeter of the home. Surface water that doesn’t drain away from the house can erode the soil and eventually make its way into a basement or crawlspace.

Gutters that are not kept in proper function are also common culprits of water eroding the soil and making its way into basements and crawlspaces.

If signs of water in your basement or crawlspace exist, it is important to call us for a thorough inspection of your foundation. One of our foundation experts will help customize a solution for your unique situation.

Diagonal cracks around windows and doors should not be ignored. Contact your nearest ‘58 Foundations location to see what approved solutions they can provide for your foundation problems.
