Foundation cracks are more than a cosmetic issue. They can also lead to water damage, which will eventually affect your home’s structure. The cracks need to be identified and treated quickly or they’ll continue to grow, leaving you with costly repairs further down the road. It’s important to recognize the most common signs of water damage so you can contact a professional for further evaluation and foundation crack repair. You’re probably dealing with water damage if you notice:

  • A musty odor
  • Infestation of bugs
  • Squishy drywall and peeling paint
  • Moisture on your walls or floors
