Spreading cracks are a sign of damage and instability in whatever surface you find them. Cracked floor slabs could be just the beginning of more extensive issues. Much of the slab surface is covered with flooring or underground, making it difficult to know what is going on beneath the surface and out of sight.
If the underlying issues are structural, they will only worsen over time, even if the cracks are stable. Structural problems are notorious for developing and spreading in unpredictable and alarming ways.
It can be difficult to see signs of cracking and damage unless you are lifting or replacing the flooring over the slabs. Therefore, it is important to check your concrete floor slabs properly whenever you get the chance.
Other signs there might be an issue include:
Uneven sidewalks, driveways or floors.
Gaps forming between the floor and the walls indicate that your flooring is sinking or sagging.
Pools of water or patches of dampness. If it is coming from cracks in your floor slab it could be the cracks going through the slab and into the foundation of the property.
Sinking and cracked floor slabs can be lifted, set, and repaired with the right tools and skills. In most cases, professionals will recommend the helical pier system. This is the go-to solution as it provides your home with permanent stability and structural integrity,
Helical piers lift, set, and hold damaged slabs in place by transferring their weight to competent, load-bearing soil below the frost line. This solution gives stability and peace of mind.
