Foundation Crack Repair
Edmonton’s Best Foundation Crack Repair Team
It’s common for hairline cracks to develop within the first few years after the home’s construction, however cracks larger than a ¼ of an inch in your foundation, floors, walls, brick siding, fireplaces, or chimneys can indicate serious issues. While cracks can always be filled or addressed with house leveling, the underlying factors need to be dealt with first. The direction of the crack matters:
- Vertical cracks are often less severe than horizontal ones because they run along the same direction as wall building materials.
- Horizontal cracks can indicate that the entire house foundation perimeter is experiencing an extreme amount of pressure.
Knowing what signs to look for can help you save money and save your home from further unnecessary damage.

Older structures in Edmonton have particularly unique problems when it comes to foundation repair. The key point of interest being the age of the structure and how the stress and activity of movement may affect other aspects of the building.
We’re seeing a lot of problems with wood framed apartment buildings built on top of parkades experiencing water intrusion on main floor suites at the base of the interior wall. This is typically the result of the original waterproofing membrane failing. If left unattended, it can result in an unhealthy living environment for tenants and sometimes even structural damage. Shield Foundation Repair, your locally owned and operated foundation specialist in Edmonton, is highly experienced in dealing with this sort of problem.
