Cracked or Uneven Concrete Floors in Your Pottstown PA Area Home?
Don’t let a broken floor become a huge liability issue! Broken or cracked floors cause a huge tripping and falling problem. And, they are often a sign that there is a deeper issue with the structure of your home.
Why Your Basement or Patio Floor Breaks
You might be seeing small cracks in the floor of your basement, especially coming from the corners of the room or near the drains. You can see similar damage in your patio floor, especially after rain storms.
- The most common reason that concrete cracks is shrinkage.
- When your basement or patio floor was poured, it was wet and thus full of water. The water makes the concrete bigger than it is once it dries. As it dries out, it shrinks and causes cracking (concrete is not very flexible)
- In the Pottstown area, these problems are common because most of the homes here are built on hard, dense clay soils that have absolutely terrible drainage.
Combine this with the expansion and contraction of the soil under your home (caused by water from rain, snow, and irrigation that mixes with your soil and causes it to expand, putting more pressure on the floor from underneath) …and you have a recipe for some big time cracking and damage.
These cracks can become severe, leading to a tripping hazard and structural damage to your home.
