As you can see, this home’s basement has severe damage. The foundation is cracked in three ways: 

Vertically: these cracks run up and down

Step Cracks: in the second picture, you can see that the crack is following the “steps” in the cinder blocks. This usually means major problems for the home’s foundation – including weakened walls that could crumble or bow-in, water and flooding issues, and dangerous mold growth

Horizontal Cracks: pictured below, these run sideways. The basement wall crack in the picture below is wide, indicating that the walls are beginning to separate.
