How to Fix a Brick Foundation 2


Having problems with your brick foundation?

Noticing cracks, holes, or leaking?

 

Brick foundations are tricky… They are prized for their durability. They’re fire resistant. But, when they start to go bad, the situation can spiral out of control quickly.

Once cracks start to take root in your brick foundation walls, they can spread fast.

 

How Do You Fix the Problem?

 

Please know that this is not a Do-It-Yourself job. Your foundation literally supports the weight of your home. You need a professional who specializes in brick style foundations to fix the problems.

 

Unfortunately, there are a lot of “DIY” sites that lead you to believe that fixing the problem is as simple as scraping away some mortar and resetting the bricks.

This can destroy your home…not only does it not work, but it will do absolutely nothing to fix the cause of the problem. And, it will make the situation worse.

 

First, you will need to identify the type of cracks that you have before any type of repair can be attempted:

Each type of crack will have a different remedy. And, each type will have different causes. The ability to properly diagnose both are key to fixing the foundation.

 

Also, brick is more dependent on the ground under the home than any other type of foundation. This is another reason why fixing any cracks is not a DIY job. The solution may involve digging under the home, which is dangerous.
