How Much Does It Cost to Fix a Crack?

How Much Does It Cost to Fix a Crack? - Image 1


A homeowner in Chino Hills excited to start remodeling her home came across a major problem - her foundation had started sinking. In fact, some areas of her home had dropped more than 2 inches.


The woman had lived in the home for more than two decades. In that time, the interior signs of foundation troubles became more and more obvious. What started as small cracks creeping out from the windows later turned into major gaps in the drywall.


This is an all-too-common problem for homeowners who see signs of foundation issues and watch them grow into larger problems overtime.


How to know when to fix a crack?


Nearly every home “settles” into place in one way or another after it’s built. This can show up in tiny, hairline cracks along some interior walls. You might even hear your home creaking in the night.


These are normal occurrences and not cause for concern - unless the cracks in the walls continue to grow.


This was the case for the homeowner in Chino Hills. She started noticing the drywall cracks 10 years ago.


The growing issues indicate a larger problem, likely with the foundation the home is built on. If you notice any changes in seemingly small issues, that’s a good time to call a foundation specialist.


Who should fix a crack?


There is no DIY fix for a foundation problem – it can be a major safety concern and requires a professional.


A professional foundation repair contractor will examine the crack and take into consideration any other symptoms of foundation issues, like sticking doors and windows or sloping floors.


Not only do they have the professional experience to properly diagnose why a foundation is settling or experiencing issues, they will also know what products to use to fix the problem.


Most often, foundation repair products need to be professionally installed by a team of people with the proper equipment.


How much does it cost to fix a crack?


It might sound like a complicated fix — and it is — but how much is fixing that crack going to cost?


Truthfully, it’s hard to pin down exactly how much it will cost to fix a crack in your wall. A crack is just one symptom of what could be several different issues with the foundation.


Also, the type of foundation you have could also play a role. Foundations range from those with basements to crawl spaces, slab on grade, and the list goes on. Some types of foundation are more common than others in different parts of Southern California.


But, there is one constant that holds true when it comes to foundation fixes: The sooner you address the problem, the less expensive the solution.


It takes less manpower and products to fix a foundation that has dropped by an inch on one corner of the house than waiting until it’s sunk three inches or more before fixing it.


This holds true for virtually all foundation problems. In almost 100 percent of homes, the issues you see only get worse or more noticeable over time.
