Basement & Foundation Cracks :
No matter what type of foundation you may have, it could be prone to cracking and that could make it susceptible to water intrusion. Poured
concrete has improved the quality of basements over the past 60 years. However, poured concrete does have a tendency to crack. Foundation (or basement floor) cracks are perfect avenues for water, soil gases, insects, etc. to make their way in. Because foundation and floor cracks can create a real problem in the basement, it is a good idea to have the cracks professionally sealed.
