Although drywall cracks don’t automatically mean there are structural issues within a property, they tend to be the first sign that you notice. Drywall cracks can indicate something as minor as humidity changes or as major as significant foundation settlement. They tend to expand among the weakest parts of your wall. If you notice a crack expanding over time, that’s a warning sign to bring in the professionals. Contact us today to learn more about our drywall crack repair services.
Although drywall cracks are very common in both new construction and old, they can mean various things and it can be hard to determine the severity of them. From something cosmetic to foundation issues, it’s important to pay close attention to your wall cracks. If you have cracks in your home that are larger than 1/8 an inch, this can be considered a red flag. Larger cracks can be an indication of structural issues. If you are unsure if a crack needs to be addressed, bring in the professionals. Cracks can worsen, resulting in a more costly repair down the road.
Do I Need to Fix This?
It can be extremely difficult to determine the cause of your drywall crack. That’s why it’s important to hire an experienced professional to evaluate the situation.

If you notice a crack growing, it’s time to hire a technician to determine if the foundation needs to be stabilized or restored.
