It can be difficult to determine the severity of cracks in poured concrete slabs. These types of cracks are most likely found in basements. Although concrete cracks are very common in homes, some cracks can indicate foundation settlement problems. Not only can it indicate a foundation structural issue, but this can also be a point of entrance for unwanted things like moisture and pests.

Some cracks can be insignificant, like smalls cracks due to concrete curing. Although some cracks can be deemed unimportant, most cracks can still allow water seepage and potential health risks like mold and mildew to enter your home. Some more significant cracks can be caused by slabs expanding and foundation shifting due to change in moisture content. The best way to determine the cause of your concrete slab cracks is to hire a professional to inspect the crack and see if there is a hidden reason.
