Wall Crack Repair

With our non-invasive wall crack repair solutions, no wall gets knocked down or dismantled. Ever.

Why repairing wall cracks structurally is essential for your home?

Sometimes, wall cracks you see in your home are cosmetic blemishes. At other times, they’re an indicator of deeper structural problems. These kinds of wall crack exhibit themselves in unique ways.

In most cases, a wall crack repair solution is required when these types of cracks appear:

Common types of Structural Wall Cracks

Settlement cracks

Settlement cracks often occur in homes due to the settling of the building’s foundation over time. Factors such as poorly compacted fill, ground movement, changes in moisture levels and temperature variations in clay soils can cause the foundation to shift, leading to cracks. These are commonly first seen above doorways or windows. It’s essential to repair these cracks to maintain your home’s structural integrity and aesthetics.

Expansion cracks

Expansion cracks in walls are a common issue in newer homes, especially with hard-pressed clay bricks, which can expand over time. As these bricks grow, they exert lateral force on the structure, pushing against the ends of walls. This force often leads to cracks appearing, especially at the corners of homes. Not only do these cracks affect the appearance, but they can also compromise the stability of the walls, making timely repair crucial.

Subsidence cracks

Subsidence cracks in walls, typically appearing as stepped patterns in brickwork, are a key focus in wall crack repair. These cracks arise from ground movement under the building, causing uneven settling and structural shifts. Such subsidence can lead to significant structural damage if not addressed promptly. Stepped cracks are a clear indication of this issue and require expert assessment and wall crack repair to ensure the safety and integrity of the structure.

Understanding the causes of wall cracks and timely repair is crucial for maintaining the integrity and safety of your home. Each crack tells its own story, whether due to settling, expansion or subsidence issues.

Addressing cracks promptly around your home ensures they don’t lead to more significant problems and higher repair costs down the line.

Repairing wall cracks is crucial to maintain the structural integrity of a building. Cracks can indicate deeper foundation issues, and if left unaddressed, they may lead to water infiltration, reduced property value and potentially unsafe living conditions.
There are several types of wall cracks, such as hairline cracks, which are common and often cosmetic, and more serious ones like diagonal or stair-step cracks, which could signal structural issues requiring immediate attention.
The HelicalBar™ solution involves installing a helical stainless-steel bar into the mortar joints of a brick wall to stitch and reinforce the area, providing a long-term, non-disruptive repair for cracked walls.
Unlike some methods that require extensive reconstruction, HelicalBar™ is designed to be minimally invasive. It reinforces the wall without the need for major deconstruction, which is more cost-effective and less disruptive.
It depends on the insurance policy and the cause of the cracks. Damage resulting from certain events like natural disasters may be covered, but it’s best to check with your insurance provider for specifics.
