When foundations move vertically or laterally, almost always cracks in the foundation appear.  This happens because the materials used to build your foundation are not designed to flex under pressure.  Foundation cracks are generally a symptom of larger problem. Where the cracking is located and the angles of the cracks give our inspectors one piece of the puzzle to what is occurring at the property.  When foundation cracks are not addressed properly, the issue usually translates to the upper levels of the structure causing the drywall to crack and windows and doors to not open and shut properly. However, in some cases these cracks are not a problem at all and should just be monitored. That is why it is important to get one of our professional inspectors to analyze your foundation cracks and give recommendations.
