Cracking Foundation wall Repair In Hillsboro, ORegon
Quality solutions for cracks in basement walls and and concrete floors
Cracking in basement floors and walls typically occur more often in the wide-ranging weather conditions we have in northern Oregon. The thawing and freezing of soils and dirt, combined with dry conditions during the summer lead to hydrostatic pressure, shrinkage and expansion of soil, and movement that has a negative impact on foundations, crawl spaces, and concrete slabs.
Most cracks are minor and most often can be fixed easily and inexpensively. At the same time, however, small hairline cracks have the potential to grow and become more problematic and costly for houses and commercial buildings.
We advise being proactive in asking for help from a certified foundation contractor when you witness cracks forming in your foundation walls and floors. Making fast action may minimize the scope of repairs needed and save you hundreds – if not thousands of dollars.

What causes foundation and crawl space damage?
Our experts have the ability and know-how to restore and stabilize foundation, basement, and crawl space walls of all sizes and materials – including concrete blocks, poured concrete, brick, and stone.
Foundation failing and wear is generally caused by common factors. They include:
- Soil expansion and shrinkage
- Weakened soil
- Improper land grading
- Heavy moisture
- Insufficient backfill
- Soil heaving
Cracks to be most concerned about are diagonal, horizontal, and stair-step cracking. These types have more potential to grow in size over months and years and are expensive to repair.
There are a range of warrantied repair options available for basement wall chipping and cracking. The most effective solution depends on what has caused the crack, foundation make, and condition of soils surrounding your home.
