What Causes Foundation Floors to Crack?
Foundation floor cracks typically appear when the concrete floor settles. Weak soils below the concrete almost always cause floor slab settlement. When soil cannot support the floor weight, it will begin to sink and crack. Learn more about the three common types of soil conditions that lead to foundation floor settlement below.
Dry, Shrinking Soils
When a contractor builds a home, they may install components of the HVAC (Heating, Venting, and Air Conditioning) system beneath the floor slab. As time goes on, the ductwork may leak air, causing the soil to dry out.
The drying soil then begins to shrink, creating gaps and voids under the floor slab. These voids hinder the soil's ability to adequately support the slab, which causes the floor to crack and sink.
Plumbing leaks typically cause the soil below the slab to wash away. If the leak is severe and there is a path for the water to flow through, it can wash out the soil under the floor slab. The resulting voids in the supporting soils will eventually cause the concrete slab to crack and sink downwards.
Poorly Compacted Fill Soils
When a contractor builds a home, soil layers are usually moved around or spread out to create the desired grade level. Foundation footings are deepened to extend below weak fill soils and avoid foundation settlement problems. However, the foundation slab remains on the poorly compacted fill soils. Eventually, the soil will compress and settle, creating a void below the concrete slab. As time goes on, the slab begins to settle into the void, creating floor cracks and breaks in the foundation.
