  • Vertical Corner Cracks:

    When the soil around your foundation is dehydrated and shrinking, it can cause cracks to form in the corners of the walls.
  • Compaction:

    If the foundation is sinking or settling, it can cause the bricks to compact down on each other and create cracks and voids.
  • Bulging Brick & Masonry Walls:

    The walls may begin to bulge if the shelf angle is corroded. Another reason for bulging can be attributed to excess rainwater pooling around your home and oversaturating the ground.
