Cracks in bricks or in the mortar joints are common in many brick homes. But there are some warning signs that could indicate your cracked brick is due to an underlying foundation problem. These include:
- Stair-stepping cracks
- Dropped floors
- Bowing walls
- Interior wall cracks
Another indication of foundation settlement are cracks that widen on one side. If these symptoms seem familiar, call the professionals at LUX Foundation Solutions for your cracked brick repair needs.
