Floor Cracks in Oklahoma and NW Arkansas

Floor cracks can be common, but it is important to know when a floor crack indicates a bigger problem. Floor cracks can be a sign of foundation failure. If your concrete floor is showing signs of sinking, sagging, settling, or cracking, it may mean that your foundation is settling. Look for these signs:

The expansive soils in Oklahoma and Arkansas can cause the foundation to shift and move. When the ground is dry do to lack of water, the soil will shrink and when the soil is oversaturated, it will expand. This constant shrinking and expansion causes the ground beneath your foundation to move, thus, causing your foundation to move. That is when floor cracks are a big concern.
