Brick, mortar, and masonry problems, such as cracking and flaking, can occur in any home.

If you are ready to find out what’s causing your home’s mortar issues, contact Virginia Foundation Solutions today to schedule your free, no-obligation inspection.
Could Your Mortar Damage be a Sign of Foundation Issues?
How Does Foundation Settlement Cause Mortar Damage?
If you notice that your home’s mortar is deteriorating or cracking, this can be due to foundation problems. When soils beneath your home shift and change, your foundation can settle. As your home’s foundation settles, its structure can shift. Your foundation can start to dangle in parts, where the soils below it are failing to support your home. This can lead to parts of your home experiencing added pressure, and this is where the mortar cracks. Although mortar cracks are unsightly, they can be helpful indicators of your home’s foundation problems.
Where to Look for Mortar Cracks
Foundation problems are often indicated by masonry damage. Often, these signs of damage start out small, and get larger as your foundation continues to deteriorate. That’s why it is important to schedule a foundation inspection as soon as you notice any signs of brick or mortar damage. If you are proactive in inspecting your home for mortar deterioration, this can help you to protect your property and save you money in the long run. Mortar cracks most often occur under windows and above doors and windows, so make sure to check these areas regularly. And remember, call Virginia Foundation Solutions immediately for a free, no-obligation inspection if you notice any mortar damage.
Why Choose Virginia Foundation Solutions for Masonry and Foundation Repair?
Did you know that when you hire a foundation or crawlspace repair company, they often do not have their own masonry team on staff? This means that if you want to fix your foundation and repair your home’s mortar, you may have to hire two different repair companies! This not only causes homeowners hassle, but it can also be more costly than hiring just one contractor to complete the entire project. More so, these companies can play the “blame game” if something goes wrong: blaming the other company if your foundation or masonry problems aren’t solved satisfactorily. This leaves homeowners in a tricky situation, as they are not sure who to follow up with to get their home problems resolved.
