What Causes Shearing Walls?

A structural fracture caused by strain is referred to as "shear." It occurs when hydrostatic (water) pressure in the earth exerts force on a concrete block basement wall. The blocks are pushed inwards by the pressure. The bottom block, on the other hand, is frequently inserted in the concrete flooring. As a result, it can't move as much as the bricks above it.

When one block refuses to move while the others do, the pressure between the bottom block and the one above it fractures the mortar connection. Part of the wall hangs over the bottom block as a result of this. It also causes apparent water damage and stair-step cracks.

  • Stepped cracks along the brick mortar joints of the wall
  • Horizontal cracks on the wall
  • Rust marks on the external face of a wall
  • Gaps Between your Walls and Door Frames
