Fundamental approach to stopping the development of cracks in building structures

In this article, we will describe in detail the reasons for the formation and development of cracks in the houses on the walls and foundations of buildings and structures, as well as their strengthening methods in the wall (on the walls, in the walls). Cracks in the walls are a fairly common problem with which owners of private houses and commercial structures are faced. It seems to many that this problem will never be touched by, nevertheless, it may even arise in new homes. Finding even small cracks, for example, during the change of wallpaper or repair, it is worth it to immediately determine the reason for their occurrence. This will prevent the further spread of cracks, which will retain the external and internal plane from destruction.

Methods for sealing cracks in a brick (stone) wall depend on the cause of their occurrence, which must be defined in the first place.If it does not detect the cause and hide cracks using cosmetic repair, then in the future you can face more serious problems that will suffer from large financial waste.To eliminate cracks in the house qualitatively, it is required to perform an object audit and determine the causes of their occurrence.

 

Causes of cracks

The most common cause of cracks in the walls of the house is an uneven shrinkage or a soil shift under the foundation.Such a situation may arise for three reasons:


  • Ошибки при строительстве или расчётах.

  • Нестойкие грунты.

  • Малая глубина фундамента.

A very important role in construction is a primer basis on which the house is erected.Very often in garden partnerships forbade build houses above one floor and do it not in vain, because if there are unstable soils in the territory, the big load will entail their offset, and the building will come to the emergency condition.

To other reasons, cracks can be attributed:


  • Сильный уклон местности.

  • Негативное влияние окружающей среды, а именно грунтовых вод или подземных рек на фундамент.

  • Разрушение фундамента от времени.

  • Использование при строительстве некачественных материалов.

  • Неверный выбор типа фундамента.

It is worth remembering that even when the smallest cracks occur, it is worth producing an object.The fact is that the cracks in the foundation can be invisible to the naked eye, but they are able to bring the building to the emergency.

 

Classic Classic Repair Methods in Walls

Strengthening cracks in brick walls with their own hands (brick, gas-silicate, concrete, butt, carrier) is possible only if there are no problems with the foundation of the building.If they are, it will have to take advantage of the help of specialists not to aggravate the situation.

Cracks in the walls, depending on the cause of their occurrence and size, can be reinforced in various ways:


  • Проведение легкого косметического ремонта используется для маленьких трещин, которые не несут опасности для дома.

  • Перемычки или металлическое армирование используют для больших трещин на монолитных стенах. Для кирпичной кладки данный метод не используется, так как повлечет дальнейшее растрескивание стены.

  • Большие трещины заделывают путем иньектирования специализированных растворов или цементации.

And what will happen if not to strengthen the base, but rely on the distribution of tension on the associated designs?That is, only use fittings or metal designs?

In this case, there is a risk of further development of cracks, since the reason for the appearance of cracks is not eliminated.

In such situations, it is necessary to deal with the presence of water in the ground, since it is its temperature expansion and causes the effect of a sheep.After that, it will be clear what technology to use to solve.

Cracks to strengthen it is worth stopping further destruction of structures, since when forming cracks, the design ceases to be holistic and increases the number of risk factors.

If the cracks appeared, the design has already lost the integrity and will move due to changes in the humidity and temperature regime in the environment, that is, having spent the decorative finish you will eventually see cracks on it.Because if you want to comfortably exploit your object without losing in its cost, it is recommended to solve the problem without tightening.

If you do not bother the presence of cracks, then no.If you do not want to worry about the time dynamics due to temperature and moisture fluctuations, then we recommend that you carry out an additional power strengthening of cracks.

Of course, it is simpler, only this will cause additional harm if it is done outside (since the temperature and humidity regime affects different materials).If this is done inside, it does not aesthetically eaten space, as well as in the long run, it contributes to the further destruction of the structures, since the fasteners will be collapsed due to the difference in the behavior of the outer and fixing structures.

Evgenij Novitskij (inzhener GROUNDTEK) July 28, 2020

No, this is not the same thing.The smelting is a banal cracking of the crack with a decorative layer of finishing material.That is, this is the realization of the goal of "Hide from the eye."The problem remains and at the first humid and climatic fluctuations, it will appear again to your eyes.That is, it is not even a temporary solution, it is a purely psychological trick.The sewing is already an attempt to intervene in the essence of the consequences, but alas without eliminating the cause of the appearance of a crack result will be the same.

And I saw on YouTube how to repair cracks with tiled glue.

Glue tiled it is because it is called tile, which is able to withstand the tile but not more.If the crack in the wall then the hypothetical glue must withstand the whole part of the house design, which broke.Is it capable of this tile glue?

The temperature of the medium should not be lower than +5 degrees Celsius, therefore it is possible to reinforce the design from the inside of the building, but you can only sew the crack of alas only outside.

This unequivocally increases the risks and accumulates the problems that are avalanche-like at a certain point.The fact is that such damage is very rarely developing smoothly and on a little bit.Most often there is a stress accumulation in the designs and then the sharp discharge

Of course, Aropoyas is aligning the burden on the design.If it is not, then the load camshal is incorrect and concentrated in certain places, where the crack will appear

Everything definitely depends on the scale of the problem and the task.However, if you take an average temperature in the hospital, then the mechanical examination takes from 1 to 3 days, and the works themselves from 3 to 5 days, if we are talking about the private sector

Not necessary.It may be that the foundation on the fact is more flexible than the walls on it are erected.It is necessary to conduct a survey and deal with the reasons for what is happening.
