Porch cracks


Recommended Posts

We would call that a Craftsman style.

I think the house is older and the porch was rebuilt, with that added section that is not under the roof. Amateurs didn't prep the fill properly and forgot the drainage.

The original crafts-men would have put scuppers in the walls for drainage and the wood floor would have been completely under the roof.

Cracks in your porch don't mean that there are some foundational issues bit there is always a risk that they could be a sign of any more serious damage. you also need to determine whether it is due to some surface imperfections or structural issues. I will suggest the following options:

-An epoxy sealant to repair and protect your porch from further damage.

-A low-pressure crack injection.

-Polyurethane caulking.
