Typicly basements have a poured concrete slab as the as the basement floor. The slab will sometime crack and separate. There are several reasons for this, but thank the heavens many can be avoided with proper planning and preparation. Settling The cracking is often the result of the concrete slab settling. This occurs as the weight of the slab causes the ground beneath it to be more compressed. If one section of the basement floor settles farther or faster than another, the result will often be a crack in the concrete floor. Water problems Acting in much the same way as settling, too much water beneath the slab can cause it to be uneven by erosion. When the tension from the uneven distribution of weight becomes too severe, cracking and breakage will take happen. Thickness
