Warning Signs of Foundation Failure

Please make sure that you contact our team ASAP if you notice any of the following structural problems in your home:

  • Interior and exterior cracks can be seen on walls and along window or door frames
  • Walls are leaning or bowing into the home
  • Chimney appears to be leaning or pulling away from the home
  • Windows and doors don't open or close like they used to
  • Cracks appear in concrete slabs on the basement floor, in the driveway, on porches or patios, and so on
  • Home appears to be visibly sinking deeper and deeper on one or more sides of the foundation

Foundation Settlement

It is not unusual for homes to have this kind of structural problem, especially when there is poorly backfilled soil. Settling and eroding soil can cause voids to develop beneath the home, and the home's foundation will eventually sink into this space. This can make it look like one or more sides of the home are settling deeper into the earth. To take care of this issue, our team can install foundation piering products - helical and push. We install foundation repair products which have proven time and time again to be effective at taking care of all types of settlement problems. After the piers are installed, they will be able to take the weight of your home off of the weak foundation and place it on themselves. Ultimately, these piers will help to keep the home stable, level, and secure.

Bowed Walls

Bowing walls are commonly seen on all types of homes, both old and new. The soil surrounding your home will expand and swell whenever it absorbs moisture after a heavy rain fall. This will put a lot of pressure on your basement walls, and this pressure is known as hydrostatic pressure. The wall(s) will start to lean into the basement. This problem can be taken care of with the use of wall anchors. The anchor is placed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. A special plate will be installed inside of the home on the effected wall. The two are connected with a steel rod, which can be tightened over time to provide the necessary lateral pressure needed to support the wall and push it back into place.

Wall Cracks

Cracks in the walls can be caused from the normal shrinking and curing process of concrete. However, the problem may also indicate a more severe underlying structural problem. Our techs will quickly be able to pinpoint the cause of the cracks, and then they will come up with an effective repair solution. The wall cracks will be filled and sealed so that they don't let seepage from the soil inside. If the cracks are being caused from settlement or bowing walls, we can also take care of the problem and prevent it from happening in the future by installing piering products and wall anchors.
