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 tilting or bowing into the home
  • Chimney looks like it's leaning or pulling away from the home
  • Windows and doors become difficult to open or close
  • Cracks appear in concrete slabs on the basement floor, in the driveway, on porches or patios, and so on
  • Home appears to be noticeably sinking further into the earth on one or more sides of the foundation

Sinking Foundation

A sinking foundation is a common structural problem is often caused from poor soil conditions around a home. When there are voids or gaps in the soil under a home, it will eventually sink into them. This can cause sinking on one or more sides of the foundation. 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. Once installed, they will be able to shift the weight of your home off of the weakened foundation and onto themselves. Eventually, this will help to keep the home stable and supported, permanently.

Bowing Walls

Bowed walls are another problem caused from the soil surrounding a home. The soil surrounding your home will expand and swell whenever it absorbs moisture after a heavy rain fall. This puts a lot of pressure on your foundation walls, known as hydrostatic pressure, and it will eventually prove to be too much. The wall(s) will start to lean into the basement. This problem can be taken care of with the use of wall anchors. Installation for the anchors involves it being installed deep within the earth in stable soils. A plate is attached inside of the home on the damaged wall. The two products will be connected to each other with a strong metal rod, and this rod can be tightened as time passes to provide the needed lateral pressure to push the wall back into place and keep it stable.

Wall Cracks

Cracks in the walls can be caused from the normal shrinking and curing process of concrete. But, sometimes, this problem could also be a warning sign that there is an underlying problem with your home's structure. During a consultation with our team of experts, your home's foundation will be carefully inspected so we can figure out what's causing the issue. The wall cracks will be filled and sealed so that they don't let seepage from the soil inside. Also, if the problem is caused from settlement or a bowing wall, we can install foundation piers or wall anchors, as mentioned above.
