Warning Signs of Foundation Failure
If you notice any of the following, then you need to get in touch with our foundation repair company immediately to schedule a consultation 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 basement environment
- 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 garage, on sidewalks, etc.
- Home appears to be noticeably sinking further into the earth on one or more sides of the 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 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. Eventually, this will help to keep the home stable and supported, permanently.
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 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.
Whenever you see cracks in your foundation walls, it may simply be caused from the natural 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. 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. Also, if the problem is caused from settlement or a bowing wall, we can install foundation piers or wall anchors, as mentioned above.
