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 form on walls and along window or door frames
- Walls are leaning or bowing into the home
- Chimney looks like it's tilting 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 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. 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. Foundation piers can quickly be installed, and they don't require much excavation. 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. Whenever it rains or when you have melting snow, the soil will absorb the moisture and swell up. 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.
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 cracks will be sealed over so they don't let seepage into the basement. 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.
