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 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 garage, on sidewalks, etc.
- Home appears to be noticeably sinking further into the earth on one or more sides of the foundation
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. The problem can easily be taken care of with the use of helical and push piers. 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 Basement 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. The anchor is placed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. A plate is attached inside of the home on the damaged 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.
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. 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.
