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 form on walls and along window or door frames
- Walls are tilting or bowing into the basement environment
- 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 garage, on sidewalks, etc.
- Home appears to be noticeably sinking deeper and deeper 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. 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. Ultimately, these piers will help to keep the home stable, level, and secure.
Bowed walls are another problem caused from the soil surrounding a home. Whenever it rains or when you have melting snow, the soil will absorb the moisture and swell up. 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. However, the problem may also indicate a more severe underlying structural problem. 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 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.
