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 leaning or bowing into the basement environment
- Chimney looks like it's 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 driveway, on porches or patios, and so on
- Home appears to be noticeably sinking deeper and deeper 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 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. Ultimately, these piers will help to keep the home stable, level, and secure.
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 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 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.
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. 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.
