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 tilting 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 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 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. Eventually, this will help to keep the home stable and supported, permanently.
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 will put a lot of pressure on your basement walls, and this pressure is known as hydrostatic pressure. Eventually, it will cause the walls to lean into the basement. To take care of the problem, we can install 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. 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.
