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 tilting or pulling away from the home
- Windows and doors become difficult to open or close
- 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. 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 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. 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.
