Foundation Problems

When your home foundation fails, we provide permanent repairs

What causes structural foundation problems?

Most home foundation issues come down to one thing: soil. The soil underneath your home can no longer bear its weight. This can happen due to excessive moisture, drought, or the inadequate compaction of the fill soil placed there by the developer who built your home.

Another problem is contractors who mistakenly assume the soil they're building on is competent. This happens more often than you'd think because most residential developers don't employ geotechnical engineers to assess the soil prior to construction the way commercial developers do. When these foundation issues occur, symptoms will manifest themselves in foundation settling, foundation cracks, and floors being uneven.

Why fix your foundation problem?

Foundation problems typically progress very slowly. In fact, that foundation wall crack in your basement may only grow an inch or two a year. So, it's easy to put off fixing foundation issues. Unfortunately, a settling foundation will not lift itself back into place and a bowing wall repair will not happen on its own. Only a foundation repair specialist has the tools and knowledge required to install a foundation pier system to raise your settled structure, or a wall brace to keep your basement foundation walls in place. It is important to address your issues early on to avoid a greater foundation repair cost down the road.

Signs of Foundation Failure

Do any of these signs look familiar?

Cracked Brick

Look for stair-step cracks on exterior brick or block walls. You may notice them widening over time.

Shearing Walls

You may notice the block wall "shearing" near the bottom because the concrete floor in the basement is holding the bottom row of blocks in place as the rest of the wall slides inward.

Ceiling Gap

Look for a gap between the ceiling or floor and the interior walls of your home. You may also notice sloping floors, gaps around door frames, sticking doors or cracks in the wall.

Bowing Walls

Because poured concrete walls act as a single unit rather than a group of mortared blocks, they often fail at the top instead of cracking and bowing in. The failing wall breaks free from the rest of the structure, leaning in from the top.

Sagging Floors

Look for floors sloping, sometimes creating a gap between the floor and the interior walls of your home.

Chimney Separation

One of the most visible and dramatic signs of foundation settlement is a chimney separating from the house. This often occurs when the chimney and home rest on separate foundations and settle at different rates.

Cracked Stucco

As with a brick exterior, stucco can crack under stress as a home's foundation sinks in an uneven manner. Instead of simply being patched, the underlying issue needs to be addressed to prevent future problems.

Signs of foundation failure may not always be so obvious.

When a foundation begins to fail, the signs of this failure may be obvious, such as a foundation wall crack or separating chimney. But other signs may go unnoticed, or you may not even realize they're signs of a foundation issue. That's because foundation problems can cause symptoms throughout your home.
