Signs of Foundation Damage

Foundation damage is not always as clear as you may think. It’s vital to monitor your foundation for any signs of damage. The earlier the damage is caught, the better the chance that we can repair it. Early intervention prevents more extensive damage and keeps the cost of repairs down. Here are the top signs to watch for:

  • Cracked drywall – Hairline cracks in your drywall that continue to grow are a huge warning sign. Drywall cracks signify a larger problem with your foundation.
  • Floors cracking – If you have hard floors made from ceramic or concrete, they may crack if your foundation settles and shifts. Don’t ignore cracks on the floor!
  • Window or door frame gaps – If you notice large gaps around windows/doors or they suddenly become really tight, you may have a foundation issue.
  • Leaning chimney – When the foundation sinks, it can offset your home and cause your chimney to lean.

Benefits of Flint Foundation Repair

Soil conditions, drought in clay, and water can cause shifting that damages your foundation. If you notice any signs of foundation damage above, it’s time to act fast.

Flint foundation repair is about a lot more than cosmetic appeal. A failing foundation is a huge safety concern. Without reparation, the foundation will eventually fail entirely and cause your home or business to collapse.

Foundation problems are progressive. Foundation cracks or sinking cause weak points that will only worsen over time. Flint foundation repair puts the damage to a halt, preventing issues from worsening. In the end, this will save you a ton of money. Handling complete foundation failure is much more costly than resolving the problem early on.

Furthermore, foundation repair also helps preserve the value of your property. You have a much better chance of selling your property for more when it has a sound foundation. Unresolved foundation issues are a huge red flag for buyers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Foundation repair can include wall stabilization with wall braces and carbon fiber straps, installing a wall patch for a wall crack with water intrusion, and stabilizing a settling foundation with helical piers. Sometimes the process is also called house leveling or foundation leveling.

Our approach depends on the type of crack and the condition of the wall. For vertical cracks with water intrusion, we implement a wall patch. This involves a PVC sheet riveted to the wall.

Settling foundation costs start from $5,000 and can go up to $50,000 or more as it depends on the type of foundation problem and the size of the home.

Each crack is unique. Our team does our best to identify the type of crack and the durability of the wall. More often than not, we do a wall patch. These patches are a piece of PVC sheet riveted to the wall for vertical cracks with water intrusion.

We can stabilize a settling foundation using helical piers. We always attempt to lift the home back to its original position, but this cannot be guaranteed in every situation due to the condition of the footer or repairs that may have been made to the home. Please note that we cannot lift a home so that additional blocks can be added to make the basement or crawlspace taller.

It depends on the reason for the crack. Some cracks can be left alone (shrink crack with no water intrusion). A crack can be a symptom of many things such as shrinkage for a poured basement wall, a bowing wall, or a settling foundation. We need to evaluate other things to determine the type of crack and the correct solution.

Some of the signs of foundation problems include:

  • Cracks in the foundation
  • Cracks in drywall
  • Doors and windows sticking
  • Home being pulled away from a
  • Deck or new addition

Tree roots aren’t always the cause of foundation, but it is a possibility. Tree roots can grow below the foundation and can cause uneven floors throughout your property.

You may feel a slight slope when walking, if you drop something it may roll to a certain area. Your cake may bake unevenly if the floor below the oven is sloping (this has happened to me).

Flooding can wash out the soil below your footer or cause water intrusion into your basement or crawlspace. Both of these incidents damage the foundation of your home.

Issues with your foundation can come in the form of water intrusions or cracks in the walls or floors.

One of the biggest issues we see with a post and beam foundation is sagging floors and walls. This is especially true if there is a load-bearing wall.
