Signs of Foundation Issues

The foundation impacts every part of your home, which is why foundation damage may be spotted anywhere. Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Cracks in Floors – A settling or damaged foundation can lead to cracking in your floors, especially basement floors. If you see cracks in your concrete slabs or ceramic tiles, beware: it could be foundation damage.
  • Cracks in Drywall – Drywall cracks are hard to notice at first, but if they’re due to foundation damage, then they will continue to crawl and deepen.
  • Cracks in Brickwork – Brickwork will also crack if your foundation is damaged. Keep an eye out for severe cracks in brickwork.
  • Cracks in Corners – Your foundation shifting or damage will also lead to cracks in corners. Keep an eye out for widening gaps between siding.
  • Leaning Chimney – A leaning chimney is not normal, and it can signify foundation issues. Consult a professional as soon as possible if your chimney is leaning.

Reasons to Repair Foundations

Ultimately, the quality of your foundation impacts the quality of your home. If foundation problems progress, your entire home may be at risk. If you only have a minor foundation problem, it’s actually the best time for repair. Foundation issues progress, worsening over time until they lead to foundation failure. The sooner you address the problem, the easier and more affordable it is to address.

By repairing your foundation, you preserve the value of your property. Buyers avoid homes with foundation problems and certainly won’t pay full price for them. Repairing your foundation is essential for maintaining your home’s value.

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.
