Watch for These Signs of Foundation Damage

Slanted houses and huge cracks are obvious forms of foundation damage, but it’s not always so evident. Foundation damage can begin with very subtle clues that you must be aware of. The earlier a damaged foundation is addressed, the better the outcome. By repairing minor damage and getting to the root of the cause, we can limit the cost of repairs and prevent more serious damage. Here are some signs of foundation damage to be aware of:

  • Gaps by windows and door frames – Very tight windows/doors that are suddenly hard to use, or large gaps around windows and doors signify a foundation issue.
  • Chimney lean – A sinking chimney will offset your home, and a leaning chimney is an easy way to spot this.
  • Cracked floors – Ceramic or concrete floors can show when foundations settle or shift. Cracks in your floor could point to problems with the foundation.
  • Cracking drywall – Much like floors, walls can also crack when there is a problem with the foundation. If you notice cracks in your drywall, it’s time to check the foundation.

Reasons to Get Professional Saginaw Foundation Repair

In the long run, the repair will save you a lot of money and hassle. The earlier you address foundation problems, the better the outcome.

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.
