Damaged Foundation Signs

Your home’s foundation impacts every area of your home. If the foundation has issues, you may notice it in the walls and floors of your home.

Here are the most common signs of damage to watch for:

  • Cracks in Floor- Cracked floors are a big warning sign. If your foundation settles, it may crack your ceramic or concrete floors. The cracks may spread or grow as time goes on.
  • Cracks in Drywall – Drywall cracks can be hard to see at first, but they will worsen if the underlying foundation problem is not addressed. Drywall cracks happen when your foundation shifts and the walls move with it.
  • Cracks in Brickwork – Much like drywall, brickwork will also crack if you have foundation problems.
  • Cracks in Corners – When your foundation shifts, it will also shift your siding. You may notice growing gaps between siding and cracks in corners.
  • Leaning Chimney – If your chimney is leaning, there’s a high chance you need foundation work. The chimney should be standing straight and tall.

Reasons for Foundation Repair

Foundation issues are not something that you want to leave be. They will only progress over time. Do not let those seemingly minor cracks fool you; behind them is something much more serious. If you allow them to expand, your entire house may suffer.

Taking care of these problems early will save you lots of time, trouble, and money. Not to mention, you are also investing in maintaining your home, which will pay off when it comes time to sell your home.

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.
