Foundation Piering & Stabilization
The foundation of your home is the most important part of its structure. That’s why problems with your home’s foundation need to be dealt with quickly & correctly. If not, they can become more severe and start to cause problems with the structural integrity of your home. Fortunately, it’s usually very easy to spot serious foundation problems as some very obvious symptoms will begin to present themselves if the foundation is in need of repair.
What to watch for:
- Uneven and/or sloping floors
- Visible gaps between the wall & ceiling/floor joints
- Gaps between ceiling and decorative molding
- Cracks, or split mortar, on the exterior walls
A separating façade is an extremely serious issue and must be dealt with immediately in order to save the existing structure. The previous symptoms are the most obvious foundation repair symptoms to watch out for, but less alarming symptoms may also be indicative of future foundation problems. Cracked tiles & doors or windows that are unable to open smoothly are also signs of potentially serious foundation shifts and it’s best to get an expert opinion immediately.
How can we fix the foundation of your home?
Once you’ve spotted one, or several, of these issues, it’s only natural to be concerned. Many people attempt to fix foundation problems themselves by injecting the cracks in their foundation with epoxy putty, and while it appears to solve the issue superficially, it is really just a temporary solution and the problems are more than likely to reappear.
Rather than simply addressing the multiple symptoms, it’s more important to deal with the root of the problem and most of the time water is the culprit. The key to a strong, stable foundation is to maintain a well-designed drainage system that extends several feet out from your home. Poor drainage allows water to accumulate around your homes foundation, slowly softening it up and allowing it to shift. Water also causes soil to expand, which puts tremendous pressure on your foundation and causes cracks to appear over time.
Are you noticing cracks in your home? Are your doors and windows sticking, loose or not functioning at all? Are there cracks in your brickwork and in your foundation walls? Are your floor un level? Sometimes noticing these smaller problems can help avoid much larger ones. If your foundation is noticeably failed and sinking into the ground, it will allow everything above it to move as well. Your foundation is the most important part of your structure. Your entire home is resting on it. If it moves, so does everything else above it. This will cause needed repairs such as new doors and windows, cracked drywall, brick repair, even a total roof rebuild.
