Foundation Repair – House Lifting and Stabilizing

Foundation damage can happen to any building at any time.

As a homeowner, it’s crucial to the life of your home to have a regular inspection of your foundation. It may be hard to know exactly what to check for if you inspect the foundation yourself. It is best to hire a professional because detecting foundation issues may not be obvious.

  • Cracks or discoloration of the foundation require immediate inspection.
  • Moisture is the biggest threat to the health and stability of your foundation. Plumbing systems should also undergo regular inspection.

    How to spot foundation cracks or damage – The Warning Signs of Foundation Problem

  • Tilting or cracked chimney: Poor exterior drainage or expanding soil can cause foundations to crack and settle.
  • Cracked or bulging walls or cracked stairs: Soil movement under the foundation, hydrostatic pressure and poor water drainage are common with these issues.
  • Cracks or discoloration of the foundation require immediate inspection.
  • Uneven doors or doors that no longer shut: When a foundation settles, cracks or shifts, doors may no longer sit level or shut.
  • Stuck windows or window wells: When a foundation settles, cracks or shifts, windows may no longer shut. Window wells may hold excess moisture and allow water to seep into your basement.
  • Uneven or sinking floors: Shifting soil, humidity from water seepage and inadequate foundation waterproofing can contribute to flooring issues.
  • Basement or crawl space moisture: A wet basement or crawl space moisture can contribute to musty smells and mold growth.
  • Bugs: Bugs drawn to wet conditions can enter through cracks in the basement foundation.
  • Standing Water under house: Improper drainage often causes water to collect under the house.
  • Sinking foundations are another common problem homeowners experience. Structures can experience issues with soil stability. This is due to a change in the load bearing soil underneath the footings of the foundation.
  • Cracks are a warning sign of something bigger going on.
