What Causes Foundation Issues?
When it comes to foundation problems, there are some things that we know to look for that are obvious signs that something is wrong. Follow along with our list of potential problems that you could have right now and learn more about what causes foundation issues.
A common symptom of foundation settlement can be that cracks have formed in your brickwork or caulking. If you have noticed these cracks, which appear as a stair-stepped crack, or have fixed them previously, it could mean that your foundation walls have begun to sink or shift. If this problem is occurring in your home, look for other symptoms and consult one of our professionals about the best foundation repair method for you.
Foundation Wall Cracks
If you have noticed wall cracks in your foundation in the basement of your home, then you may have an issue that needs to be repaired. Wall cracks can form due to excess hydrostatic pressure (pressure exerted on the walls of your basement from the water saturated soil outside your home). This is a sign that your basement walls have succumbed to the forces being exerted on them and is an issue that should be repaired immediately. We make use of a system of steel beams and carbon fiber reinforcement systems to stop crack growth and prevent them from causing more damage to your home.
Foundation Floor Cracks
Foundation floor cracks are generally caused by the settlement of the base of your foundation. The stress put on the concrete slab in your basement causes it to crack and sink into the depression that it has caused. These issues are usually caused by the improper compaction of the soil underneath your home during construction, it is a problem that can happen at any point and is impossible to predict. These cracks often allow water to seep into your basement causing both a foundation issue and a basement waterproofing issue.
Bowed or Leaning Basement Walls
Similar to foundation wall cracks, bowed or leaning basement walls are caused by hydrostatic pressure (pressure exerted on the walls of your basement from the water saturated soil outside of your home). This problem greatly affects the structural integrity of your home and should be repaired immediately. Our team uses high quality wall anchors and wall straightening systems that are specially designed to pull the wall back to its correct position and strengthen the support.
