A serious home foundation problem was certainly not something you hoped for when you invested in your home. However, we are here to help educate you on your foundation problem and to help you locate a foundation contractor that understands home foundation repair problems. With the information we provide you, we hope that you will be able to make an educated and informed decision on how to proceed. Here are some short discussions on foundation repair that are covered in our website:

The signs of foundation repair problems are many times obvious. Doors and windows are not shutting properly, there are cracks in basement walls, exterior walls are sinking, or there are cracks in the basement floor foundation slab of your home.

Study the cracks in your walls and foundations.  Wall cracks can tell a story.  Looking at the patterns of a foundation crack can be informative.  When studying walls, in general, vertical cracks are less likely to be structural in nature whereas horizontal and tailing (step down) cracks can be signs of structural failure.  One way to determine if a wall is still moving or settling is to measure the crack.

The causes of home foundation problems vary significantly.  There are many reasons why your home foundation might be sinking, cracking, or leaking.  The primary reasons foundations fail include poor soil, poorly compacted soil, expansion and contraction of soil, and water/erosion. In the worst cases, however, it can also be the result of a poor foundation contractor.

  • Soil Problems: Poor soils or poorly compacted soils are a leading cause for home foundation problems.  First, different types of soils react differently. If your home was built on expansive soils, over time the soil beneath your home will expand and contract as the moisture content of the soil changes with the seasons and temperature.  This expansion and contraction often causes cracks in foundations.

    Second, if your home was built on "fill" that was not properly compacted, over time the soil will compact and result in settlement.  This settlement can cause foundation cracks.  A little settlement is typical for most homes and many times the soil will, over time, reach a stable compaction point. At that time, foundation settlement will stop.
     

  • Water & Erosion Problems: Water and erosion are common reasons why foundations begin to sink or settle. This can occur as the result of changes in water drainage patterns (development around your property), changes in water table levels, plumbing leaks, and drainage from your roof or driveway.

There are many foundation repair methods for solving your foundation problems.  Included among these repair methods are: helical pier systems, push piers, resistance piers, concrete underpinning, slab jacking, mud jacking.

Helical piers are used for new construction and to support existing structures. In compression they are used as footers and in tension they may be used to support retaining or foundation walls. Using a hydraulic motor attached to a backhoe or skid steer, the pier (which is essentially a large screw) is drilled into the earth to a specified depth or until refusal. It is a fast and easy way to install a foundation system.

The one thing everyone hates is a leaky basement. However when you need foundation waterproofing, you need to find a good contractor to solve the problem.
