Types of Foundation Problems
Our team has seen it all. Homes with untreated foundation problems always end up with even more things to fix. With our years of experience and specialized knowledge, we can identify every kind of foundation failure symptom and determine the best solution to permanently correct it.
When air pockets form and your soil can no longer support the weight of your home, settlement happens. Telltale signs of a settling foundation include separation of doors and windows from their framing and cracks in your home’s drywall.
When the soil around your foundation walls becomes oversaturated with water, it causes hydrostatic pressure that exerts immense pressure on your foundation walls, making them buckle or bow.
Cracks in your foundation that have the appearance of “stairs” indicate a serious problem. This more subtle foundation problem means that soil movement around your home is causing significant damage.
If your home’s main level floors show signs of sloping or “bounciness”, it’s likely due to a lack of support from your crawl space or foundation. Other symptoms typically accompany floor problems, like separation around baseboards in areas where the floor is unlevel.

Why Foundations Fail
There’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to foundation failure. Every home, cause, and symptom differs greatly. However, soil and moisture problems are typically the root cause of structural failure. The best way to discover why your foundation is failing and how to permanently restabilize it is to recognize the symptoms your home is experiencing and get a professional to inspect them.
