Foundation & Structural Repair
Sloping floors, cracks in walls, and doors that won’t close properly, are all signs of foundation problems. The vast majority of all homes built on expansive soils suffer from foundation distress. The problem starts when only part of the foundation lifts or settles, causing cracking and other damage.
If the frame of a house does not begin to distort until after three or more years of satisfactory performance, it is doubtful that the distortion is caused by full-depth foundation settlement, which is always evidenced by matching cracks. Cracks occur at each side of a portion of the foundation wall that is undergoing downward movement caused by soil bearing failure.
Foundation settlement cracks are usually always vertical, and can be confused with cracks that occur when a wall experiences lateral movement from soil pressure.
Warning Signs for Exterior
- Separation around garage door, windows and/or walls
- Cracks in brick
- Broken or cracks in foundation
- Separated Moldings
Warning Signs for Interior
- Cracked or distorted sheetrock
