Cracked or Crumbling Foundations
It is not always easy to see the early signs of foundation failure. Homeowners should take issues such as ceiling cracks, sloping floors, and cracked exterior walls very seriously. While these problems may seem mostly cosmetic in nature, they could be indicative of foundation problems such as a cracked slab. We highly recommend contacting your local foundation repair specialists for a foundation inspection and free inspection estimate. It is always better to know early on whether you may have a structural issue with your home in order to prepare both financially and mentally for the impact of repair work.
Settling and Sinking
Another common issue that affects concrete slab foundations and other types of foundations such as pier and beam or block and base foundations is sinking or settling. This occurs when the soil beneath your building starts to shift. Over time, soil may be eroded away by water, or expand and compact in response to changes in the weather. What began as a level base for your home may become uneven over time, placing tremendous stress on certain parts of the structure of the building. This can result in costly damage and threaten the stability and structural integrity of your building. There are several ways to correct these problems to prevent further damage. Mud jacking, house leveling, and other foundation repair methods directly target sinking and settling problems.
Maintaining a solid and strong building starts at the foundation. While it is a part of the home that remains underground and out of sight in many cases, it is nevertheless one of the most important parts of any building in terms of their structural components.
