Foundation settlement is a common structural problem seen on homes all over the region. It can be caused by a variety of factors. Mainly, it is a problem that is a result of poor soil conditions in the earth surrounding a foundation. Poor soil compaction during the time when the home was being built can lead to this problem, as well as an overly dry season that leaves the ground our contracted clay in our soil unable to support the weight of your home. Tree roots and vegetation can also grow under and around your foundation, creating voids for your home to sink into leaving the need for house leveling.
Regardless of what has caused the problem, it needs to be taken care of immediately before the structural integrity of your entire home is compromised. Along with noticing one or more sides of the home sinking into the earth, you may also notice some of the following warning signs of a structural problem:
• Sloped floors on the first level of the home
• Cracks inside or outside of the home on walls, floors, ceilings
• Tilting or leaning chimney that is pulling away from the home
• Leaky or flooded basement
• Windows and doors don’t open or close as smoothly or stick
While some degree of shifting and moving is considered normal, if the settlement occurs too quickly, it can result in problems. To take care of this common foundation issue, we can install our piers. The concentrically loaded piers we install have proven themselves time and time again to be effective at taking care of even the house leveling problems. They can be installed beneath your home to help with providing it with strength and stability. They work by shifting the weight of your home off of the poorly compacted soil and onto the piers themselves. This means that the load of your home is transferred to a strong pier in stable soil that will help to lift your home back up to the level where it needs to be, and the piers will also help to prevent any additional sinking.
We will diagnose your foundation issue and explain the best solution(s) available for your time frame, budget and goals. We will never sell you on services you don't need.
