How Do You Know If Your Foundation Needs Repair?
All foundations will settle with time, this is usually accounted for during it’s construction. When the settling is uneven or starts to get a little extreme, then you know there is an issue. Here are a few things we’re looking for when assessing a customers potentially damaged foundation.
- Are the basement floors uneven or cracked?
- Does the basement or crawlspace walls have cracks?
- Do you have doors or windows that don’t close properly?
- Are there any visible cracks in the foundation?
- Does your home appear sunk in one or more corners?
How Do You Repair A Foundation?
The first step is identifying the problem so we can determine the best solution for a proper repair. This starts with a site visit. If you have a finished basement, we may use a thermal imaging camera, or we may suggest some exploratory excavation work. With an unfinished space, a visual inspection will typically give us great insight in to the issues. In either case, once we have a thorough understanding of what we’re dealing with, we will then tailor a solution to address your foundation issues.
