Signs of Foundation Failure
If you suspect foundation failure in your home, there are several key signs that help detect if you have a foundation problem. The following are some of the most commonly seen foundation problems we have seen in Chicago area homes resulting in a need for foundation repair services.
- Cracked or Bowing Basement Walls
- Doors and Windows that Stick or Do Not Close
- Cracks in drywall or ceilings
- Stair Step cracks between Bricks
- Water leakage through Cracks in Basement Walls
Causes of Foundation Failure
Hot and dry conditions may cause soil to pull away from the foundation. Settlement due to this foundation moisture imbalance could cause cracks to appear throughout the structure.
Tree roots could dehydrate the soil beneath a home causing soil shrinkage and settlement of the home.
Water from leaky plumbing is often a major contributor to foundation problems.
Improper drainage will lead to excess moisture build up, which could erode or consolidate soils. Excessive moisture may cause upheaval or settlement.
Poor Building Site Preparation:
Cut and fill situations, where soil is removed from part of the lot and stacked on another, must have proper soil stabilization before the structure is constructed; otherwise unexpected movements of the soil beneath the foundation may occur.
Poor Ground Preparation
Cut and fill situations should be properly prepared before structure is started or it may result in improperly compacted soil beneath the foundation.
Poor Soil Conditions:
Poor soil, organic components, debris, etc., may cause expansion or consolidation, which contribute to foundation failures.
The cost of your foundation repair will be determined on the severity of factors listed above.
