Foundation Problem Signs
Below are the common signs of a failing foundation:
- The appearance of cracks on the foundation, walls, and floors. This is often the case when foundations move due to poor soil. Inclement weather conditions may also be the culprit.
- Floors sagging or becoming uneven. If you notice your floors aren’t level, that could be a sign of trouble. Have your foundation inspected by a professional as soon as possible.
- Malfunctioning doors and windows. If you notice your doors and windows are getting stuck when opening or closing, have a professional inspect them.
- The appearance of gaps in frames of doors and windows. When this happens, doors and windows are no longer able to latch properly. Again, this may be a sign of a foundation problem.
- The chimney bending or tilting sideways. This is arguably one of the most common signs of foundation issues. It is usually caused by the foundation shifting, causing a myriad of structural problems.
- The foundation sinking into the ground. If your foundation has sunk a few inches into the ground, that’s a sure sign of a failing foundation. Call a professional to inspect it further.
- The foundation shifting upwards by several inches. This is simply the opposite of a foundation sinking.
Foundation problems are far more common here in Texas than any other state in the country, with the expansive clay soil being the primary cause. While it’s great for farms and ranches, it’s a big headache for homeowners.
What Does a Foundation Inspection Entail?
At Granite Foundation Repair, we understand that each home is unique. As such, every inspection we do is customized to our client’s individual needs.
Our inspection process usually begins with a walkaround of the property. It’s here that we physically examine the home and look for signs of foundation problems. Next, we’ll walk the perimeter of your home to check for plumbing leaks and the state of drainage. Remember, water and foundations don’t mix well.
Once we have examined the exterior, we’ll take a look inside your home to examine whether the floor is sloping, the doors and windows are operating as they should, and check the size of any cracks on walls and floors.
We’ll also examine the crawl space in the case of a home with a pier and beam foundation.
Generally, our inspections take just an hour to complete. We’ll then write a report and take you through the findings.
In the event we do find problems, we’ll advise you on the course of action to take as well as provide you with a customized estimate.
