What Are Common Signs of Foundation Troubles?
Foundation problems are more prevalent in Texas than in other parts of the country for one main reason: poor soil conditions. During wet conditions, the soil absorbs water and expands. The expansion may then put pressure on a home’s foundation and cause it to heave in the upward direction.
During the dry season, the soil often loses water and shrinks in volume. This may cause a home’s foundation to sink into the ground.
When either of these issues occurs, a myriad of problems can ensue, including:
- Large cracks may begin appearing on floors, walls, or even on the foundation itself.
- One side of your home may appear to be sinking or having settlement issues.
- In a slab foundation, the foundation may appear to have moved in an upward direction.
- Doors may begin to stick or fail to open or close properly. (This can also be due to high humidity levels. But if the problem continues even after the humidity levels lower, chances are that the problem may be lurking down beneath your home.)
- Gaps may appear between exterior doors and window frames. You may also notice that doors are no longer latching properly.
- Floors may appear not to be level. In the beginning, they may appear to be out of level by 0.5” or so. But over time, they may become uneven by up to 2 inches.
- Kitchen countertops and cabinets may appear to be pulling or tilting away from the wall.
If you notice any of these problems, call us immediately for a free foundation inspection service.
Our Approach to Home Foundation Inspections
If you contact us for an inspection, the first thing we’ll do is listen to your concerns. It may be possible that they may be completely unrelated to the foundation, which could be a huge relief.
If we determine that they may be foundation-related, we’ll schedule an inspection immediately. On the day of the inspection, we’ll come to your Lancaster home and examine it for foundation damage.
We’ll check for telltale signs like wood deterioration, excessive moisture, and a slanting chimney on the exterior. On the interior, we’ll look for things like misaligned doors and windows, cracks on walls and floors, and gaps between walls and cabinets.
We’ll then write a report of our findings and advise you on the way forward.
Because we specialize in both slab and pier and beam foundations, we’ll have the solution no matter what type of foundation your home has.
