What Causes Foundation Issues?

When it comes to foundation problems, there are some things that we know to look for that are obvious signs that something is wrong. Follow our list of potential problems you could have right now and learn more about what causes foundation issues.

Stairstep Cracking

A common symptom of foundation settlement can be that cracks have formed in your brickwork or caulking. If you have noticed these cracks, which appear as stair-stepped cracks, or have fixed them previously, it could mean that your foundation walls have begun to sink or shift. If this problem occurs in your home, look for other symptoms and consult one of our professionals about the best foundation repair method.

Foundation Wall Cracks

If you have noticed wall cracks in the foundation in the basement of your home, then you may have an issue that needs to be repaired. Wall cracks can form due to excess hydrostatic pressure (pressure exerted on the walls of your basement from the water-saturated soil outside your home). This is a sign that your basement walls have succumbed to the forces being exerted on them and is an issue that should be repaired immediately.

Foundation Floor Cracks

The settlement of the base of your foundation generally causes foundation floor cracks. These cracks often allow water to seep into your basement, causing both a foundation issue and a basement waterproofing issue. These issues are usually caused by the improper compaction of the soil underneath your home during construction. The stress put on the concrete slab in your basement causes it to crack and sink into the depression it has caused. It is a problem that can happen at any point and is impossible to predict.

Bowed or Leaning Basement Walls

Like foundation wall cracks, bowed or leaning basement walls are caused by hydrostatic pressure (pressure exerted on the basement walls from the water-saturated soil outside your home). This problem greatly affects the structural integrity of your home and should be repaired immediately. Our team uses wall anchors specially designed to pull the wall back to its correct position and strengthen the support.
