By now you may have recognized some of these signs in your own home. Before you throw up your hands and say, we can't afford this; give us a call for a comprehensive free evaluation of your foundation.

Our experience is that about 50% of the homes that we inspect need little or no foundation repair. Some of the problems can be solved by drainage correction.

A leaking pipe under a concrete slab, either sewer or fresh water, can cause the ground to swell and give the false impression that the foundation is failing. Water collection under a pier and beam home can the piers, causing the beams and floor to rise. Stagnant water under a pier and beam house will cause the concrete piers, which often rest on the surface of the soil, to sink. Our foundation repair technicians are trained to look for these conditions.

Foundation problems need to be promptly resolved. Unless the causes of foundation problem are identified and repaired, the foundation will suffer, with additional damage in the form of cracked walls, stuck doors, breaks or separation in walls and ceilings, cracks in slabs, broken water lines, roof separation, and ugly cracks in exterior brick.
