Foundation settlement is common
The simple fact is, foundation settlement is quite common, and happens nearly everywhere in North America, to nearly every home, in varying degrees. A number of factors are contributors including soil shifting, weather elements, and age of structure, among others.
Signs of a Sinking Foundation
What are the sure signs of sinking foundation? How will you know when it’s time to call 3D Structural for an initial evaluation? Take a simple walk-through around your home and look for significant signs, such as:
- Visible cracks in the foundation
- Cracks in concrete, brick, or drywall
- Floors that appear to slope
- Gaps in unintended areas, such as chimney
- Bowing walls in basement areas
- Visible water damage
- Doors or windows that stick or don’t open properly
Permanent Foundation Repair gives peace of mind!
The only permanent way to repair a sinking foundation is to transfer the weight of the structure or home to solid soil that may be several layers below the existing foundation. This process will, in most cases, reverse much of the the structural damage, and provide renewed stability for decades to come.
