Need Foundation Repair?

Promptly addressing foundation issues is crucial, as problems left unattended can quickly escalate, leading to more extensive and costly repairs. Are you aware of the signs that indicate potential foundation issues in your home?

This information could help you avoid expensive repairs down the line, so keep an eye out for the following indications of foundation problems:

  • Cracks in walls or floors: This is one of the most common signs of foundation issues. Horizontal cracks may indicate that there is pressure on the walls from soil or water outside. Vertical cracks, while sometimes less severe, can still be signs of foundation settlement and should not be ignored.
  • Doors or windows that stick: If you notice your doors or windows are difficult to open or close, it can be a sign that your foundation has shifted, affecting the frame alignment.
  • Uneven or sloping floors: This may indicate that part of your foundation is settling faster than another part, which could potentially lead to severe structural damage if left unchecked.
  • Gaps around window frames or exterior doors: Similar to sticking doors or windows, gaps can appear when a foundation moves and puts your home out of square.
  • Visible bowing of walls: Bowing or bulging walls are signs of serious foundation stress from soil expansion and contraction against your foundation.
  • Water in basement or crawl space: Persistent moisture or water in your basement or crawl space could be a symptom of cracks in your foundation.
  • Chimney separation: If your chimney appears to be leaning or separating from the rest of your home, this could be an indication that the foundation supporting it is moving.

If you notice any of these signs, we recommend you get your foundation inspected as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

Our Solutions

Your home's foundation is the cornerstone of its structural integrity. The presence of moisture can lead to various issues both inside and outside. Look out for signs like cracks in walls, misaligned doors and windows, and uneven floors.

Chattanooga and its surrounding areas experience ever-changing soil conditions, causing expansion and contraction. When the soil becomes saturated, it expands, and when it dries out in the summer, it shrinks. These constant changes can result in foundation settlement.

Our Pier System

At Basement and Crawlspace Solutions, we offer a premier solution for addressing foundation settlement issues: our pier system. This method involves inserting steel piers into the stable subsoil beneath your home. These piers serve to support and lift your home's foundation, evenly distributing the structural load. By addressing the underlying soil instability, this long-term solution helps prevent future settlement.

Our pier system is engineered for strength and durability, increasing the stability and security of your home's foundation for years to come. With this technique, you can have confidence that your foundation repair is not just a temporary fix but a permanent improvement to your property's stability.

Don't let foundation problems compromise the safety and value of your property. Call us at (423) 592-7950 today for a comprehensive foundation repair service.

Helpful Tips for Protecting Your Foundation

Foundation maintenance is essential to support the safety, longevity, and stability of your home. By following these tips, you can maintain a strong foundation and prevent costly repairs. Remember that prevention is always better than cure, and a little bit of maintenance can go a long way.

Here are some tips for keeping your home sturdy and stable:

  • Regular inspection: Regular inspection of your foundation is vital to detecting issues early. Check for cracks, gaps, or other signs of damage.
  • Keep water away: Ensure that the ground around the foundation slopes away from the house to prevent water buildup. Water can cause soil erosion, leading to foundation damage.
  • Fix drainage issues: Address any drainage issues, such as clogged gutters or downspouts, to prevent water buildup near the foundation.
  • Maintain vegetation: Ensure that vegetation around the foundation is trimmed and does not come into contact with the house. Roots can cause foundation damage.
  • Use proper soil: Ensure that the soil around the foundation is of the correct type to prevent soil movement, which can cause foundation damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

What If My Foundation Is the Issue?

There are many foundation waterproofing methods and products available to prevent water intrusion. However, most water problems can't be solved with a single product or treatment. Working with a reputable waterproofing company is the best way to ensure that the waterproofing systems that best suit your specific needs are installed. 

Can I Undertake Foundation Repair as a DIY Project?

While it might be tempting to try and save money by undertaking foundation repair as a DIY project, it's not recommended. Foundation repair requires a professional understanding of structural engineering principles, soil conditions, and the correct use of specialized tools and materials. Incorrect repairs can lead to more serious damage and even compromise the structural integrity of your home. Always seek professional help for foundation repairs. 

How Long Does a Foundation Repair Last?

The lifespan of a foundation repair can vary significantly, depending on the quality of the work and the materials used. However, with a professional repair job using high-quality materials, foundation repairs can last for many years, even decades. It's important to note that foundation repair does not prevent future damage if poor drainage conditions, expansive clay soils, or other detrimental conditions persist. Therefore, a good maintenance strategy must accompany the repair.
