What’s Causing My Foundation Problem?
The temperature and moisture that takes place in the soil around your foundation can have an effect on the foundation. Your foundation settlement is what happens when your home moves as the soil underneath it can’t support its weight, shrinking and settling over time. Your foundation will be affected by soil changes that can include drying and shrinking or wetting and softening or compacting and swelling.
If your foundation has bowing and buckling walls that means damage from expansive soils has taken a toll on it. That can happen through clay-rich soils taking in too much moisture ramping up the pressure by up to thousands of pounds.
If you have foundation issues, your home will not improve. Wet and dry periods will continue to alternate continuing a cycle of damage. You are better off to address your problem as soon as possible.
After a complete foundation inspection, we will tell you how and why damage took place and how repairs can be done by using materials and techniques. There are various answers for whatever damage you may have. If buckling foundation walls are the problem, foundation wall anchors could be the solution.
Repair to your foundation can happen any time of the year and can often be done in just one day. Foundation products come with a 25-year written warranty, in addition to a performance warranty.

If the total foundation must be replaced, heavy equipment is necessary for soil excavation around the home to expose your foundation. Porches, steps, gardens, walkways and foliage, may need to be removed.
The house would have to be put up on temporary supports while the foundations walls and possibly the floor slab are removed. Once a new foundation is constructed, the house is put back into its original position, the soil is repacked, and landscaping is restored. As opposed to foundation repair, a whole new foundation is far more expensive, disruptive and time-consuming.
Should the Foundation be Repaired Or Replaced?
If your foundation is damaged with horizontal cracks you should think about an entire replacement. However, you need to think over every option so you get the best return on investment with the least amount of family disruption.
