Foundation Repair

A settling house, improperly cured concrete, water, and wayward roots can all contribute to damaging the foundation of your home. Foundation issues can indicate underlying problems or even be the actual source of a bigger concern. How do you determine if you need foundation repair services? Here are a few examples that there may be problems with your foundation:

Foundation Pier Basement

  • Block foundation cracks
  • Cracks in brick
  • Loose and deteriorating mortar
  • Bowing foundation walls
  • Drywall cracks
  • Concrete cracks
  • Basement mold
  • Basement mildew
  • Wet spots on the walls
  • Warped paneling
  • White powder on walls (Efflorescence)


Once you have identified the problems in your foundation, it is now time to decide what to do. Your choices really boil down to three options:
  • Leave it untreated
  • Do it yourself
  • Seek professional advice

Leave It Untreated

Damaged foundations that are left untreated can quickly become bigger, more expensive problems. Water can easily penetrate through foundation cracks which can ultimately lead to the growth of mold and encourage pest infestations. Beyond the obvious health concerns this can create, waiting to perform house foundation repairs can also lead to other structural damages and the devaluation of your home by as much as twenty-five percent.

Do-It-Yourself (DIY)

There are many homeowners who feel they can save money by addressing the issues in their home by themselves. However, improper installation of many foundation repair systems will not only fail to work properly, but also add to the cost of doing the actual repair. In fact, warranties on many of the waterproofing products and systems, used for foundation crack repairs and other structural repairs, are often voided if they are not installed by a certified specialist.
