A SIGN OF UNDERLYING FOUNDATION PROBLEMS

When there are posts and beams in your home that are uneven and tilting, the cause is generally something to do with your foundations. The result of foundation problems is that beams and posts will deform and become misshapen.

SETTLING FOUNDATION

Settled foundations cause the floor of basements to sink down into the ground, which takes away the support necessary for the rest of the house. Posts and beams are then forced to take on excess weight which they are not designed for. Without a firm floor in the basement, beam & post problems will emerge.

Water In The Basement

The result of a build-up of water in your basement tends to be that metal rusts and wood rots. This is dangerous for any beams or posts, as it will slowly diminish their load-bearing capacity. This can eventually cause these beams or posts to take on distorted shapes as a result of their weakness.

Solving These Problems

If the problem with the foundations is related to settling, then the way forward is to make use of piers. There are two types of these. They are helical, and steel. Either one is suitable but a contractor will make the decision. The piers will stabilize your foundations. The equipment that our contractors use comes from Earth Contact Products, who supply products designed to repair foundations. They are one of the best in the industry, and repairs with their products last for years.

If settling is not the problem, one other solution could be wall anchors. They seal up any cracks that have resulted from uneven or bent walls. Without dealing with cracks like these, water can seep into your basement space. To deal with these problems and others, contact an expert in foundation repair. The best thing you can do for this is to use our website. We can help you with a free estimate and find out what it will take to repair your foundation. Get in touch with us now to find out more!
