Telltale Signs of Structural Failure
To correctly diagnose your foundation problems as a settlement issue, it’s crucial to have a professional take a look. Because there are unique solutions for different types of foundation problems, we need to get to the actual cause before determining the best fix.
Foundation settlement and other structural issues present themselves in many ways – some more obvious than others. If you see any of these signs in your home, it’s time to schedule an inspection:
- Cracks in your basement’s concrete floor
- Drywall cracks around windows and doors
- Windows or doors that are jammed
- Stair-step cracks in your foundation walls
- Moisture in your basement or crawl space
- Upper-level floors that are uneven or sagging
Why Settling Happens
Foundation settlement can usually be blamed on two main culprits: soil and moisture. What essentially happens is the soil under your home can no longer support its weight. When your foundation was first built, the dirt that used to be where your foundation is was dug up. After construction, some of it is replaced, but it’s never as compact and strong as it was before. Voids in the soil develop underneath your foundation slab, causing everything to shift and settle.
