A home foundation serves the most important purpose in your home’s structural integrity. If your foundation is compromised, that could lead to grave problems like a wall collapse or a crooked house. Here are a few ways to detect foundation damage from Rapid-Dri Foundation Systems, the foundation repair specialist for your home.
Check the Structure of Your Home
There are three main reasons for structural damage. They are deteriorating stem walls, shrinking foundation settlement and surging soil in the foundation heave.
The stem walls keep the structure stable, but they also deteriorate due to age. A shrinking foundation settlement is the result of a house distortion or unequal compression of its foundation. Lastly, the floors of your basement may heave due to natural soil expansion from the ground up. These three structural issues lead to foundation damage. The best thing to do is to get foundation repair done immediately.
Take a Closer Look at Other Minor Foundation Problems
When your walls are starting to crack, no matter how thin the cracks are, it’s a clear sign of structural damage. So are bowing basement walls, sagging crawl space floors, leaning chimneys, sinking front porches and water intrusion in the basement.
When all of these forms of damage appear at the same time, you are going to need emergency foundation replacement.
