What Causes Foundation Settlement

Cracked FoundationYour foundation is surrounded by several layers of soil. These layers all have different load bearing and density characteristics that affect how water surrounds your home. Some of the soils surrounding your foundation were left undisturbed during construction and are highly compacted. However, the soil immediately surrounding your foundation was filled back in after the foundation was constructed.

This fill soil is less compacted than the surrounding soil, which can cause water buildup and excess pressure around your foundation. As this soil expands and contracts, the constant movement weakens the load-bearing soils surrounding your home. This creates pockets and voids beneath your foundation, which your home will sing or settle into over time.

I had Trace come out to look at repairs for a corner of my foundation..(center block)..the repairs were considered minor. He said he would send a crew out and do repairs. Trace made a few suggestion on how I could do repairs and save a couple of bucks. I did the repairs as followed .

How to Identify Foundation Settlement Issues

Identifying a settling foundation can be easy if you know what to look for. We have put together a list of signs you can look for that indicate you have foundation settlement in your home. Take a look below to learn how to recognize foundation settlement issues in your home.

Ceiling
Drywall Cracks

Ceiling cracks are a sign that your foundation has settled. They most often occur around the corners of walls and other ceiling structures.

Hard to Open
Windows or Doors

The excess pressure from the settlement of your foundation can cause your doors or windows to become sticky and hard to open.

Sagging or
Uneven Floors

Sagging floors can be a sign of foundation problems. They most often occur over crawl spaces in the Central Michigan Area.

Cracks at the Corners

Doors and windows in your home are prone to cracking when you have foundation settlement. These cracks appear from the corners of the window or door jambs.

Leaning or
Settling Chimney

Our Foundation Settlement Repair Solutions in Central Michigan

Our team offers several solutions for foundation settlement repair depending on the cause of the issue. These include foundation piering, bowed wall repair, and wall crack repair. Each solution solves a different foundation issue and will strengthen your foundation while preventing future settlement.

Bowed Wall Repair

In some cases, bowed foundation walls can be a sign of foundation failure. When you have bowed walls, that section of your foundation is no longer supporting your home. Our team installs bowed wall anchors to strengthen and straighten bowed walls. These wall anchors work by tying your foundation wall into stable soil around your home.

Wall Crack Repair

Wall cracks are a common sign of foundation settlement. They occur when the wall is no longer properly supported and can cause other issues such as basement leaks. Our team uses epoxy injection to fill and seal foundation cracks. The epoxy injection method both seals and prevents further cracking of your foundation wall.
