Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What are the signs of both interior and exterior foundation problems?

Common signs of interior and exterior foundation problems include: Bowed walls, open spaces around windows and window frames, sticking doors, cracked sheetrock, uneven or shaky floors. Check your structure for cracking bricks, blocks, and mortar that form horizontally, vertically, or stair step-like fissures. These are all signs of failure in your footing. Cracks in the foundation walls typically appear at the weakest points, including corners, edges of window frames, concrete cold joints, long spans of walls, pipe penetration, and along the tie rods in the foundation.

When you are finished with raising and stabilizing the foundation, who repairs the cracks in the mortar and bricks?

We do! The application of mortar to brick is called tuck-and-point. After we have raised the foundation to the best allowable grade, we will tuck-and-point the area where we have worked. In order to stay as close to the structural cosmetics as possible, the process sometimes involves mixing brick color into the mixture.

What causes foundation problems?

Foundation problems can be caused from a variety of sources that affect new and older homes. Seasonal weather periods, with wet and dry cycles, produce changes in the soil bed under the home’s foundation. This causes expansive clays to shrink and swell, which can crack the concrete footings and cause settlement issues. Large tree roots can drink water close to parts of the foundation and compromise the structure by growing under footings. Poor drainage, insufficient amount or lack of rebar or improper rebar placement, soil compaction, poor soil conditions, and plumbing leaks are some of the additional causes of foundation problems.
