Signs of a Foundation Issue
There are lots of common signs of foundation problems, and because of our climate and soil conditions here in the Midwest, issues can gain in severity very quickly. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms described below, contact our foundation settlement and crack repair contractors in Spencer and we’ll send out a professional to inspect your property. Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Cracks in walls, ceilings, or floors
- Gaps appearing between walls and trim or cabinets
- Uneven or bouncy floors
- Cracks at the corners of doors and windows
- Jamming doors and windows
- Exterior cracks in brickwork
- Water damage, including excess condensation, rotten boards, and pooling water
- Bowing basement walls
We offer multiple solutions for foundation settlement and wall crack repair in Spencer, Iowa such as wall anchors and pier systems. For bowing basement walls, carbon fiber support strips or wall anchors can be an easy and cost-effective way to prevent further inward movement and even straighten the walls in some cases. For more serious cases of foundation settlement, piering systems are a permanent way to stabilize your sinking home. Piers are driven deep into the ground until they reach a suitable substrate. Then, the weight of your home is partially transferred onto the piers to take excess weight off of your foundation and prevent additional settlement. Any one of these solutions may be right for your home. The only way to find out which is best suited for your needs is to call a professional foundation settlement repair inspector in Spencer—like CLS!
