How Do I Know If My Foundation Needs Repair?
The most obvious sign of foundation damage is significant cracking in the foundation walls. However, all foundations settle during the first few years after construction. A certain amount of small cracking is to be expected, so very minor vertical cracks should not be cause for alarm. Nevertheless, if you have cracks in your foundation that are half of an inch wide or wider, or if the cracks are horizontal or in a “stair-step” pattern, you should contact a foundation repair contractor right away as these may indicate more severe foundation damage.
Beyond visible cracks in your foundation, some other indicators that your foundation might be sinking or settling unevenly include:
- Windows or doors that stick when you’re opening and closing them
- Cracks in your walls and ceiling, especially spanning up from doorways and windows
- Counters or cabinets that are pulling away from the wall
- Gaps around your windows or exterior doors
- Sagging or uneven floors in your home
- Water in your basement or crawlspace
If you’ve noticed any of these red flags at your Buckhead-area home, there’s a good chance that foundation repairs need to be made. As a trusted foundation repair company, Engineered Solutions of Georgia can perform a thorough assessment of your foundation to determine the extent of the damage and devise a lasting solution that meets your needs as well as your budget.
The ESOG Foundation Repair Process
After evaluating various factors such as the size of your structure, the soil’s relative strength, and the severity of the foundation leak, our team of foundation repair experts will determine the most suitable course of action. They may identify issues like inadequate floor framing causing cracks in your foundation, soil pressure causing bowing basement walls, or poorly compacted soil beneath your home foundation that can be strengthened through pressure grouting. Regardless of the chosen approach, our skilled foundation repair specialists will carry out the necessary steps with professionalism to ensure the long-term stability of your foundation. Here are just a few of ESOG’s most common foundation repair services:
- Filling in cracks in the foundation walls and floor to prevent moisture from getting into your basement or crawlspace
- Stabilizing cracked or bowing foundation walls with tiebacks or wall plate anchors
- Using carbon fiber support straps to reinforce and stabilize foundation walls
- Filling subterranean voids or leveling concrete slabs with a fast-curing poly lift system
In some cases, our team may recommend a combination of the above repair methods to provide you with a total solution.
