The problems explained below deserve more immediate attention. These are all common and at '58 Foundations we've been solving them for decades.
Cracked foundation walls. When a foundation wall cracks, it’s usually in response to soil and water pressure from outside the foundation, or from settlement that causes part of the wall to sink or shift.
Bowed walls. Basement and crawlspace walls can bow inward due to pressure from water and soil outside the foundation. Bowed basement walls are also likely to have serious cracks.
Tilting walls. Soil and water pressure against the exterior of a foundation can cause a basement or crawlspace wall to tilt or lean inward.
Settlement. If the soil beneath a foundation wall or floor does not have sufficient load-bearing capacity, the weight of the wall or floor can cause it to settle. Settlement will also occur when erosion removes soil from beneath a foundation, creating a void. This damage is sometimes referred to as a sinking foundation. Severe and significant cracking in walls and floors can occur with settlement.
Leaning chimney. A sign of settlement is a chimney leaning away from the home.
