Signs You Need to Hire a Foundation Repair Contractor

Calling a foundation repair contractor probably isn’t on your list of enjoyable things to do. But letting a foundation problem go unaddressed is highly inadvisable. Even what looks to be a minor problem could be a sign that your foundation has deeper underlying problems. Consider a crack in a foundation wall, for example. If it is small, such as less than a quarter inch, then it is probably nothing serious. A wider crack, on the other hand, is likely going to require the attention of a qualified foundation repair professional. A sizable crack could be an indication that too much water is pushing against your foundation through the soil. It could also mean that your foundation wasn’t built properly or was built using inferior materials. Whatever the cause(s), a foundation repair contractor will be able gauge the severity of the problem and prevent it from becoming a bigger one down the road.


Finding a crack in a foundation wall is just one way of determining that you may need assistance from a foundation repair expert. What else can indicate a foundation issue? Warning signs include:

  • Cracks in the basement floor
  • A gap where the floor and wall meet
  • Foundation wall bowing
