How Do I Know if I Have Foundation Problems?
The foundation is an important component of your home. You might not know that there’s a problem until it’s too late. There are a few things you can look out for to be proactive.
Cracks in Your Basement Walls and Floors
It’s normal for small cracks to appear in the concrete in your basement right after it’s poured. That’s because concrete shrinks as it cures.
Cracks that are widening, leaking, or bowing need to be addressed. These signs of foundation damage mean that something more serious is going on.
Some homes in Baltimore are built from bricks. Cracks forming in the bricks on the interior or exterior of your home aren’t normal. Cracks can range from small to very large.
Cracks in bricks usually signify a foundational issue. ’58 Foundations & Waterproofing can determine the cause of the cracks and provide you with effective solutions.
Sagging or Sloped Floors
Sagging floors typically occur in homes that have crawl space foundations. You might be able to see your floor sloping toward the middle of a room. You could also see a gap between the floor and the baseboard.
This type of problem requires crawl space repair. It’s usually caused by moisture getting into the floor joists, causing them to weaken. Two effective ways to protect crawl spaces from invasive moisture are crawl space encapsulation and crawl space waterproofing.
What Causes Foundation Problems in Baltimore?
There are a lot of reasons you might be encountering foundation problems. Let’s discuss some of the most common ones.
Expansive soils have multiple names, such as heavable, shrink-swell, and clay soil. These soils contain a lot of clay, which absorbs a high amount of water.
As the soil soaks up more moisture, it expands. When the soil expands, it pushes on your foundation. This can result in cracks and heaving in basement floors, cracks in foundation walls, uneven foundation settlement, and waterproofing problems.
Deep foundations are crucial for homes that have basements. A deep foundation needs to support the weight of your home and basement. It also has to fight against pressure from the surrounding soil as well as hydrostatic pressure when water saturates that soil.
The weight of the soil, in addition to changes in weather, can cause the pressure to shift and change. These alterations can result in problems with your foundation.
What Can Help Prevent These Foundation Problems?
Many of these foundation problems involve the presence of moisture or water. Along with foundation repair, ’58 Foundations & Waterproofing offers over 65 years of expertise in crawl space and basement waterproofing as well as crawl space encapsulation.
Our ’58 waterproofing system includes our Channel ’58 drainage channels and our Workhorse sump pumps. We also utilize thick vapor barrier liners to protect your lower level space from intrusive moisture and guide any water seepage to the drainage channels. Thanks to our specially-engineered drainage channels and high-power sump pumps, our waterproofing system is capable of capturing and moving as much as 3x the amount of water versus competitor solutions!
For crawl spaces, our crawl space encapsulation solutions include the use of 20-mil thick vapor barriers, our HumidiGuard crawl space dehumidifiers, and even crawl space waterproofing.
