How to Find Foundation Damage

My house does not have a basement. How can I tell if I need a foundation repair?

There are many signs of a unstable foundation, such as:

  • Cracks

    Cracked walls, floors, and tiles are often signs of an unstable foundation, especially if the cracks are major.

  • Slope

    Sloping floors show that the house is settling differently and could be a sign of bigger issues.

  • Separation

    Decks, porches, and exterior stairs pulling away from the house are giveaways for a failing foundation.

  • Water Leaks

    If you are noticing water leaks in your basement, they can often be red flags for a compromised foundation.

The Expense

Customers often assume that a cracked foundation requires the need for excavation, and they get caught in the cost of a project before even getting a professional opinion. Excavating is not always the solution. An expert will have an engineer evaluate the foundation and determine what can be done. In most scenarios excavating can be minimized if not eliminated. Often, carbon fiber straps can re-stabilize a foundation (hence, our fondness of and certification to install the Fortress Stabilization Systems).

Do-It-Yourself fixes often cause more issues then they solve. Trust your foundation repair to our professional teams at Herr & Company.
