Foundation Settlement

Typical signs of foundation settlement are stair-step cracks and vertically sheared bricks or blocks. We see this frequently in the DMV region.

The most common and typically most economical method of repairing failed foundations that have settled is to install a series of steel underpinning piers below the affected foundation area. The load-bearing steel shafts are installed independent of the structure and their bearing or holding capacity is verified as each pier is installed. Adjustable brackets are then attached to the base of your foundation walls, connecting the anchors to the foundation. The weight of your home is then shifted to the anchors. In the process, foundations, walls, and floors are repositioned and retained (i.e., “jacked”) from further movement.

Bowing or leaning Foundation Walls

Ground water exerts a huge amount of pressure on a home or other building. When the soil around your house, for example, becomes saturated with water from heavy rains or water leaks, the water exerts additional force against the walls.

Foundation walls can be damaged by soil pressure. In some cases, the soil’s weight is simply too great to be held back by the foundation wall. In other cases, soil with high clay content expands during wet weather, exerting additional pressure against foundation walls. Whatever the cause, there are several telltale signs of foundation wall damage.

When it’s cold, frost can put pressure on a wall and cause it to fail, especially if the basement is unheated. Frost forces can be powerful and can even lift shallow foundations up out of the ground, causing significant damage to the home.
