Common Causes of Home Foundation Damage

Home Renovation


Soil-Related Issues

The health of the foundation is heavily influenced by the soil. With variations in moisture levels, expansive clay soils can shrink and expand, causing the foundation to shift or crack. Poorly compacted fill soils can also cause settling.


Water Damage

Excess moisture from severe rains, flooding, or plumbing leaks can cause soil expansion, putting strain on the foundation. Drought conditions, on the other hand, can cause soil to shrink, resulting in gaps where the foundation can sink and crack.


Poor Drainage

Water might collect near the foundation due to poor drainage, causing soil to expand and placing pressure on the foundation walls.


Construction Errors

If the foundation was not properly built, it may create issues over time. This could be due to the use of substandard materials, insufficient steel reinforcement, or poor soil preparation.


Extreme Temperature Changes

Rapid or significant temperature fluctuations can cause soil contraction and expansion, resulting in foundation displacement.


Foundations can naturally settle and develop fractures over time. Older homes may experience foundation issues simply as a result of time and the long-term effects of weather and soil conditions.

  •  How long does a foundation repair typically take?

The time it takes to restore a foundation might vary greatly depending on the extent of the damage and the restoration method chosen. Minor repairs, such as repairing tiny cracks, may only take a day or two. Underpinning a house to remedy substantial settling, for example, could take many weeks. After examining the unique requirements of your project, your contractor will produce a timeframe estimate.

  • What are the most common foundation repair methods?

Sealing minor cracks, using piers or pilings for underpinning (to correct significant settling or instability), slabjacking (pumping a grout mixture under a slab or beam to lift it), and installing drainage solutions to help control water in and around the foundation are all common foundation repair methods.

  • What are the long-term implications of foundation repair?

Proper foundation repair can dramatically improve your home's safety, value, and longevity. It addresses structural faults in your home and keeps them from getting worse over time. However, if foundation repair is not done effectively, it might lead to reoccurring problems. To guarantee that foundation repairs are done correctly and last for a long time, it is critical to use a trustworthy and skilled contractor.
