Foundation problems are one of the most serious structural issues a building can face. Contrary to popular belief, however, a building that suffers from foundation problems wasn’t necessarily neglected or a victim of poor construction. Lots of times, homes and businesses require professional foundation repairs because of soil composition or erosion issues.
Some common causes of foundation problems include:
- Weak soils, such as clay
- Poor compaction of fill
- Drought conditions causing reduction in soil moisture content
- Large plant root systems nearby
It is important to address foundation problems, such as settling, bowed walls, or cracks, as soon as they are discovered to prevent them from worsening. Cracking drywall, stuck doors, and uneven floors are just a few of the “small” things that may signify big problems with your property.
