Foundation Repair Problems
Foundation repair problems can not only be come evident on the exterior of a structure, but also on the interior. Spotting foundation problems can initially be subtle, but over time, foundation issues on a structure can become a major issue.
There are three main things to look out for:
- Foundation damage may be evident because you have settling or uneven floors.
- Another tell-tale sign is windows and doors that no longer open and close the way they should. If you see wall separation from door and window frames, the problem could be your foundation.
- Cracks in walls, molding, and exterior concrete also point the way to foundation problems. Look out for foundation cracks and basement cracks (including horizontal cracks in basement walls).

What Does Foundation Repair Mean?
While there are different kinds of foundation repair, the shared goal is to stabilize the foundation. A professional will choose the right method for the situation. Two of the main types of foundation repair are foundation piering and slabjacking.
Foundation piering takes care of shifting clay or soil and other issues beneath the foundation. Piers are driven into the ground to prevent further movement of the foundation. Slabjacking, on the other hand, will involve drilling into the foundation to strengthen it with a mixture.
Do I Need Foundation Repair?
Uneven floors, cracks, or windows and doors that stick don’t mean that all is lost. In the best-case scenario, you may even find that your house is settling.
Foundations moving is not the problem. One part of your foundation moving while another part does not, however, can lead to damage. If your house is settling, this is natural and you won’t require a foundation repair.
