Foundation Repair Contractors: Dealing with Foundation Settlement
Many homeowners are plagued with foundation settlement issues such as cracked walls or basement leaks. A foundation can settle very rapidly or it can happen slowly over time. This is not something that you should ignore, as foundation settlement gets worse over time. There are many safety issues as well as long-term financial concerns that, without foundation settlement repair, will cost exponentially more.
First Signs of Foundation Problems
Signs of Foundation Settlement are easy to spot but often overlooked by many people. The signs are subtle but give great insight into the root of the problem and can help experts determine the best and most effective plan of action. There are many different factors that can cause foundation failure. Signs of a settling foundation include:
- Stair step cracks in bricks or block
- Wide crack at the top of foundation wall / smaller down low
- Difficulty closing windows
- Cracks in concrete floor
- Doors sticking and pinching shut
- Cracked walls
- Ripping and tearing in drywall (diagonally)
Steel Piers and How to Repair Foundation Settlement
Once Foundation Settlement is deemed the problem, Quality Foundation will go to work immediately and repair your foundation. Oftentimes, a settling foundation in Nebraska can be repaired and put back into place using steel push piers. These specially designed hydraulic jacks are placed at strategic points along the foundation wall and work together to provide a synchronized lift, that puts the home’s foundation back in place.
Steel Piers are the less invasive choice when it comes to foundation settlement repair in Lincoln NE. If a homeowner waits too long to have their foundation repaired, it is possible that the damage is too severe and the foundation will need to be replaced. If this is the case, the home will need to be lifted off the foundation while a new foundation is built. While Quality Foundation has perfected this process and there is little interruption to your everyday life, this is a much more invasive method and typically costs more.
No matter what it is best to have your foundation problems looked at right away by qualified professionals. If you live in the Nebraska area and you are afraid your home may be experiencing foundation settling, call the foundation repair contractors at Quality Foundation today!
