Signs of Foundation Repair Problems
The overall well-being of your home’s structure depends on the foundation performing its intended purpose. It must support everything from the bottom to the top: floor coverings, cabinets, walls, doors, windows, and roof. Simply put, the integrity of your home’s foundation protects the value and health of your home. Some things to watch for are:
Uneven or sloping floors
Cracks in sheetrock walls
Gaps between wall and floor, or wall and ceiling
Floor tiles cracking
Counter tops out of level
Doors sticking or unable to lock
Exterior brick cracks or mortar separation
Gap in expansion joints
Typical Causes Of Foundation Problems
The Houston, Texas area has high clay content in the soil, which, depending on moisture levels, expands and contracts. Excessive moisture in the soil causes a swelling effect, whereas too little moisture causes a shrinking effect, and this can cause the foundation to gradually have differential movement.
Excessive moisture retention in the soil can be caused by standing water due to poor drainage, especially when occurring in low-lying areas around the foundation’s perimeter. This water pooling can be exacerbated by improperly adjusted sprinkler systems, poor yard grading and drain line plumbing leaks under the slab.
Too little moisture in the soil can be caused by large trees with roots too close to the foundation as well as excessive periods of heat. Tree roots can absorb a lot of water and can cause the soil to contract. This contraction can cause minor movement of your homes foundation. You want to ensure that you properly maintain your slab foundation, especially during extended periods of dry, hot weather.
In order to properly maintain a foundation’s performance in Texas, you should ensure that you have a system in place that will provide moisture around the perimeter of your home. In most cases this will be a lawn sprinkler system or even a soak hose placed around the outside of your house. Also, you should ensure that you do not have any plumbing leaks under you slab by having a pressure test performed on your plumbing system every few years. Lastly, root barriers should be installed between a homes foundation and any large trees that may be close to your home to ensure that moisture is not being removed from the soil and the root system is not making contact with your foundation.
