foundation repair bay areaSoil-related issues constantly increase the need for foundation repair in California. If you live in the Bay Area of California, including San Jose, Sacramento, and San Francisco, you may have noticed the following problems in your home:

  • Drywall cracks
  • Doors and windows that stick
  • Floor cracks
  • Misaligned trim
  • Torn or wrinkled wallpaper
  • Sloping floors
  • Leaning chimney

Although they may not seem like a big deal at first, even the tiniest crack or misalignment can ultimately point to a serious foundation problem. Be sure to look out for any signs of cracking or unevenness in your home to see if you are in need of a foundation inspection.

Soil-Related Foundation Problems in California

The issues listed above may stem from poor compaction, overloading, or excessive organic material being present in the soil. Soil expansion due to excess moisture is a big issue as well. When it rains, the soil around your home will be heavily concentrated and bear weight against your foundation. The hydraulic pressure will weaken your foundation, thus creating cracked walls, sloping floors, and more issues like these in your home.

Your foundation is the source of structural integrity for your home. If it is weak, the rest of your home is truly in jeopardy.
