Foundation issues in older homes and office buildings are often hidden. Usually, symptoms of serious foundation and structural damages show up later. These damages can be costly and affect the safety of your family or pedestrians. There are several obvious signs to be aware of to spot foundation failure. Look for the following:

  • Misaligned or sticking doors
  • Gaps around window and doors
  • Cracked slab
  • Foundation cracks
  • Floor cracks
  • Bowed walls
  • Leaning walls
  • Cracked stoop and porch
  • Sinking garage
  • Water damage

If you notice any of these warning signs, hire a professional to assess your foundation issues before it is too late. Avoiding these signs, can cause buildings to collapse and destroy your home's structure. You'll end up spending thousands of dollars on major repairs.

Avoid Foundation Failure in Martinez

What causes settling and sinking foundations in homes and buildings? Water is the number one reason for foundation damage especially in older structures. There are several ways you can avoid most foundation issues.

  1. Make sure your gutters are clean from leaves and debris on a regular basis.
  2. Make sure you have proper downspouts.
  3. Install an adequate waterproofing system to allow the direction of water to flow away from the foundation.
  4. Check the grade around the home. The ground should slope away from the home and away from the foundation.
  5. Are your trees planted too close to your foundation? Landscaping should be at least 5 feet away from your foundation.
  6. Repair all leaky pipes. Leaky pipes can cause damage to your drywalls.
  7. Avoid over-watering your lawn. This causes soil erosion and expansion which puts extra stress on your foundation walls.
