Identifying Foundation Problems

If your Alisa Viejo home begins to experience the signs of foundation failure, the symptoms won't just be seen in the foundation itself. The signs that your home may require professional foundation repair services will be seen from the top of your house to the bottom. These could include:

  • foundation repair Lakeside, CASticking doors or windows or gaps between the frames
  • Sloping or uneven floors
  • Leaning or bowing walls
  • Cracks in ceilings, walls, or floors
  • Flaking or crumbling foundation

What Causes Foundation Problems?

Usually when foundation problems arise, they are caused by the foundation sinking or settling unevenly. This can be caused by a number of different things:

  • Soil shrinkage brought on by drought
  • Erosion
  • Earthquakes
  • Poor drainage
  • Poorly compacted soil

In any of these cases, the soil upon which your house sits can no longer supply strong enough support for the foundation. As it begins to settle unevenly, this places stress not only on the foundation but floors, walls and ceilings as well, leading to cracking.

It can also throw portions of your home out of alignment. This is why floors might begin to slope, doors and windows might stick and chimneys can begin to tilt.

Foundation Repair Solutions for Lakeside

If you begin to notice the signs of foundation failure, contact a foundation repair professional like those at Foundations on the Level as soon as possible. Foundation problems don't just disappear on their own and tend to get worse with time. Compromised foundations can lead to serious damage to your home and we can help stabilize your structure and give you peace of mind.

At Foundations on the Level, we use helical piers and push piers to stabilize and repair foundations. The piers are either sunk or screwed into the soil next to the foundation's footer until they reach a load-bearing strata of soil. After load testing to make sure the piers can support the weight of the home, the piers are attached to the foundation footer with a bracket. This way, the piers give the house the stable base that the soil itself can not.

We have many years of experience in crack repair at Foundations on the Level and we want to use that expertise, in combination with our quality products, to give you the best service possible. We have found the best method for crack repair is to use Roklin Dual Component Epoxy to seal and close the crack. After the crack has been shut, we then stitch the sealed gap with Fortress Carbon Fiber Staples, permanently sealing the crack and allowing you to cover the area with flooring, if you prefer.
