Causes of Foundation Damage in the Orange Area

There are several reasons that a foundation can be damaged, it's important that you have a professional look at your home and determine the right solutions for your particular situation.

Some causes may be:

  • Heavy rains
  • Trees or roots
  • Earthquakes
  • Droughts
  • Poorly compacted soil

The damage that can be caused by these occurrences can vary greatly.

You may notice cracks in walls, ceilings, or floors, or doors and windows that stick. Floors may begin sloping or creaking and gaps may open around trim or doorways. On the outside of your house or in your basement you may begin to see a cracking or crumbling foundation. All of these signs point to your home needing foundation repair.

Foundation Repair Solutions

The first step, as it should be with any repair, is to precisely diagnose the problem.

We have a team of professionals that can provide a free inspection (free for property owners only) and will even go over the results with you, addressing any questions or concerns you may have. We want you and your family to feel safe and secure in your home and you need to feel confident in any work that we perform.

Foundations on the Level uses helical piers and push piers to strengthen your foundation and bring your home's stability back to what it once was.

Helical piers consist of metal rods with helical plates on them that give them the appearance of giant screws. They are "screwed" into the soil until they reach a stable enough layer of soil to support the house before being attached to the foundation by a bracket.

Push piers are similar except without the helical plates. They are sunk down to either bedrock or a load-bearing strata of soil before being attached to the foundation with brackets.

Crack Repair in Orange, CA

You may be tempted to run to the local DIY store and get something to repair cracks yourself. This will probably turn into a big mistake if the cause of the crack is not addressed. Foundations on the Level's experts will examine your home's crack and determine what the situation is. A crack needs to be addressed as it can let in water or pests, causing more damage and more expensive repairs down the road.

Retaining Wall Repair

Along with often being a decorative piece, retaining walls also serve an important function. They stop soil from sliding downhill.

That is why it is important to take steps to prevent your retaining wall from failing.

This begins by simply watching out for signs of failure.

Is your retaining wall buckling or tilting? Have cracks begun to appear? Is the wall pulling away from the soil behind it?

If any of these are true, it might be time to have retaining wall experts examine your wall and see if it needs to be stabilized and repaired.

One way that we can stabilize a wall is to install helical tiebacks. These products act like long screws drilled deep into the soil behind the wall. The tiebacks anchor the wall in the soil, counteracting the forces pressing outward against the wall
