Symptoms of Foundation Problems

  • Interior doors that are jammed or uneven
  • Cracks in your interior walls
  • Floors that squeak or bounce when you walk on them

Why Floors Start to Slope

Usually, floor problems are caused by settling and shifting in your home’s foundation. The soil under it eventually begins to sink under the weight of your home. When this issue becomes severe, the floor beams and joists bend or break, no longer providing adequate support for the floors above them. The beams and joists can also rot because of water damage, causing the same effect.

The Real Dirt on Foundation Problems

Foundation problems happen for four unavoidable reasons: overly dry soil, oversaturated soil, poorly compacted soil, and the type of soil around your home. Each of these, or a combination of these, leads to things like foundation settlement, foundation heave, and a multitude of other symptoms that happen due to structural problems.
