Foundation Problems

Our team has seen it all. Homes with untreated foundation problems always end up with even more things to fix. With our years of experience and specialized knowledge, we can identify every kind of foundation failure symptom and determine the best solution to permanently correct it.

Why Foundations Fail?

Some of the most common reasons for foundation issues are weather and soil. During the winter months, Montana and Wyoming experience frost heave, causing volume changes in the soil around your home. Prolonged exposure to this process creates pressure around your foundation walls, leading to damage every year.

Foundation problems, like foundation settlement, happen because of four unavoidable reasons: overly dry soil, oversaturated soil, poorly compacted soil, and the type of soil around your home.

Signs of Bowing Walls?

When your home’s foundation begins to fail, one of the most obvious signs is bowing walls. Basement walls that appear to be leaning inward indicate a serious foundation problem. The soil around your home that becomes overly saturated with water can become susceptible to hydrostatic pressure. When this happens, foundation walls buckle under the force and create other forms of damage in your home. If you see any of these symptoms, it’s imperative that you get a professional diagnosis as soon as possible:

  • “Stair-step” foundation wall cracks
  • Diagonal foundation wall cracks
  • Walls leaning in at the top or bottom
  • Walls bulging inward
When Foundation Cracks Indicate a Problem?

One of the most noticeable signs of foundation settlement is visible cracks in your foundation walls. However, not all foundation wall cracks are bad - some are even normal. How can you tell the difference? The crack's location, direction, and size are all factors to consider.

Poured concrete foundations are often subject to shrinkage cracks. These cracks occur while the concrete cures. They typically happen within the first year of construction, and usually do not change or get worse. However, if you notice cracks that grow longer or wider over time, it’s likely that your foundation is settling. If you see any of the following, it’s time to call a foundation expert for further inspection:

  • Cracks with “stair-step” patterns
  • Diagonal foundation wall cracks
  • Horizontal foundation wall cracks
  • Excessively large cracks that change or get worse
What Your Damaged Floors Mean?

Floor problems in your home aren’t something to be ignored. While some cases may be chalked up to poor wood quality, moisture damage, or termites, many warped or cracked floors indicate a failing foundation.

  • Uneven Floors
  • Sloping Floors
  • Floor Cracks
  • Foundation Slab Settlement
