If your home is starting to feel like a carnival fun house then you may want to have your foundation checked. If the walls, floors, doors and windows are starting to warp and your home feels unstable and unpredictable, it’s time to call in a general contractor. The longer you wait to fix potential foundation and structural problems within your home or business, the more dangerous it becomes and the more expensive it will be to repair.
Causes of foundation settlement and movement
Moisture levels in the soil under your foundation can cause serious problems if the foundation slab doesn’t settle evenly. Some settlement is perfectly natural, but pay close attention, the sooner you catch foundation problems, the easier it will be to fix. The type of settlement in your foundation that will lead to repairs may be caused by:
- Building on expansive clay
- Building on improperly compacted soils
- Poor maintenance of the surrounding foundation area
- Excess weight from original construction
