Foundation Problem Signs in Cincinnati
Most foundation damage around your Cincinnati home will make itself known through several visible problem signs. These include bowing basement walls, wall cracks, floor cracks, drywall nail pops, uneven floors, sticking doors and windows, cracked bricks, and cracking and leaning chimneys. These kinds of foundation damage also are complex and can coexist and be confused with other damage. At the first sign of trouble, don’t hesitate to reach out to the foundation repair experts at Ohio Basement Authority. We will thoroughly inspect your home to accurately diagnose your foundation problems so we can install the best solution.
Foundation walls move inward primarily due to expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure on the walls from outside.
Foundation settlement and house movement can occur when a soil layer can’t support the weight of the home.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Cincinnati
Our experienced team will also pinpoint the exact causes behind your foundation damage so we can better repair and protect your foundation. While errors during the construction of your Cincinnati home can happen, the reasons your foundation is experiencing damage are rooted in the soil under and around your home. Situated in southwest Ohio along the Ohio River and Kentucky border, Cincinnati has silt loam and silty clay loam soil. It typically drains well, but if it is too well-drained, it will significantly shrink during droughts and leave gaps the foundation can sink into, or it can wash out with heavy precipitation. The 44 inches of rain and 15 inches of snow Cincinnati usually experiences keeps the soil wet, and it contributes to harmful phenomena such as the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure that result in cracks and leaks.
Backfill soil behaves differently than the unexcavated, “virgin soils” farther away from the foundation. Backfill soil typically absorbs more water and expands more, exerting pressure against the foundation.
Foundation upheaval can lift an entire structure, but more often it forces parts of a foundation or slab upwards, while other sections remain stationary.
Foundation Repair Solutions in Cincinnati
All Cincinnati homes and their foundations are unique, so each one will require its own set of foundation repair solutions. At Ohio Basement Authority, we are proud to offer repairs that are fully customizable to meet your specific needs. Your inspector will recommend piering systems – push piers, helical piers, or slab piers – if your foundation is settling, carbon fiber straps to reinforce walls with minor cracks and bowing, wall anchors or specialized wall repair beams for more severely damaged and moving walls, and crawl space supports for sagging floors and floor joists. All these products are American-made and covered by nationally backed, long-term, transferrable warranties.
The IntelliBrace, a steal beam, is a patented foundation wall repair system that’s designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential to straighten walls over time.
If you have uneven floors over your crawl space or sagging floor joists, crawl space support jacks, also known as crawl space support post, may be the solution for your home
