Foundation Problem Signs in Columbus

Foundation damage is often complex. There are several evident problem signs you will notice such as wall cracks, bowing basement walls, and uneven floors. Others, including cracking and leaning chimneys, sticking doors and windows, drywall nail pops, and foundation settlement, can go unnoticed yet be indicative of more serious issues. Foundation damage will merely worsen, become more dangerous, and be more expensive to fix over time. If you’re in doubt, contact your local Ohio Basement Authority foundation repair specialists to thoroughly evaluate your Columbus home’s foundation. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Columbus

Your Columbus home’s foundation problems might result from a variety of factors. However, the most common causes stem from the soil.  Columbus’ soil is primarily silty, but it also contains some degrees of clay and sand. It may or may not quickly drain water from the region’s frequent precipitation. Columbus experiences 40 inches of rain and 22 inches of snowfall annually, so the soil is typically wet and unstable. Unsteady, expanding, moist soil exacerbates the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure, two phenomena that cause foundations to crack and leak. 

Foundation Repair Solutions in Columbus

Depending on the kind of foundation your Columbus house has, the extent of the damage, and other factors, your home will benefit from a number of foundation repair solutions. If the foundation is settling, piering or underpinning methods like helical piers, push piers, or slab piers will be installed to stabilize and possibly lift the structure. Carbon fiber straps will reinforce cracking and bowing walls, and wall anchors or specialized wall repair beams can straighten walls over time. Additionally, crawl space support posts will stabilize and help lift sagging floors and floor joists. Everything we install is customizable, made in the United States, and protected by transferrable, long-term, nationally backed warranties.
