Foundation Problem Signs in Dayton

Foundation damage can be intricate and complicated. Many problems like bowing basement walls, wall cracks, and uneven floors are visibly noticeable. Others such as sagging crawl spaces, foundation settlement and sinking, uneven floors, cracking and leaning chimneys, drywall nail pops, and sticking windows and doors can often go undetected and be tied to other issues. For help with identifying what ails your Dayton foundation, reach out to our team of experienced foundation specialists for a free and comprehensive inspection. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Dayton

Your Dayton home’s foundation problems might be caused by a variety of factors. However, the soil is the source of the majority of the causes. Dayton, located in southwest Ohio and bordered by the Mad, Miami, and Stillwater rivers, has mostly silty soil with some areas of silty loam, silty clay, and sandy loam. Whether it is during a drought or wetter times like spring snowmelt or summer rains, these soils are prone to instability. Dayton normally receives 40 inches of rain and 17 inches of snow per year.  The area’s unstable, expansive, and moist soil causes phenomena like the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure that create cracking, bowing, and leaking foundations.  

Foundation Repair Solutions in Dayton

Your Dayton home’s foundation will benefit from solutions tailored to meet its unique repair needs. At Ohio Basement Authority, we offer a variety of permanent solutions depending on your foundation type and the extent of damage. Piering or underpinning methods including helical piers, push piers, and slab piers will permanently reinforce your settling foundation, as well as potentially lift it. For cracking and bowing walls, wall anchors or specialized wall repair beams will help restore walls over time, and carbon fiber supports will hold walls in their current positions. Sagging floors and floor joists will be stabilized and lifted with adjustable crawl space support posts. All the products we install are made in the United States and protected by comprehensive, long-term, nationally backed, transferrable warranties.
