Foundation Problem Signs in Columbia

Foundation damage can be identified through a few common problem signs. First, your walls depend on the stability of your home’s foundation. Look out for wall cracks or drywall nail pops throughout your home. If you notice either of these issues, foundation damage has likely occurred. Next, see if the floors of your home have become uneven and caused gaps to open up between the floorboards. This problem sign also indicates major foundation damage. Additionally, as your floors and walls shift, door and windows may become harder to open. This because their frames become crooked as your foundation shifts. All these issues can be exacerbated by the wet environment of Columbia.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Columbia

Foundation damage mostly occurs due to weak soil below your foundation. The area’s mix of sand and clay soils can become weak with lack of moisture, over exposure to moisture, and poor compaction. Occasionally, the Carolinas are prone to dry periods. This can cause soil to dry out and crack. If the soil is too dry, it also shrinks in volume and a gap opens between the foundation and the soil, causing the foundation to sink. When soil becomes too wet, the soil can rapidly expand, erode, and wash away. Since rain and humidity is quite common in Columbia, homeowners should stay vigilant for this particular issue. Lastly, poor compaction may occur during the construction of a new home. When soil is not packed tightly enough, it becomes too weak to support the weight of any foundation.

Foundation Repair Solutions in Columbia

Since problematic sandy or clay soil is the main cause for foundation damage, all of our solutions remove soil from the equation. For concrete slab foundations, Mount Valley uses piers systems to properly redistribute the weight of your foundation. All our piers take advantage of deep, unmovable soils below the surface to provide this strength. For crawl space foundations, we have a steel crawl space support system that controls sagging floors brought on by the high humidity of Columbia. Lastly, we have wall supports for basement walls that may experience bowing as a result of draining water from Columbia’s regular rainfall.
