Foundation Problem Signs in Greenville

Your foundation is crucial to the stability of your Charleston house. As your foundation deteriorates, various warning signs can help you figure out what’s wrong. Both inside and outside the house, you may notice wall cracks forming or nails popping out of the drywall. You may also notice that your home’s floors are detaching from the floorboards. As the walls of your home shift, doors and windows may become more difficult to open. Greenville’s annual rain and humidity only make these problems worse as they cause your foundation to sink below the soil.

Bowing Walls

Foundation walls move inward primarily due to expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure on the walls from outside.

Drywall Nail Pops

If your foundation becomes damaged, the walls in your home may begin to shift. This can cause nails to pop out of wall studs and put holes in your drywall.

Collapsing Retaining Walls

Retaining walls serve to retain the lateral pressure of soil. More simply, retaining walls are used to hold back soil and substrate from moving due to the effects of gravity and erosion

Floor and Wall Gaps

Almost every structure in your home depends on the health of your foundation. When your foundation gets damaged, so do important structures such as walls and floors.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Greenville

Greenville’s close proximity to the Appalachian Mountains and Piedmont Plateau makes it highly susceptible to rainfall. Unfortunately, rain leads to weakened soil as the moisture saturates the ground and causes the soil to become soft and muddy. Furthermore, heavy rains can cause faulty drainpipes and gutters to overflow, spilling even more water close to your foundation. No matter how moisture gets into the diverse sandy clay loam or rocky soil below your foundation, it will cause settlement and problems for your home.

Causes Of Settlement

There are many factors that can contribute to a shifting foundation. The most common of these factors are unstable soils, poor drainage and plumbing leaks, poor grading or compaction and tree roots.

Foundation Soils

Soils are composed of different ingredients like sand, silt, loam and clay. These ingredients determine how soils behave under wet and dry conditions and when they need to support weight.

Fill soil

Improper Grading

When the filled in land has been improperly compacted, foundation issues can arise. Back-filled soils are not necessarily unstable.

Foundation Repair Solutions in Greenville

All our methods prevent wet soil from causing problems for your foundation.  Mount Valley utilizes piers to transfer the weight of your concrete slab foundation from the soil and onto the piers. All our piers are inserted into deep soils like bedrock, which aren’t affected by high moisture levels in Greenville. Steel crawl space supports prevent sagging or uneven floors brought on by wood rot.  Finally, we also use wall repair systems for basement walls that crack due to draining rainwater below the ground.
