Foundation Problem Signs in Savannah

If your foundation is damaged, there will be several problem signs you should be able to notice with your naked eye. Cracked walls, bowing walls, and sticking doors and windows are all major signs that your foundation is in need of repair. It’s important to be aware of these signs, as ignoring them can put your home’s structural stability at risk. Due to the wet climate and expansive clay soils of the area, foundation settlement is common in the area.  

Bowing Foundation Wall

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 Savannah

There are a multitude of causes of foundation damage. Excavated soil that was removed during your home’s construction is used to fill in the gaps between the foundation walls and the earth. This time, it is looser and more water absorbent. This creates a “clay bowl” that causes water to gather. This leads to hydrostatic pressure and puts pressure against your foundation, creating cracks and additional damage. The “clay bowl effect” is very common in Savannah due to the widespread clay soils. 

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.
