Foundation Repair in Brightwood, VA

wall crack

Structural problems with your home aren't things that you should ignore. Instead, you need to be sure that you get in touch with a repair expert ASAP to diagnose the problem and get it fixed immediately before even more damage is done. Regardless of how old or new your home may be, it can still have structural problems because of concrete shrinkage or from the soil shifting around the foundation. This can lead to settlement problems or bowing walls. What's more is that wall or floor cracks could form below your home. Choose to ignore them and they will likely start to leak.

Many homeowners call us and want to know about the warning signs of a foundation problem. Look below to see some of the indications that you could have a structural problem:

  • Windows and doors don't open or close like they once did
  • Wall and floor cracks develop in the basement of the home
  • Cracks form along window and door frames
  • Bowing walls appear in the basement
  • Leaks start coming in through the cove joint (where the basement floor meets the wall)
  • Noticeable sinking is seen on one or more sides of the home
  • Basement floor feels sloped in certain spots

Foundation Crack Repair

Floor and wall cracks can develop in various sizes, short and long, and in a few different patterns. They are often developed in stair-step, vertical, or horizontal patterns. Regardless of what these cracks look like, they need to be filled with a special epoxy material by our professionals. We will clean the surface of the crack, and then fill it up from the soil to the surface. This technique is very useful and effective. It will seal the crack and stop water from ever getting into your home. Once dry, the crack and epoxy can be painted over if need be.
