Foundation Problem Signs in Minneapolis
Numerous problems with your Minneapolis home’s foundation can arise over time. Basement wall cracks, bowing basement walls, and failing retaining walls are indications that your foundation is giving way to hydrostatic pressure. You’ll notice drywall cracks, drywall nail pops, and sticking windows and doors if your foundation is settling. Uneven floors and tilting chimneys are additional warning signs to be aware of. Before these problems have a chance to get worse, more dangerous, and more expensive to fix, contact the foundation repair specialists at Innovative Basement Authority for a free inspection and repair estimate as soon as you see any of these problems.
Foundation walls move inward primarily due to expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure on the walls from outside. However, foundation walls may also crack due to many other outside causes, including foundation settlement.
Sinking, cracked, and depressed concrete floors and slabs are not just unattractive, but they can be dangerous as well.
A settling foundation often indicates significant damage that must be repaired right away. Learn more about identifying and solving problems related to foundation sinking and settlement.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Minneapolis
Although there are many different causes of foundation problems, they usually have one common denominator: the soil that your Minneapolis house is standing on. The loamy soil common throughout Minneapolis has varied silt, sand, and clay properties. This soil can be problematic when there is too much or not enough moisture present. Particularly during spring snowmelt and summer rains, the soil can significantly expand and create hydrostatic pressure that exerts so much force on the basement walls that they bow, crack, and leak. The soil will shrink and dry up during times of drought or lack of moisture, providing the foundation with insufficient support and creating gaps into which the foundation might sink.
The soils around your foundation can put a lot of pressure on your foundation walls. The effects of these expansive soils on your foundation walls can be cataclysmic if you do not take measures to protect your property.
The soil under your property’s foundation is incredibly important to the health of the overall structure of your home. Ingredients like sand, silt, loam, and clay determine how soils behave under wet and dry conditions and when they need to support weight.
Drought or persistent soil dryness can cause severe damage to your home’s foundation. While the damages may not be readily apparent above ground, you can bet the soil is shifting below ground. As moisture declines, subtle and then more significant signs of damage to homes, roads, driveways, sidewalks, and patios will start to appear. That […]
Foundation Repair Solutions in Minneapolis
Every home in Minneapolis has a different foundation and its own unique challenges. Therefore, every property requires a different approach to repair. With a variety of customizable, warranty-backed solutions, Innovative Basement Authority is happy to assist in regaining the stability of your home’s foundation. These include carbon fiber straps, specialized wall repair beams, and wall anchors for needed wall repairs.
