Delayed Foundation Work Can Have Dire Consequences
"Minor" Moisture Issues Don't Stay Minor For Long
Littleton may not receive much rain, but snowfall can hurt your foundation too. Water seeps into the soil surrounding your home, and when it re-freezes, the expansion can put pressure on your foundation walls. Then in the spring, the water is released -- this may add extra strain on your foundation, cause leaks and cracks, or lead to mustiness and mold.
That said, if you have noticed leaking or dampness in your basement, give us a call. At this point, the fixes are still relatively simple; we may recommend a more effective gutter and downspout system, high quality extension, minor grading of the soil around your property, a french drain, or another drainage and ventilation system below your foundation. If you have a crack in your foundation leading to leaks, we can sometimes utilize a simple epoxy injection fix if the wall is still structurally sound.
Ignoring dampness and mustiness can have consequences that are far more expensive to fix. Chronic stress from water may lead to warped and damaged walls, rotten beams and joists, soil erosion (causing shifting and sinking of the foundation), mold, mildew, and even attract pests. If you have the opportunity to fix your water problem before it gets out of hand, we strongly recommend doing so.
Bowed and Warped Walls May Become Dangerous or Lead to HVAC Issues
If your foundation has shifted to the point where the walls, floors or ceilings are warped or cracked, it may be time for more aggressive measures. A foundation with significant cracks or warps could be dangerous, and ceilings that dip are another sign that you have real damage. Doors may swing open on their own, drafts and window problems may cause HVAC inefficiencies, and more.
That said, cracks and warping can also occur due to poor framework on your house. We will carefully inspect all of the structural components of your home, and we won't start on a foundation project until we are sure that is the root cause of your home's symptoms.
Are Foundation Repairs in Littleton Always a Big Project?
No, foundation repairs or maintenance are not always a huge project. You may have caught the problem when simple drainage systems and a freshly graded property will fix the pressure on your foundation. There are also times when a couple of steel I-beams, wooden replacement joists, shimming on top of a concrete piering system, or carbon fiber strips on your foundation wall will do the job. We will be honest with you if we can restore your home's structural integrity with minor repairs.
But there are times when more advanced foundation work is required. We may need to deepen and expand your foundation by digging under and around the foundation, pouring new layers of concrete, and distributing the weight from your home more broadly (the "mass concrete" process). Or we may need to completely rebuild a concrete pier in a home with a pier and beam piling foundation. This would require us to add temporary supports while we pour new concrete.
There are also specialized situations where it becomes necessary to drive piles directly under the home into more solid earth to stabilize (or even lift) a home.
Whether your home needs simple moisture mitigation or more advanced underpinning fixes, we will give you a realistic picture of the work that needs to be done, and execute it professionally.
