The end of August is here, and it can be easy to feel as though the pool parties, sleepovers, and late-night games with the family are coming to an end as your children head back to school. Did you get everything done this summer that you had planned?

Signs You Need Foundation Repair
You can check out our post on signs it’s time for foundation repair for a helpful infographic and a more in-depth explanation, but here are some signs to look out for:
- Visible cracks
- Unexplained gaps
- Uneven, sloping floors
- Unstable chimney
- Sticking doors
- Sunken floors
- Wet basement
- Bowed basement walls
Improperly placed downspout extensions are one of the most common causes our foundation contractors see of foundation damage. Without downspout extensions — or with downspout extensions that aren’t doing their job correctly — water isn’t directed away from your foundation. This can lead to all of the problems you might expect from water seeping into your foundation. You can keep water a safe distance away from your home and protect the current and future safety of your foundation when you turn to us for downspout extensions and foundation repair!
If you have unstable floors, you’re most likely going to face other foundation problems in the future. To repair the instability, prevent future damage, and ensure safety in your home, floor supports could be the answer. This could be the result of a heavy weight being added to your floor (such as a large bookcase or piano) or it could be because one of the supporting columns under the floor has rotted or cracked.
Finally, bowed walls are another problem our foundation contractors frequently handle. If you have a bowed wall in your home, you’ll most likely see a horizontal crack about halfway down the wall as a result of the built-up hydrostatic pressure. We’ll strengthen and straighten the wall at the same time so we treat the cause and not just the symptom. You can count on our team for foundation repair!
