Your foundation most likely won’t become a major issue overnight. However, there are several warning signs that might appear minor at first but can lead to serious problems if you don’t deal with them right away. These include tiny cracks in your basement’s walls, puddles of water forming after heavy storms or doors that get stuck in their frames.
Depending on the nature and severity of your property’s foundation issues, there are many different techniques for resolving them. Some of these, such as steel piles, helical piers, micropiles, are relatively complex procedures and generally are used for major repairs. Other methods, including slab jacking, epoxy injection and stitch welding, are less involved and handle minor fixes.

Some of the most common indicators of trouble with your foundation include uneven floors, cracks appearing in your brickwork, doors and windows that don’t open easily, and spaces that appear between your wall and floor. Any of these could be an early warning sign that your foundation needs expert attention ASAP.
There are a number of reasons why your foundation might be starting to shift or sink. One of the most common of these is heavy clay content in the soil underneath it. This can move around as seasonal changes impact the ground, exerting pressure on your foundation. Another frequent culprit is soil that is either too moist or too dry. The moisture content of the soil can impact its ability to support your structure. This means leaky plumbing or inadequate drainage around your property also can lead to problems with your foundation.
Although cracks in your foundation can look scary, the truth is not all of them are serious. If you see tiny, hairline cracks appearing in your basement walls, for example, they could be caused by the concrete shrinking slightly during the curing process. However, it’s best to have experts come in to assess any cracks you see in case they’re a sign of something more troublesome.
If you notice cracks that are more than a tenth of an inch in width, are wider at one end than at the other or appear to be completely horizontal, chances are they’re a sign of a big problem that needs to be addressed. If you notice water leaking into your structure from a crack, that should be taken as another indicator that you have an issue.
In essence, any cracks that appear wider than a hairline should be taken as seriously as possible. Other cracks you shouldn’t ignore include those that can be seen on the exterior foundation wall as well as inside and those that appear in groups. If you notice anything like these anywhere in your foundation, it’s time to call in the experts to help you deal with them.
