THE TAR HEEL BASEMENT SYSTEMS PROCESS
Foundation Problems in Northern North Carolina
When your foundation is damaged, you will easily be able to spot various problem signs throughout your Northern North Carolina home. Keep an eye out for wall cracks, floor cracks, drywall nail pops, cracked bricks, cracking and leaning chimneys, bowing basement walls, uneven floors, and sticking windows and doors. Don’t panic when you see these red flags, but take note and contact Tar Heel right away to schedule a free inspection. If these issues continue, they will get worse, become more dangerous for your family to be around, and cost more to fix in the long run.
Bowing walls in your foundation and basement put the stability of your home at risk. Learn what signs to look out for and how you can repair them with expert assistance.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Northern North Carolina
Most causes behind your foundation problems stem from outside forces, namely Northern North Carolina’s weather and soil conditions. The soil throughout the area is varied and includes rocky types as well as expansive clay like Cecil soil. These soils often cannot handle the copious amounts of precipitation northern and mountainous locations receive, and they can become wet and soft, allowing the foundation to settle into the unstable soil. The soil also can wash away with heavy rain, as well as shrink during particularly dry periods. When voids form due to shrinking or tree root movement, the foundation also can sink into them. Excessive hydrostatic pressure created by overly saturated expansive soil also results in cracking, inwardly moving walls.
Can Trees Damage Your Foundation?
Trees that grow too close to your home or that have invasive root systems can start to compromise your foundation’s structural integrity.
Drought and Your Foundation
Drought can affect the soil under your home causing major foundation issues.
Foundation Repair Solutions in Northern North Carolina
Foundation repair is specific to each Northern North Carolina home and its foundation. That is why we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions to address several issues faced by homes in the area. To address foundation settlement by permanently stabilizing and potentially lifting the foundation, we will use pier systems such as helical piers, push piers, or slab piers. Crawl space supports function similarly to reinforce and help lift sagging floors and floor joists. Cracking and bowing walls will benefit from carbon fiber supports, specialized wall beams, or wall anchors. All these American-made solutions are customizable and backed by long-lasting warranties.
Strong and stable. Our pier system will permanently solve your foundation settlement problem.
