Foundation Problem Signs in Chapel Hill

Foundation damage typically shows itself in the form of various visible problem signs. Floor cracks, wall cracks, cracking bricks, cracking and leaning chimneys, bowing walls, jamming windows and doors, sagging floors, and drywall nail pops are common symptoms you will spot throughout your Chapel Hill home. Staying alert to these issues is key, as quickly catching them and having them professionally repaired allows effective, affordable solutions to be used. Otherwise, these issues will grow in severity, danger, and cost the longer they continue. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Chapel Hill

Many factors contribute to foundation damage, but Chapel Hill’s soil and weather are the sources of most of these causes. Chapel Hill is humid and wet, and most of the area’s 46 inches of annual rain falls during muggy summer months. This water keeps the soil saturated, but droughts often affect the area, as well. Chapel Hill has a mix of clay and sandy soil with varied drainage properties. Sand usually drains well, but if it is too well-drained and dry, it will shrink and leave behind voids the foundation can settle into. Areas with more clay will experience hydrostatic pressure as the soil expands when it is oversaturated. Your yard also may have trees with aggressive roots that move through and shift the soil. Any unstable soil will not properly support your foundation, and it will begin to suffer damage.

Foundation Repair Solutions in Chapel Hill

Foundation repair is unique to each Chapel Hill home, as every house is different and has its own unique repair needs. All the foundation repair solutions we offer are tailored to meet those exact needs. They are also made in the United States and carry nationally backed, long-term, transferrable warranties. If your foundation is settling, we use pier systems – push piers, helical piers, or slab piers – to stabilize and help lift it. Crawl space supports function similarly to repair sagging floors and floor joists. Basements aren’t as common, but if you have cracking and bowing basement walls, carbon fiber straps will reinforce them, and wall anchors or wall beams can help restore them.
