Foundation Problem Signs in Durham

Many symptoms indicating your Durham home’s foundation is damaged will manifest as visible problem signs. These include wall cracks, cracked bricks, drywall nail pops, cracking and leaning chimneys, sagging floors, bowing walls, and sticking windows and doors. It’s important to keep your eyes peeled for these telltale issues and seek professional assistance from Tar Heel as soon as possible. The longer these problems continue, the more dangerous they will become for your family and home. But catching them early enough allows effective, affordable solutions to be used for permanent stabilization. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Durham

Various factors can cause your foundation damage, but most of them stem from external forces like Durham’s soil and weather conditions. North Carolina is famous for its clay soil, but areas like Durham and the Research Triangle in the northern part of the state also have a clay and sand mix. Clay is an expansive soil that dramatically swells when wet and shrinks when dry, and sand is generally well-drained. If the soil is inundated with water, which can happen because of the area’s 46 inches of annual rainfall, it can wash away or expand so much that it exerts a great amount of hydrostatic pressure on the foundation. On the other hand, if the soil lacks moisture due to dry conditions or invasive tree roots have shifted the soil, it will sink and result in voids the foundation also can settle into.  

Foundation Repair Solutions in Durham

Your Durham home is unique in many ways, as is your foundation. Something that is a one-size-fits-all, DIY fix does not guarantee permanent repair and stabilization. At Tar Heel, we offer a variety of fully customizable foundation repair solutions to meet the needs of your particular foundation. Foundation piers, whether helical piers, push piers, or slab piers, will be used to permanently stabilize and help lift your settling foundation. If your crawl space floors and floor joists are sagging, support posts will function the same way. If your Durham home happens to have a basement, carbon fiber straps, wall beams, and wall anchors will be used to reinforce cracking and bowing walls. All these solutions are American-made and carry long-term, nationally backed warranties.

Why Choose Tar Heel Basement Systems?

Wall cracks are more than just cosmetic issues. They could mean something serious is happening below the surface and impacting the foundation of your Durham home. Getting to the bottom of these problems and repairing them sooner rather than later is crucial for your home’s value, safety, and longevity. 

The best way to do that is with professional assistance from Tar Heel Basement Systems. Our award-winning, locally and nationally recognized service and solutions have been trusted by Durham homeowners for 20 years. We can help you too.
