Foundation Problem Signs in Chattanooga
Foundation problems are generally easy to spot with the naked eye, but others can be tricky and go under the radar. Keep an eye out for floor cracks, wall cracks, cracking bricks, failing retaining walls, bowing basement walls, a sagging crawl space, bouncy and uneven floors, cracking and tilting chimneys, and jamming windows and doors throughout your Chattanooga home. If they are caught early enough, affordable and effective solutions can be used to fix them. But the longer these issues are left to fester, they will become worse, more dangerous, and more expensive to repair.
Foundation wall anchors can repair many bowing wall problems. Soil anchors are placed in the ground outside.
Cracked floor slabs are a very serious issue that can indicate problems with your property’s structure. Acting quickly could save you time and money.
Once a floor has been destabilized, it will deteriorate until a professional intervenes. The nature of the repairs will depend on the extent, severity, and type of damage.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Chattanooga
While the foundation of your Chattanooga home was built to be strong and sturdy, it can succumb to damage for a variety of reasons. However, the soil is often the primary cause of most problems. The majority of the soil in Chattanooga is silt loam, but there also is some clay and sand present in some areas. Although it usually drains effectively, Chattanooga’s regular precipitation can be damaging. The winter and spring months are typically the wettest, contributing to the area’s 51 inches of annual rainfall that keep the soil wet and unstable. Wet, expansive soil plays a huge part in the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure, two processes that cause foundations to crack and leak. Additionally, the foundation can settle into wet and unsupportive soil, and tree roots can shift the soil and leave voids the foundation can also sink into.
Your foundation depends on the state of its soil. If this soil expands due to too much moisture, this can easily lead to your foundation shifting, heaving or cracking apart.
Your home’s foundation is only as strong as its soil. Loose soil can easily contribute to foundation damage if you don’t take steps to protect it.
Cracked drywall, window gaps, and basement wall cracks are all potential signs of foundation settlement that should not be ignored.
