Foundation Problem Signs in Columbus
Generally, foundation problem signs are easy to spot. When foundation damage has occurred, your Columbus, GA, home will quickly show physical symptoms. These include wall cracks, uneven floors, bowing foundation walls, collapsed retaining wall, sagging crawl space, sticking doors and windows, and settlement sinking. Unfortunately, these issues won’t be resolved on their own and will only get worse over time. If you notice any of these problem signs, it’s best to contact the foundation repair professionals at AFS to quickly fix the damage.
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 Columbus
While there are numerous reasons for foundation damage, the most common causes originate from Georgia’s famous red clay soil and humid weather – both of which are present in Columbus. Moisture causes clay soil to expand in size, which puts stress on your home’s foundation. Moreover, Spring in Columbus brings with it more rainfall, which causes the clay soil to expand further. On average, Columbus receives 49 inches of rain every year. That means expansive soil is a major cause of foundation damage in the area. Believe it or not, tree roots are also to blame for foundation damage. As the roots grow below your home, they can exert pressure on your foundation or even burst through foundation walls. Roots might also suck moisture from the soil and dry it out. Dry soil is too weak to support your foundation, so your home eventually sinks into the ground without adequate support.
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.
