Causes of Foundation Damage in Knoxville
The cause of the problems at your Knoxville home is most likely out of your control, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways you can put an end to the damage.
Knoxville’s weather and soil are most likely to blame for the common foundation problems at your home. Although environmental factors are frustrating, understanding why you see problems is a step in the right direction. Knoxville receives about 50 inches of rain a year, which is well above the national average. Combine the heavy precipitation with the areas loam and sandy loam soil, and the ground supporting your home can easily become unstable. As a result, it’s not uncommon for the soil beneath your home to wash out, causing settlement.
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.
Foundation Repair Solutions in Knoxville

Bowing basement walls are repaired with either carbon fiber straps, wall braces, or wall anchors, depending on the extent of the damage. While sagging floors in a crawl space are repaired with crawl space supports.
