Foundation Problem Signs in Des Moines

Foundation problems can show up in many forms. Signs that your Des Moines foundation is succumbing to hydrostatic pressure include basement wall cracks and bowing basement walls. If your foundation is settling, you’ll notice drywall cracks, drywall nail pops, and sticking windows and doors. Other symptoms to be aware of include uneven floors and leaning chimneys. At the first sign of these issues, be sure to reach out to foundation repair professionals at Foundation Recovery Systems for a free inspection and repair estimate before they have a chance to worsen.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Des Moines

Foundation issues can stem from a variety of causes, but they typically boil down to one main source – the soil your Des Moines home was built on. The silty clay loam common throughout Des Moines can be problematic and unstable, especially during times of constant rain or lack of moisture. If the summers are wet, the soil can greatly expand and develop hydrostatic pressure that presses against the basement walls with so much force that they crack, bow, and leak. If there is not enough moisture in the silty clay loam soil, it will dry out and shrink, leaving the foundation without sufficient support and causing voids the foundation can sink into.
