THE FOUNDATION RECOVERY SYSTEMS PROCESS
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.
Few problems are quite as severe as bowed walls. This is a situation that only gets worse over time, so it’s important to address it now.
Cracked And Tilting Chimney
Poor soil may no longer be able to bear the weight of the chimney, causing the chimney to settle and pull away from the rest of the structure.
Drywall Nail Pops
Nail pops happen when the head of a drywall screw or nail literally “pops” through the wall and paint
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.
Expansive soils can have all sorts of serious impacts on your foundation and the home at large. What should you know about expansive soils?
Foundation settlement is a serious issue that can decrease the value of your home and lower its integrity.
Hydrostatic pressure is one of the most serious problems your foundation might deal with. How can you manage hydrostatic pressure around your home?
Foundation Repair Solutions in Des Moines
Every house in Des Moines has a different foundation and problems to deal with, which is why every home needs unique repair solutions. We at Foundation Recovery Systems are pleased to provide a range of options to help restore the stability of your home’s foundation including wall anchors, specialty wall repair beams, and carbon fiber straps. Depending on the type and extent of the damage to your foundation, we can install helical piers, push piers, or slab piers to alleviate foundation settlement.
Crawl Space Support Posts
There are several options when it comes to reinforcing a sagging crawl space. Foundation Recovery Systems recommends the use of the IntelliJack™ crawl space support posts, which are designed specifically for this purpose.
Piering systems offer a below-grade solution that’s concealed from sight. Not only that, in many cases, a piering system can go beyond merely stabilizing a foundation to actually lifting it up back toward its original position.
IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System
When wall anchors and carbon fiber straps are not viable options for wall reinforcement, the IntelliBrace™ System will not let you down.
