Common Foundation Problems in New Jersey
When it comes to foundation problems, there are some things that we know to look for that are obvious signs something is wrong with your home. Please look at the following list of potential foundation problems you could have. If you want to have our foundation repair experts inspect your foundation, contact us by calling 732-430-2026 or fill out our online contact form.
A common sign of a foundation settlement problem can be cracks that have formed in your brickwork or caulking. Cracks on brickwork are more prominent and show up as stairstep cracks, while cracks on caulking around windows and doors may be less noticeable. If you have noticed these cracks forming or have had them fixed previously, it could mean that your foundation walls have begun to sink or shift. This is a sign of foundation settlement; you should contact our foundation repair experts at First Choice Waterproofing immediately for an inspection.
Offset or uneven cracks in your foundation wall are a common sign that there could be an underlying structural problem with your foundation. Several factors cause these cracks, including hydrostatic pressure and foundation settlement. Offset cracks are generally proof that your walls have moved, and your foundation should be inspected by a trained professional. Our team usually uses bowed wall repair techniques to fix foundation wall cracks that are offset.
There are many reasons why cracks form in your walls or ceilings. We become concerned when there are large cracks or entire wall cracks on the main level of your home. If you have noticed cracks in your drywall on the main floor, it is a sign that your home is settling, and you need foundation repair immediately. If left untreated, your home could become unlivable and structurally unsafe.
Sticky Doors or Windows
Doors and windows aren’t meant to stick when opening or shutting. Sticky windows and doors are a sign that the frame has become uneven. This is caused by foundation settlement; as the home becomes unstable the window frames and door jambs will tighten, causing hard-to-open windows and doors. These problems are repaired with one of our foundation repair methods.
Chimney settlement occurs when the base of your chimney is unstable. It will appear as if your chimney is pulling away from your home and can be easily spotted from the outside. A settling chimney can be a severe hazard to anyone on your property. If you have chimney settlement, contact our experts immediately.
Bowed or leaning basement walls are a common sign of foundation failure for New Jersey Homes. If your basement or foundation walls are leaning or bowed, you need to immediately have a professional foundation inspection. If left untreated bowed walls can collapse inward due to excess pressure from the soil outside of your home. This will cause thousands more in damage than installing a bowed wall repair system.
