Foundation Repair Knoxville, TN
Whether Crawl Space or Concrete “Slab”, many are in need of foundation repair or prevention of future problems. We’ve all heard, far too many times, that the foundation of your home is the most important part. If it is solid, then the likelihood of the rest of your house remaining solid is far increased. From sagging floors from the lack of support above your Crawlspace to bowing/bulging walls and cracks in your foundation walls and floors, we have a solution for anything to do with your foundation. The causes can range from settling of soil, swelling of soil, insufficient amount and/or types of supports, improper drainage, busted plumbing, wood rot, low quality initial construction…. or a combination, and the list goes on. We can give advice and address the issue.
Let us give you a free evaluation and help make your home safe, whether that is for your own generations to come or for the generations to come for those that choose to purchase your home. We simply care about truly solving problems with the best current solutions and helping people have a better life. If we are unable to do that, we will be the first to tell you.
If you have any of these problem signs, call us for a full professional grade inspection and we can give you guidance on what is best to do next.
Bowing or Bulging Walls
Wall is Slid Inward at Top or Bottom
Stair Step or Horizontal Cracks in the Wall
If we were to pick one problem sign that most all home owners catch, it would be cracks in their foundation walls. The classic stair step crack is most common and could simply be from initial settling of the home and could be very minor, or it could be a sign of a major problem. Most of the time we can simply seal the crack since it is an avenue for moisture intrusion and further support it to assist in preventing it from growing any further.
Gaps in Mortar Joints
At this point, the problem has escalated from cracks to gaps and it certainly needs to be addressed. We also often see joints with… no mortar. You heard that correctly. No mortar at all holding, usually, cinder blocks together that are suppose to be providing a firm foundation for your home. Many people have never been, nor plan on crawling under their crawl space so it goes unseen. If cracks have now become gaps or they were just gaps from the beginning, call us.
Tilting or Leaning Chimney
Cracks in Foundation Slab
They’re unsightly. We know and we agree. But in addition to unsightly they could also be a tell tale sign of more serious foundation problems. In addition they are a path of least resistance for water and moisture intrusion as well as pest. Quite often the slab may crack after it fully drys out and shrinks from when it was first poured. Many never fix them, but it is best to have it checked out by a professional to make sure there are no underling foundation problems.
