Foundation settlement. Foundation failure. Those words are enough to spark fear in any homeowner. Rest assured that foundation settlement and failure can be fixed by the right company using the right products.
Cracked or settling basement or crawl space foundation walls are a sign that something is going very wrong with the structural integrity of your property. These symptoms occur for several reasons:
In North and Central Georgia we have a mixed-humid climate and expansive soils. That combination can lead to foundation and footing settlement and failures. During periods of normal to high rainfall, our soils tend to expand and exert pressure on the foundation and footing. In addition, improperly managed rain water can erode the soils around and under your foundation footing.
Conversely, when we have periods of dry weather, the soil tends to contract. This pulling away can leave the footings unsupported and lead to settlement. This expansion and contraction also occurs with temperature changes. This can cause a foundation to settle more than it should and eventually fail.
