The ground may feel solid under your feet, but there are constantly changes happening underneath. Soil erosion and movement occur so gradually that it is hard to notice, but over time this can have serious implications for your foundation as well as your home or building. A pier and beam foundation can lose its structural integrity and stability when it starts to sink or settle due to the changes to the ground around your property. This is quite frequently the cause of foundation damage and the need for structural repairs. In order to restore the strength and stability of your foundation, it may be necessary to fill dirt under the home to replace the soil that has eroded away, or raise or re-level the house. When the problem becomes serious enough, there will be many indicators that point to a foundation problem. Issues such as sagging or bouncy floors, floor cracks, or wall cracks are all common signs of sinking or settlement. If you suspect that your foundation is compromised, contact Foundation Repair Louisiana for a foundation inspection.
Slanted or sloping floors can indicate that a house or building is no longer level due to sinking or settling. This is a foundation issue, and may have much more far reaching effects if not dealt with properly in a timely manner. As with any foundation concern, it is advisable to contact a foundation consultant as soon as possible for a foundation inspection and potential repairs or remediation. This easy step can help to prevent much more costly and devastating damage to your property in the future. To address sinking or settlement problems, house raising leveling may be required.
