Foundation Problem Signs in Baltimore
Foundation problems can be complex, but there are signs you can look for inside and outside your Baltimore home to get an idea of your foundation’s condition. These include drywall nail pops, drywall cracks, cracking basement walls, bowing basement walls, uneven floors, and sticking windows and doors throughout your home’s interior. Outside your house, keep an eye out for cracked bricks, cracking and leaning chimneys, and sinking, uneven foundations. When in doubt, contact our experts for a free foundation inspection.
Bowed basement walls are caused by too much pressure pushing against your basement walls, and are a serious foundation concern.
If your foundation becomes damaged, the walls in your home may begin to shift. This can cause nails to pop out of wall studs and put holes in your drywall.
Ground sinking near your home’s foundation indicates that you have a serious foundation problem.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Baltimore
Like many things, foundations can break down over time or may have been built without proper materials or attention. Any number of factors can affect the foundation of your Baltimore home, but the common cause behind most forms of foundation damage lies beneath your home. The soil underneath and surrounding your house needs to provide a stable base for the foundation. Baltimore’s loam soil with varied silty, clay, and gravelly properties can become unstable, especially when contending with the area’s 42 inches of annual rainfall.
Deep foundations have to support the entire structure of the home, as well as combat the immense pressure applied by the surrounding soil. Weather can also cause this pressure to change and shift, as well as alter the stability of the soil supporting the basement foundation.
The soils around your foundation can put a lot of pressure on your foundation walls!
Severe drought can be the downfall of your Virginia or Maryland foundation, causing differential settlement and prepping the stage for water problems down the line. JES is here to help.
Foundation Repair Solutions in Baltimore
Depending on the type of foundation your Baltimore home has, as well as the extent of any damage, your foundation and home can benefit from any number of repair solutions. At JES, we are proud to offer solutions that are fully customizable to your home’s unique repair needs. These include various pieiring systems (helical piers, push piers, and slab piers), wall repair systems (wall anchors, wall repair beams, and carbon fiber supports), and crawl space supports.
The IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Floor Support system provides solid support for sagging and undersized beams, restoring stability and straightness to sagging floor joists in a crawl space.
The IntelliBrace™ System is a patented foundation wall repair system that’s designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential to straighten walls over time.
