Foundation Repair in Charlottesville, VA

If your home’s foundation needs repair, you can count on the experts at JES Foundation Repair to get the job done right the first time. To ensure that your home is structurally sound even if it is built on unstable soils in a rainy environment, our company provides unique solutions that are built to last. When it comes to foundation repair in Charlottesville, there are a number of factors at play, including the climate and the type of soil. Most of the soil in the Charlottesville area has a top layer of silty loam with a silty clay subsoil, leaving the top layer vulnerable to soil erosion and the bottom layer vulnerable to expansion.

Foundation Problem Signs in Charlottesville

Your home’s foundation is especially vulnerable to deterioration because of the humid climate and frequent rainfall found in Charlottesville and surrounding areas. When your home’s foundation is damaged, you should be aware of a wide range of problems that can occur. Cracks in your basement, along your chimney, and on your house’s outside brickwork are all symptoms that your foundation is settling.

Bowing Walls

Bowed basement walls are caused by too much pressure pushing against your basement walls, and are a serious foundation concern.

Drywall Nail Pops

Drywall Nail Pops

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.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Charlottesville

Damage to a foundation can be caused by many different things. For instance, soil erosion produced by a weak upper layer of dirt also damages your foundation as it sinks and settles into unstable soil. Depending on how much rain falls, the silty loam or silty clay soil below may also expand and contract, causing even more instability around your foundation. Because there are different types of soil in the area, being knowledgeable about both is very helpful.

Cracked brick

Deep Foundations

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.

Bowed Basement-Wall

Expansive Soil

The soils around your foundation can put a lot of pressure on your foundation walls!

Drought

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.
