Foundation Repair in Northern Virginia
Your home’s foundation has some big shoes to fill if you live in Washington, DC, or Northern Virginia. It must sustain the whole house and all its contents.

This will help put your foundation back on solid ground.
THE JES PROCESS
Foundation Problem Signs in Northern Virginia
Numerous problem signs with the foundation of your home in Washington, DC, or Northern Virginia may arise over time. Basement wall cracks and bowing basement walls are indicators that the foundation of your home is giving way to hydrostatic pressure. You’ll notice drywall cracks, drywall nail pops, and sticking doors and windows if your foundation is settling. Additionally, uneven floors and leaning chimneys are further warning signs to be aware of. Contact our foundation repair specialists for a free inspection and repair estimate as soon as you notice any of these problems to prevent them from getting worse.
Stuck Windows and Doors
If you’re unsure if a stuck door or stuck windows are caused by your house settling, check for these other problem signs: uneven floors, drywall cracks, or gaps between the wall and floor.
Chimney Brick Cracks
Your chimney is the heaviest portion of your home and there’s a lot of weight concentrated in a small space.
Drywall Nail Pops
It’s true that nail pops can be a big problem. It’s concerning to see nails popping out of the ceiling or nail pops in walls.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Northern Virginia
While poor construction practices can lend themselves to foundation problems, they are not the only causes of foundation damage. More often than not, the source of many foundation problems is the property’s soil. There is a wide variety of soil types throughout the Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia area including silt loam, clay, and sandy loam. While sand tends to be well-drained, soil with more clay holds onto more water, is expansive, and leads to excessive hydrostatic pressure as well as cracking and bowing walls.
Just like any foundation repair solution, it’s important to consult with an expert to find out which type of repair is the best solution for your home.
Expansive soils soak up any available water, making it easy to take a look at the water sources around your home to determine if they are playing a part in your foundation problems.
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.
