Foundation Repair in Richmond, VA

Foundation damage like cracks, bowing walls, and settling are very real problems that can greatly impact the safety and structural integrity of the rest of your home. It doesn’t help that the soil around Richmond, VA, has sandy properties and that the area is wet year-round. Unstable soil is typically at the root of most foundation issues. 

While it’s not realistic to change all the soil under and around your Richmond home, there are ways to fix your foundation and ensure its longevity. JES Foundation Repair can help with reliable, permanent foundation repair solutions that will put your home back on solid ground.

Foundation Problem Signs in Richmond, VA

Your Richmond home could show signs of foundation damage in various forms. Some of the most typical and easy to notice include basement wall cracks, basement floor cracks, bowing basement walls, drywall nail pops, drywall cracks, cracking and leaning chimney, settling, and uneven floors. These issues also can co-occur or be confused with similar basement or crawl space problems, so it’s important to have a professional inspection from JES to determine exactly what the problems and causes are. 

cracking and bowing foundation wall problems

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

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.

Sinking Foundation

Ground sinking near your home’s foundation indicates that you have a serious foundation problem.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Richmond, VA

While foundation problems can have a number of causes, the soil underneath and around your Richmond home is generally the source. Sandy soil typical throughout Richmond tends to be well-drained. If it is too well-drained or the area experiences a drought or lack of precipitation, it will shrink, and the foundation can sink into voids left behind. If the soil is inundated with water from frequent rain, the foundation can settle in the soft soil, or the walls can crack and move inward because of excess hydrostatic pressure.

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.

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.
