How to Recognize Signs of Foundation Structural Damage

Tony Hafford and his Company, TC Hafford Basement System, have been fixing residential foundation problems throughout Maine and SE New Hampshire for over 20 years. Tony is at Ask the Expert, answering one of the most common questions asked by homeowners concerning their home's foundations- What are common signs of foundation problems and how can we tell if the structure of the house is compromised?

If you notice sagging, unleveled floors, doors and windows that begin to stick, or drywall cracks in the house -- especially around the corners of windows and doors -- it is a good idea to call a professional to inspect your foundation.

Other noticeable signs of structural damage include horizontal or stair step cracks on basement walls, bowing or leaning walls, vertical and v-shaped foundation cracks. Tony explains that there is no reason to panic if your Maine home has a foundation problem. This is because there are foundation repair technologies that can easily and affordably stabilize and restore damaged foundations without the cost and hassle of foundation replacement.

Helical and push piers can support and lift sinking foundations, putting your home back on solid ground. Wall anchors, wall braces and carbon reinforced fibers can fix all types of bowing, leaning and crumbling basement walls as well.
