CONCERN OR COSMETIC?
Common signs of a sinking foundation include: brick, stucco or foundation cracking, drywall cracking and nail pops, uneven floors, windows and doors not closing as they should, and interior or exterior wall separation. Although some cosmetic changes to your home may be harmless, our specialists can determine if your home rests on a settling foundation.

HOW WE REPAIR A SINKING FOUNDATION
Learn how we repair unstable foundations using different types of foundation piers. We offer foundation underpinning solutions that install foundation piles or “piers” to stabilize the foundation.
WHAT CAUSES FOUNDATION SETTLING?
Foundations of homes can move, sink or settle due to changes or disturbances in the bearing strata soil beneath the footings of the foundation. Changes or disturbances can be cause by: poor compaction of soil before the foundation of the home was constructed, overexposure of water to the bearing soil under the footings (due to poor drainage or a change in the surrounding water table) or the home being built on expansive/collapsible soil.

WHAT IF I DON’T REMEDY MY FOUNDATION ISSUES?
Without stabilizing the foundation it is possible that your foundation settling will worsen, and could create further issues. In many cases these symptoms are livable and mostly cosmetic. However, when trying to sell your home foundation settling will likely be a concern for potential buyers. Extreme Foundation Repair offers permanent solutions for foundation repair to ensure your home will never sink again. To top it off, our transferable warranty will give the future home buyers peace of mind as well.
PREVENTING AN UNSTABLE FOUNDATION
Most homeowners are Do-It-Yourself savvy and look for ways to prevent future foundation issues. The first potential issue to address is water drainage surrounding the foundation. Extending downspouts at least six feet from the foundation, ensuring gutters are clear and directing water to the downspouts, and maintaining a grade that slopes away from your foundation are all important to manage drainage that can impact soil stability surrounding your foundation.
Unfortunately, when a home is built on poorly compacted soil or on expansive soil, proper drainage will have little impact on foundation settling. Fortunately, we have permanent solutions for foundation stabilization.
