In Denver, homes are more susceptible to foundation issues because of the city’s expansive, clay-rich soil. This is because, unfortunately, soil rich in clay expands when it is wet. When the soil under your home expands, the expansion can result in structural issues and a failing foundation.
How can you tell if your foundation is failing? Here are some signs:
• Counters and cabinets separating from the wall
• Doors and windows that stick
• Foundation cracks
• Foundation settling or sinking
• Foundation upheaval
• Gaps around door frames and windows
• Nails popping out of drywall
• Sagging and uneven floors

Foundation Repair FAQs
Will Repairing The Foundation Fix Any Existing Cracks Or Create New Ones?
In many cases, existing cracks will close with foundation repair if no remodeling was performed after the foundation failure occured and there isn’t any dirt or debri in the cracks to prevent them from closing. Nevertheless, every foundation repair job is unique. In some cases, attempting to completely close cracks can create more collateral damage. In these cases, stabilization takes priority. Once the foundation is stabilized, exterior cracks in brickwork can be tuck pointed, interior cracks in the drywall can be patched and painted, and epoxy can be injected to repair cracks in the foundation. .
Does Repairing The Foundation Always Involve Fixing The Entire Foundation?
Not always. We custom-tailor our solutions to meet your home’s needs. In some cases, only a portion of the home’s foundation may need to be repaired. Although, it should be noted that the portion of the home’s foundation that isn’t repaired can continue to move over time if it sits on the same soil that the repaired portion of the foundation used to sit on. We will take that into consideration in our analysis and lay out all of your options for you.
How Long Does Foundation Repair Normally Take?
Every home is different and the extent of damage also varies from foundation to foundation. On average, repairs can take two to three days to complete. However, certain factors can increase the length of the job. Things like deeper footing or existence of concrete and landscaping in the way of the excavation path may prolong repairs.
Will Foundation Repair Affect My Landscaping?
During foundation repair, we try to preserve as much of your home’s landscape as possible. In some cases, we may have to disturb trees or shrubs that are in the way of excavation. We take great care to lift and replant any trees or shrubs in the excavation path, but we cannot guarantee with 100% certainty that they will survive the excavation process.
Will My Repair Be Covered By The Builder’s Warranty Or Homeowner’s Insurance?
On average, most builders offer a structural warranty on homes that last 10 years from the date of construction. It is extremely rare that foundation movement occurs within the first 10 years of the home’s lifespan. If you notice movement in your foundation and your home is less than 10 years old, you should contact your builder first.
However, if your home is over 10 years old, you likely won’t be covered by the builder’s warranty and homeowner’s insurance probably won’t cover the repair either. Insurance usually doesn’t cover foundation movement unless the movement was caused by a natural disaster (such as a flood or earthquake).
Fortunately, our repair solutions are affordable and financing is available to ensure that you’re able to properly fix your foundation without compromising on the quality of the repair.
Does Van Matre Construction, LLC Charge For A Foundation Evaluation?
No, Van Matre Construction, LLC does not charge anything for an initial foundation evaluation and quote. One of our foundation specialists will come out to analyze your foundation, find the root cause of your issues, provide the best possible solution, and write up an estimate detailing what our proposed solution would cost. There is absolutely no obligation involved in requesting a free quote from us.
What Is Involved In A Foundation Evaluation?
Foundation inspections usually involve both an interior and exterior examination. While inspecting your home’s interior, our foundation specialists will examine/look for the following elements:
- Support beams and load bearing devices
- The integrity of the concrete walls and floors within the foundation
- Water damage, mold, or cases of improper ventilation
- Internal cracks
Similarly, on the exterior of the house, our foundation specialists will examine/look for the following:
- Cracks/fissures on exterior walls
- Crumbling concrete
- Water drainage, landscaping, and irrigation
- Buckling walls, exterior bulges, or irregular slopes
After performing a thorough examination, our specialist will be able to diagnose the problem and provide you with the extent of the foundation damage (if any), approximate repair costs, and a turnaround time to complete repairs. Every house is different and some foundations or issues are more complex than others. The evaluation process may take several hours.
