Professional Basement Foundation Repair
Your home’s foundation lies directly over an underground layer that may consist of rocks, soil, and vegetation. Your basement foundation works by transferring the load of your home’s structure to this underground layer. It’s important to maintain and repair your basement foundation because if it’s damaged, it can compromise your home’s structural integrity.
In the clay-rich soil of Denver, your home will experience shifts in the foundation and other structural issues. This is because the clay soil surrounding your home expands when it’s wet and places enormous amounts of pressure on your home foundation.
How to Know if You Need Basement Repairs
You can’t see the pressure exerted by expanding clay soil on your basement walls, but you may see and feel its effects. Here are the signs you should watch out for to determine the need for basement repairs:
- Cabinets and counters coming off walls
- Doors and windows sticking
- Settling or sinking foundation
- Cracks in the foundation
- Elevated foundation
- Door frames and windows have gaps
- Nails popping out of drywall
- Sagging, uneven floors
Don’t wait for any of these signs to multiply or worsen. If you notice one or any combination of these, you should call Van Metre Construction, LLC for basement foundation repairs. We will send our team over to assess your case, and recommend the best solution.
