Signs of problems:

Does your home have floors that are not level, bouncy or sloping? Is it difficult to open and close or latch doors? Do you have cracks in sheetrock or in tile or flooring? Are there spaces around trim that used to fit tight? Knowing the warning signs and addressing existing problems early-on is usually the most cost effective way to help prevent a continuation of growing foundation problems.

Main causes:

Improper spacing:

Piers and beams under the home may be spaced too far apart to carry loads. Or perhaps there may not be enough pier-and-beam support to prevent interior problems from reoccurring.

Remodeling? Ideally, foundation repair and structural support should should be the first step before painting, flooring installation, kitchen and bathroom remodels, etc.

Main causes:

Moisture, water intrusion or plumbing leak:

Many homes have crawl spaces that hold standing water on the ground after heavy rains. Leaking plumbing lines under a home over time can cause settlement problems. This can allow for settlement of the interior support. Crawl space moisture causes wood to lose its strength and become dilapidated. Strength of concrete footings under pier supports could become compromised by long term water problems. Mold growth and insects or pests are also problems accompanied by the presence of water.

Main causes:

Pier-and-beam settlement:

Piers installed underneath a crawl space during original construction sometimes may shift or settle, causing the floor to dip or become deflected. These piers sometimes may need to be shimmed with metal shims or treated wood in order to raise help raise the structure.

Before you consider a long term repair for a crawl space you should: make sure that there is not a problem with water entering the crawl space or excessive moisture that could lead to mold or rotten wood.
