Many signs of foundation failure can be subtle and may not seem like a big deal. However, even the smallest cracks or misalignment can indicate that there is a bigger issue occurring underneath the surface. Have you noticed cracks in your drywall, or doors and windows that won’t quite close all the way? Perhaps you have even seen cracks in your brickwork or concrete foundation. All of these things indicate that you might be in need of foundation repair. Be sure to look out for the following signs:

Causes of Foundation Failure: Why is it happening?

Foundation Repair Virginia BeachUnfortunately, foundation failure is extremely common in Virginia, and many homeowners will have to face it in their lifetime. Most foundation problems can be attributed to nature itself, which can cause shifting and settling in the foundation over time.

Hot and dry conditions cause the soil underneath your home to pull away from your foundation, which can create cracks throughout your foundation slab. Wet and rainy conditions will alternatively cause the soil to expand and push against your foundation walls. This process can cause your foundation to shift and settle into the ground.

Imbalanced soil conditions are not the only thing that can cause foundation issues. Your foundation may become uneven due to overgrown tree roots, plumbing leaks, swimming pool leaks, improper drainage, or poor site preparation when your home was first built.
