Signs You Have Issues with Your Foundation

  • Cracks in your home’s drywall (especially near doors and windows)
  • Cracks in your foundation’s concrete walls
  • A leaning chimney 
  • Foundation walls that are bowing or bulging

The most obvious sign of foundation problems is cracks in the concrete. You may also notice that your foundation walls are not completely level, and may be pushing in.

But foundation issues can make themselves known throughout your home as well. These signs can include sagging floors, doors that have trouble closing or rub against the jambs, and spider cracks in your drywall, particularly at the corners of doorways or around windows.

The most important thing to keep in mind about finding cracks in your foundation is that in almost every case, they will only get worse, and they will become more and more expensive to fix as time goes on. When you find a crack, call Total Home Performance!

How Total Home Performance Handles Foundation Repair

With foundation cracks, the crack isn’t the main problem—it’s just the symptom of a larger issue that needs to be addressed by stabilizing your foundation.

Helical Pier Installation

One of the primary ways we stabilize foundations is by installing helical piers, which lock your home into place. Helical piers are screwed deep into the ground underneath your home and are attached via brackets to your home’s foundation to support it.

Helical piers ensure that your home’s foundation will not continue to shift or settle. This offers peace of mind that your home’s structural integrity is no longer at risk, and gives you the opportunity to focus on addressing the underlying issues—often moisture or water problems in your crawl space or in the soil around your foundation.

What Makes Total Home Performance Different?

Total Home Performance has always been a building science-oriented, whole-home contractor. What does this mean? It means that we take your entire house into consideration when we work on it. 

When your foundation is cracked, you likely have water issues in your crawl space as a result, which could lead to wood rot on your floor joists and mold growth that is affecting the health and safety of your family throughout your home. So why not work with a contractor that understands how all of these issues are interconnected and can help address every one of them?

At Total Home Performance, our mission is clear: we want to make homes healthy, safe, comfortable, efficient, and durable.
