Atlanta Home Foundation Repair
Home foundations in Atlanta are very susceptible to problems with settling, sinking and becoming unlevel. This is sometimes due to less than perfect home construction, structural foundation problems and from soil problems. A large number of Atlanta area homes are built on clay soil. As a building base clay soil is more problematic than soils with higher organic composition. In reaction to the amount of water in the soil clay expands and contracts significantly more than looser soils with high organic composition. Additionally, clay soils are poor acquifers which means that water does not easily soak through the soil. Home foundations built on clay soils can often be unequally raised or allowed to settle at different points. Dynamic soil movements and structural foundation design problems combine to cause unacceptable home foundation problems.
The photos on this page show some of the most telling signs of foundation repair problems. Large cracks indicating separating areas of brick or block walls, cracks in concrete basement walls or a cracks in slab foundations are all signs of problems. Because you may need structural foundation repair and cosmetic foundation repair services you need to hire a full service foundation and masonry repair contractor.
