Is your House Foundation on the Move? Southwest Marietta, GA
Residential House

Your home’s structural integrity depends on a stable foundation. When the base of a building moves, every supported structure is at risk. Several common factors may cause a foundation to shift.

Due to the location on a foundation, determining the cause of movement is tricky. A vision inspection will show subsidence, cracks, and other signs of a problem. However, you do need to dig deeper to identify contributing factors.

Water Intrusion

Saturation may occur if water is not draining away effectively or after heavy rainfall. This can result in soil expansion, which spells trouble for your foundation. Alternatively, moisture intrusion can penetrate deep into substrate materials, compromising the integrity of the earth. Consequently, the foundation may sink or begin to shift.

During a dry spell, the soil may begin to form cracks and a foundational drop. There is also a risk of m shrinking soil detaching from the foundation, weakening the structure’s support. As a result, your foundation may shift, crack, or subside on one or more sides of the building.

Uncontrolled Flora

Plants and trees with strong root systems will remain healthy and strong. However, they also absorb much of the water from your soil. When this results in a drought around your foundation, the structure is likely to move or suffer structural damage.

Trees tend to grow large and strong root systems. If you have trees close to your home, cracks and other issues could be linked to roots spreading beneath your property. You may need to remove these landscape features or identify solutions for preventing root intrusion.

Soil Quality & Construction

Quality of materials and standard of workmanship may have played a role in foundational problems. For example, weak building materials are more susceptible to cracking under pressure. From water to soil expansion, your home may not have the best foundation for weathering a potential storm.

The soil quality beneath your home is important. Insufficient compaction or poor quality soil will not support a foundation. As a result, the entire building will begin to subside, resulting in additional damage appearing in walls and ceilings.

If you are concerned about the structural integrity of your home, turn to Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs in Marietta today.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
