Warning Signs of Foundation Damage Southwest Marietta, GA
crack in exterior brick wall

We all ignore certain things in life, and we all know how ignoring certain warning signs can get us into trouble. Just think about the last time you got a speeding ticket – you chose to ignore that speed limit sign.

Something that you should never ignore is any type of warning sign of foundation problems. Your home or business property should be safe for all those who enter it. Be on the lookout for these issues:

  • Cracks in bricks. If you notice any type of cracking in the bricks of your property, pay close attention. Cracks can vary in size but are generally in a zig-zag pattern throughout a portion of the brick and mortar.
  • Cracks in the floor. Cracks in tiles or flooring indicate that the foundation is being affected by settlement.
  • Cracks in sheetrock or drywall. While most cracks in the walls are only cosmetic concerns, it is important to pay attention to them. If they worsen over time or come back after sheetrock repair has been done, they indicate a problem.
  • Cracks in corners. It is essential that you do a yearly inspection of your home. If you notice cracks in the siding of your home around the corners, you need foundation repair services.
  • Cracks in stucco. Cracks in stucco typically create an ascending staircase pattern. These cracks are an indicator of foundational problems.
  • Gaps in the garage door. Pay attention to your garage. If you notice warping walls, a separation between the slab floor and the ground, or gaps around your garage, there are problems with the foundation.
  • Gaps in windows or doors. If you begin to notice gaps around doors or windows, it is important to call the experts. Openings like door frames and windows are usually where the foundational pressure is revealed.
  • Misaligned doors or windows. If windows or doors stick, this is an indication of a structural problem with your home or commercial property.
  • A leaning chimney. If your chimney is leaning toward or away from your home, your property is at risk. There is a structural or foundation problem.

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.
