Expert Foundation Repair Services For Your St. Louis, MO Home

Have you noticed certain things about your home’s structure that have concerned you? Maybe some cracks in a wall or slanted floors? If your St. Louis home is in trouble, don’t wait to call the experts, High & Dry Foundation Repair. The older the home, the more likely it is to need foundation repair. Modern concrete slabs were not used on homes built before the 1940s, making their foundations less stable and more prone to damage. In addition, wear and tear on a home can contribute to foundation movement. Erosion, climate effects and tree roots can all damage a home’s foundation over time.

If you think you have issues with your foundation, don't hesitate to give us a call at 636-273-1150 to schedule an inspection today!

What Can Cause My Home To Need Foundation Repair?

You might think of your home's foundation as a solid, strong, invulnerable object - but that's simply not the case. There are numerous things that can affect your foundation over time, causing damage that will need repair. Some of these dangers include:

  • Water Damage - If you've got poor drainage, plumbing leaks or excessive rain, the soil around your foundation can become saturated which can cause the foundation to shift or settle.
  • Soil Shifting - Some soils expand and contract significantly due to changes in moisture, and this movement can cause your foundation to crack.
  • Poor Construction - If your builder cut corners and used substandard materials or inadequate reinforcement, it could be just a matter of time until something damages your structural integrity.
  • Tree Roots - Large trees near the home can develop roots that push against your foundation, exerting pressure that causes cracking or shifting.
  • Soil Erosion - As water runoff erodes the soil around your foundation that is meant to support it, there can be instability that leads to damage.
  • Earthquakes - Thankfully not something we have to deal with too often here in St. Louis, but if there is an earthquake, it can put a lot of stress on your foundation that will often cause cracks.

What Are Some Signs I Have Foundation Damage At My St. Louis, MO Home?

Thankfully your home is able to tip you off if there's something wrong with its foundation. Here are some signs to watch for so you'll know if you need to call in expert help:

  1. Visible Cracks In Walls & Floors - This is the big one. If you notice sudden cracks that have appeared in your walls or floors, it often means that your foundation has shifted. They are a sure sign to get things checked out.
  2. Door & Window Misalignment - If you find it hard to open or close doors or windows because they're no longer lining up with their frames, it can be a sign that your foundation is shifting and causing problems with alignment.
  3. Sloping Or Uneven Floors - If your property feels less like a home and more like a funhouse, that's bad. Sloping floors suggest your foundation is settling and pulling part of your home with it.
  4. Water Damage - If you notice dampness in your basement, or worse yet, mold, it could mean that cracks in the foundation are letting water in - which can quickly multiply the damage.
