I have noticed some cracks in the foundation of my home. Are cracks in foundation normal?
Although the formation of cracks in the foundation of a home is quite common, it is anything but normal. Cracking in the bricks that make up the foundation of your home is almost always an indicator of foundation damage that will only get worse without proper repair. These cracks are due to the foundation of your home settling with changes in the soil it sits upon.
Some other signs of foundational damage include cracking on the inside of your basement or crawlspace, doors and windows sticking when you open or close them, and cracking of drywall surrounding doors or windows. Even small cracks should not be taken lightly: always remember, big cracks once started as small cracks.
Luckily for you, here at The Foundation Specialists we have solutions to all foundation repair jobs no matter the size or circumstances.
It all starts with one of our comprehensive inspections where our foundation and concrete specialists will examine the damage and formulate a realistic and honest foundation repair solution tailored specifically to your home. After we come up with the best method of repair, our team will get to work repairing your foundation with one of our state-of-the-art pier systems.

- Extend past the “active zone” to stabilize your home on the solid bedrock that lies below
- Are made from high grade galvanized steel to assure quality and durability

- Can possibly lift your home to its original position in some cases
