  • Thank you Regional Foundation Repair! They scheduled an appointment for last minute. Got a quick assessment and then after the technician (can't remember his name) explained the entire process to us in a way that felt very simple and straight forward. He was very honest and transparent with the repairs we needed. We found their estimate to be very reasonable compared to the other quotes we received. When the crew came out, they were very professional and explained their progress throughout the job. As expected, they cleaned up everything at the end of the day and the tech caught up with me to make sure the work was completed to my satisfaction. We had a lot of questions and they were very responsive. We've had an excellent experience with RegionalFoundationRepair from start to finish!

  • Love these guys. They are professional, punctual, and saved me $1,000's explaining exactly what my foundation problem was and what I needed. Other companies were trying to sell me on the bells and whistles pushing services I didn't really need. These guys were transparent and the pricing for the job came out about $500 less then the other quotes.

  • Does Foundation Movement Affect Cumming?

    Owning a home in Cumming and surrounding areas such as Sugar Hill, Buford, and Big Creek means you’re familiar with the winter freezes and thaws and the frequent rainy spells which can cause considerable damage to foundations. It gets cold here, but it doesn’t stay cold. We have our rain issues, but it gets very hot and dry as well. With extraneous weather in any direction, foundation damage happens regularly in Cumming.

  • What Causes Foundation Problems in Cumming?

    Our central location allows for all sorts of weather and environmental changes that affect structure foundations. Here are the major players:

    Freeze/Thaw Cycle

    The freeze/thaw cycle wreaks havoc on our Cummings home foundations. As ice, snow, and sleet settles into a porous concrete foundation and refreezes, the concrete expands and cracks form. Each time water leaks into the cracks and refreezes, the cracks are pushed farther apart until obvious sagging begins to show in the floors and walls.

    Rainy Season

    It’s usually warm and sunny in Cumming, but we have our rain and flood times. Excess rain causes two very distinct problems. If there isn’t proper drainage under the foundation, rain pools under the home and the moisture causes cracks and settling. Another problem, rain and flooding causes is heaving. Soil that contains too much moisture will heave upward and push the foundation with it.

    Soil Preparation Issues

    The soil that will be under a home’s foundation is as important as the foundation itself. You have to take the type, consistency, and condition into consideration before a foundation begins. Soil has to be properly compacted before a foundation is poured on it. The type of soil you’re working with, like the loamy, clay mixture commonly found in Cumming, determines how it is compacted.

    High Temperatures

    The higher the temperatures go, the faster water evaporates from your home’s foundation. This is especially true of newer slabs, or concrete foundations. Evaporation causes cracks to form in the foundation. Water seeps into the cracks and small fissures and destroys the foundation over time.

    Hot weather also causes soil shrinkage. Several days of excessively hot temperatures draw a lot of moisture from the soil. Loss of moisture causes shrinkage. The moisture it loses, the more it shrinks. As it dries, soil becomes hard and compact. It develops spaces and air pockets under the foundation, and it becomes unstable.

    Soil shrinkage occurs in the upper portions of soil. Desiccation by tree roots and drops in moisture levels from evaporation or a low groundwater table are the usual culprits of soil shrinkage. The same process happens in reverse when soil swells and upheaves.

    Hot, dry climates also lead to soil erosion. Rain pours into the cracks and fissures in dried out soil and all the dusty soil rushes away with it causing bigger voids under the foundation. Long stints of rain saturate the ground, fill up the cavities, and increase hydrostatic pressure which pushes on the concrete foundation, causing more upheavals and cracks.

    Even if your soil is correctly compacted before you pour a foundation, soil erosion and shrinking are problems Cummings homeowners face regularly. Soil erosion is natural, but human interaction also has a big impact.

    Shrinking and swelling soil issues are commonly associated with fine-grained clay soils like the ultisol prevalent in Georgia.

  • What Are the Signs of Basement Foundation Damage in Cumming?

    It is vital to keep an eye out for even the most subtle signs of foundation damage. Keeping your home in tip-top shape for decades to come depends heavily on the health of its foundation. Addressing small signs of disrepair as they appear is the best way to keep repairs, and costs, under control. Here are the most common signs of foundation damage in the Cumming area.

    Cracks or Bows in Walls

    A damaged foundation can no longer properly support a wall. Without proper support, walls ripple, bow, crack, and splinter. A pocket of air, settling soil, or excess moisture can cause changes in a wall’s appearance and structure.

    Foundation Upheaval

    When you notice an upheaval in the floors, you know you’re a victim of the rainy weather and too much moisture. It isn’t an impossible fix, but it’s a problem that must be addressed immediately to prevent further damage.

    Sticking Doors and Gaping Windows

    When the foundation settles or heaves, it isn’t unusual to find doors that suddenly don’t shut properly or windows that seem to sit askew when they didn’t before. Often, doors will stick due to humidity before and after a big storm. If this isn’t the case, it’s probably a sign that the foundation is settling, especially if you’ve noticed other signs around the house such as cracked walls.

    Separation Between Wall and Cabinet

    A tiny separation between the wall and the kitchen cabinets is an easy thing to overlook. It can seem harmless, but it progresses quickly when the problem is an uneven foundation. Before you know it, there’s a 1/8″ or 1/2″ gap. When the foundation is no longer level, neither is anything else in your house.

    Weird Smells and Unusual Humidity

    Some signs of foundation disrepair are very subtle, and you may not realize they are a sign of trouble right away. Things like weird smells you sometimes find in the basement or crawlspace. You sort of expect weird smells from that area, so it doesn’t always register, but it can be a sign of too much moisture under your house.

    Experiencing a lot of humidity for no apparent reason is another sign of foundation trouble. Humidity and weird smells are products of excess moisture under your house and in the foundation. Stale air trapped in the foundation and soil eventually begins to stink as it evaporates and causes humidity.

  • Do You Need to Hire a Structural Engineer to Fix Your Foundation in Cumming?

    Not every foundation problem requires a structural engineer to successfully repair, but they are an excellent resource to have in your tool chest. They can provide you with an engineering report that identifies all the problem areas in the structure of your home. Structural engineers are not in business to make a huge cut on your construction deal. You can be assured that their information is sound and impartial. You’ll also get expert advice on the best way to fix the problems. You can get a structural engineering report before you buy a house to make sure there are no major problems. You can usually get a structural engineering report for between $750 and $1500 in Cumming. Definitely an investment worth the money and a great way to find out exactly where you stand when it comes to your home’s foundation.

    With an engineering report, you can negotiate the best way to get your problem fixed, while you enjoy a lovely afternoon at Sawnee Mountain Preserve.

  • Cost of Basement Foundation Repair in Cumming?

    The cost of foundation repair services in Cumming varies considerably depending on a few factors.

    The biggest factor is how much damage already exists in the foundation. Cumming foundation repair can cost anywhere from $500 for a basic repair up to $10,000 or more for widespread reinforcement and total waterproofing and sealing.

    The way you decide to fix any foundation problem also has an impact on the cost. Sometimes, a sinking foundation can be repaired by stabilization with piles, or by mud or foam jacking. Piling stabilization costs can reach the $5,000-10,000 range pretty quickly. The average starting prices for mud jacking start around $1,000. Foam jacking is around $7,000 to $10,000 on average, depending on the season and other environmental factors.

    The size of your home also contributes to the price. Large, stately mansions require more work than small one-bedrooms. If your home is as tall as the Northside Hospital Forsyth or the Hampton Inn, you’ll probably need to seek out some financing. Otherwise, waterproofing a 1500 square foot basement in Cumming will cost around $4,400 on average. The average cost for the same job on a 2,000 square foot home in Cumming is about $7,400. Homes with more extensive damage in the works will have a higher cost to repair.

    The age of a home also affects the price of repairs. Most homes in Cumming were built in the 1920s, but a few are even older. Older construction materials, like aged wood, plaster, marble, as we see in the Fowler Family Farm, which was built in 1922, need special reinforcement to restore it to its original form. Home foundation repair costs are higher if you live in a historic home or neighborhood.

    The condition of your basement has a huge impact on the total cost of foundation repairs. An unfinished crawl space doesn’t take much effort in preparation, but a finished basement needs partially demolished at the very least. Only then can the foundation be repaired and a remodel take place. A demolition can mean tearing down entire walls and even redesigning rooms. Everything must be torn down and replaced or removed completely. An often overlooked cost related to demolition is clean up. Homeowners must hire a crew to do the industrial clean up, or pay the contractor to do it. Extra requirements like demo cleanup add considerable cost to the backend. Consider doing the cleanup yourself to save money. Enlist friends, neighbors, and family to help save time too.

  • Does the Soil in Cumming Affect Your Foundation?

    The soil in Cumming absolutely affects your foundation. The soil under any foundation affects its long term well-being. The most common type of soil in Cumming is ultisol. Ultisol means red clay, and while there is a lot of it in Cumming, there are other varieties of soil as well. Most areas have a mixture of sand, silt, and clay. The soil has more clay inland, while it is more nutrient-rich near the coast.

    The loamy soil of Cumming is far easier to build on than the clay, which requires a bit more preparation, but holds up well over the years. As years go by, environmental factors can have an impact on soil. Watch for any signs of disrepair as your home ages.
