  • 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 Decatur?

    Believe it or not, all foundations move. Yours is no different. It was designed to take into account the load of your home, and the conditions of the foundation’s surroundings. Every structure that has a foundation, has with its design, certain tolerances built into the specifications as to just how much movement the foundation can endure without becoming damaged. We are going to look at the movement beyond those tolerances which cause foundation problems.

    Decatur, Georgia sees quite a bit of foundation problems from excessive movement. We have learned that there are three main causes, or conditions that contribute to foundation movement, and Decatur just happens to be rather rich in all three areas! We are going to look at each one inpidually, as well as explain why these conditions cause foundation movement problems.

    Water

    When the foundation under your Decatur home begins to see an excessive amount of water, strange things start happening to your foundation. Water that pools underneath a slab essentially turns the earth under your foundation into a mud pit. When there is enough of this mud, your foundation will become unstable, and you will begin to notice the warning signs of a foundation problem. Water can also freeze under the slab causing it to heave upwards. When this happens, there will usually be a catastrophic failure not only in your foundation, but in the utilities, such as water that will rupture from being pulled away from the foundation. When a water line ruptures from foundation movement, the water causing the excessive movement suddenly has an endless supply to facilitate further foundation damage.

    Drainage

    When foundations have problems with the ability to properly drain water awayfrom the foundation’s slab or footings, we still have a water problem. Improper drains tend to cause water to pool against a foundation, especially in Georgia where there is absorbent clay soil around most homes. The resulting pressure is called hydrostatic pressure. This stress is essentially water that is pushing very hard against your foundation, and the water usually wins this fight. Foundation movement from water, and water that does not properly drain, account for over 75% of the foundation problems here in the greater Decatur area.

    Soil and Soil Compaction

    When the soil contains a high amount of clay, it is termed expansive soil. Expansive soil, which is found in Decatur, has the ability to expand and contract due to a high amount of clay that absorbs water. When these soils expand and contract under your foundation, it causes voids to form and these voids cause foundation movement problems. Decatur soil has also a compaction issue. The homes in the greater Decatur area that were built without first properly compacting the soil will see foundation movement due to excessive settling. Some settling is normal and causes no threat to your foundation. Improperly compacted soils will settle excessively after the slab or footings have been poured and the weight from these foundation components will cause excessive settling and foundation movement problems.

    These are the three main issues that lead to foundation movement problems in Decatur, Georgia. Your foundation is designed to withstand a certain amount of movement. The best way to determine if your foundation is beginning to move and cause problems is by getting a foundation professional like the ones here at Regional Foundation Repair to your home and determine the extent of foundation movement issues that you may be experiencing.

  • What Causes Foundation Problems in Decatur?

    The three items — water, drainage, and soil compaction — are the leaders, but they are not the only ones to be concerned about. Decatur also sees a fair amount of foundation damage due to other items such as weather patterns and invasive plant life.

    With regard to weather patterns, Decatur, Georgia is one of those southeastern United States areas, where the summers can be sweltering and at times winter storms can bring about sudden freezing conditions which keeps the soil around and under your foundation in a constant state of flux. These types of weather patterns will cause excessive expansion and contraction of the soil that is already expansive to begin with. This takes its toll on your foundation by exposing any weaknesses there may be, and exploiting them.

    When your foundation was originally poured in the form of concrete, there were tiny bubbles of air, that when dried, formed tiny voids in the foundation itself. Over time, water trapped in Georgia’s absorbent soil will work its way from the outside of your foundation, to the inside of your home by finding these voids and ‘connecting the dots’ to form a tiny flow of invasive water.

    Invasive plant life is a term that simply refers to tree roots that can invade your foundation and cause severe foundation damage. Tree roots are one of the leading causes of issues with underground plumbing, and foundations can have problems with them as well. Georgia has an abundance of large native trees that increase the risk of these problems.

    So, the soil and the things that affect the soil would be the leading cause of foundation problems here in Decatur.
