  • 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 Indianapolis, Indiana?

    Foundation movement is a prevalent problem in much of Indiana. Homeowners in Indianapolis, Lafayette, Bloomington, Carmel, Whiteland, Zionsville, Fishers, Greenwood, and other nearby cities experience resulting damage at an alarming rate.

  • What Causes Foundation Problems In Indianapolis, Indiana?

    The many factors that cause foundation problems in Indianapolis can produce various symptoms in your concrete. We’ll discuss the most common signs of under-home issues below and the problem each one likely indicates.

    Foundation Cracks

    Foundation cracks are usually the most apparent signs of damage. However, they can be totally harmless or indicate the loss of structural integrity, depending on their location and size.

    Thin Floor Cracks or Vertical Wall Cracks

    Hairline cracks regularly form in slabs and basement walls, as well as on concrete walls in a vertical orientation. They generally indicate normal settling that occurred shortly after new construction, and they aren’t a cause for major concern. The best course of action is to seal them with epoxy or polyurethane to prevent water intrusion, a common occurrence in Indianapolis.

    Horizontal Wall Cracks

    Wall cracks running horizontally on your foundation wall are much more problematic. They appear when the hydrostatic pressure from the expansive soil outside becomes too much for your wall to resist. These cracks are clear signs of structural damage and should be inspected and stabilized by a foundation repair company as quickly as possible.

    Stair-Step Cracks

    Many homeowners in Indianapolis experience step-shaped cracks on their crawlspace or basement walls. These are a result of differential settling usually caused by dry clay soil. When an area of your foundation loses support from shrinking soil underneath, it cracks away from your home and sinks into the ground until it finds stability on the dirt again.

    These gaps indicate structural damage, so they should be fixed by a concrete repair specialist as soon as possible.

    Bowing Foundation Walls

    The hydrostatic pressure from wet clay soil regularly puts undue stress on your foundation walls. The pressure eventually leads to a horizontal crack but can sometimes be identified before cracking occurs by inward bowing. Concrete can bend very minimally, so this sign of foundation damage should be addressed quickly before a fissure forms and structural integrity is lost.

    Uneven Basement Floor

    Differential settling from drying clay soils and frost heave cause upward and downward earth movement beneath your foundation. The frequent and non-uniform swelling and sinking can cause portions of your slab to settle or heave at different rates from the rest of your home.

    Homeowners who experience this hazardous movement often see sloping or uneven flooring in their crawlspace or basement or cracks on the floor where one side is raised above the other. A common symptom of frost heave is floor cracks forming in a circular pattern above the most significant point of pressure from underneath the concrete.

    Moist or Wet Basement or Crawlspace

    Lastly, there are many signs of water intrusion, which is a prevalent problem in Indianapolis because of the expansive soil, flooding, high water table, and frequent rainfall.

    Most homeowners notice visual symptoms of water problems, including water trickling in through foundation cracks, wet spots or pooling water on the crawlspace or basement floor, water damage to construction materials, or efflorescence, which is a white deposit on the concrete walls from evaporating water.

    Water vapor can be equally as dangerous and is typically more challenging to identify. You may notice heavy or dense air under your home, musty odors, mold growth, or an insect or rodent infestation in your under-home area.

    The air under your house can seep up into your living space, so several symptoms can be evident on your upper floors. These include unexplained itchy eyes or sneezing from mold spores in the air, uncomfortably hot or cold temperatures from increased humidity, and unusually high utility bills if you or your family has compensated for damp air by turning up your heat or air conditioning.

  • What Are The Signs of Basement Foundation Damage In Indianapolis, Indiana?

    Foundation issues almost always worsen over time, so identifying damage as quickly as it begins forming can help you limit property damage and keep your repair costs down. Below, we’ll discuss a protocol you can follow to find foundation damage before it becomes severe.

    Inspect Your Foundation Often

    The best way to identify potentially dangerous changes in your foundation is to monitor the concrete. We recommend doing your own home inspection once every three to four months, beginning with your foundation.

    Look at the concrete outside your home for cracks, crumbling, and signs of sinking. If you have a crawlspace or basement, continue inspecting the concrete for new or worsening damage inside. Check for cracks on the floor and walls, and keep a log of any gaps you find with the width and length noted for comparison during future inspections. Report any widening, lengthening, or potentially dangerous cracks to a foundation repair specialist right away.

    Look out for mold growth, signs of insects or rodents, water pooling on the floor, wet concrete, damp air, musty odors, efflorescence, sagging insulation, and other signs of water damage to construction materials.

    Inspect Your Home’s Interior

    Your quarterly inspection should include a thorough check of your living space, as many symptoms will show up inside your home.

    Drywall damage is one of the more apparent symptoms, so look for cracks in the sheetrock around doors, windows, and where the walls meet the ceiling. You may also notice nail heads bulging out of the drywall, walls that aren’t plumb, and cabinets separating from drywall if it bows outward.

    The floor joists in your house require a level, structurally sound foundation to function correctly, so look for sagging, sloping, or buckling floors throughout your living space.

    Lastly, take note of unusual allergy symptoms, uncomfortably warm or cold temperatures during the summer and winter, and utility bills that are higher than normal, all of which are signs of poor indoor air quality as a result of foundation damage.

    Inspect Your Home’s Exterior

    Complete your home inspection outside, where you can look for cracks in the siding, sagging or wavy roofing, and a leaning or crumbling chimney.

    cracks on the brick facade

    Your landscaping can help identify some potential soil issues as well. Signs of inadequate drainage and expansive soil that frequently cause foundation problems in Indianapolis include puddles on the lawn after rainfall or flooding, an unlevel yard, leaning or crumbling retaining walls, and signs that the dirt around your home is pulling away from your foundation.

  • Cost of Basement Foundation Repair In Indianapolis, Indiana?

    Indianapolis foundation repair costs around $5,000 on average, but you may find yourself paying as little as $300 or in excess of $20,000 for smaller or more significant problems. We’ll offer some per-project pricing below for the more common foundation repair services in central Indiana.

    Cost to Seal Foundation Cracks

    Hairline floor cracks and thin vertical wall cracks that aren’t structural can typically be sealed for under $1,000. The average cost for this slab or wall repair is around $500 and can range between $300 and $800 based on the width and length.

    Cost to Repair Horizontal Wall Cracks or Bowing Foundation Walls

    Inward movement of your foundation wall, whether you’re experiencing bowing or a full horizontal crack, is often repaired using wall anchors. They consist of a brace placed in the lawn, a wall anchor on the inside of your crawlspace or basement wall, and a tension rod to pull the wall outward and back to its original position.

    Earth anchors cost an average of $1,000. Your total cost can range from around $3,000 up to $5,000, depending on how many anchors you need.

    Some foundation repair contractors opt for carbon fiber support strips to help resist further inward movement. This type of basement or crawlspace repair costs an average of $2,000 to install, but they are generally less permanent solutions and often don’t include a warranty.

    Cost to Fix Stair-Step Cracks or Sinking Foundations

    Foundation sinking, whether it results in a stair-step crack on the wall or an uneven floor crack, typically costs between $3,000 and $20,000, depending on how large of a concrete section is sinking.

    Most foundation repair experts use underpinning to correct the effects of differential settling. Underpinning involves placing push piers under your foundation for added support. Steel piers cost around $1,000 each and get set down to the bedrock, while helical piers are about $3,000 each and use screw-like threads to provide support from a much shallower depth.

    Cost to Waterproof Your Basement or Crawlspace

    The expansive soil, frequent precipitation, high water table, and flood risk in Indianapolis make water intrusion and the associated damages widespread in the city and the surrounding area. Most homeowners opt for complete basement waterproofing systems to reduce the amount of water that can enter and remain in their under-home area.

    These systems can range from around $2,500 up to $10,000, depending on what they include. Standard methods used in one of these basement systems are French drains, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, vapor barriers, crawlspace encapsulation, and floor drains. Your best option is to choose a foundation repair expert with years of experience who will install a comprehensive, warrantied waterproofing system.
