  • 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 Kansas City?

    The foundation movement in Kansas City is a serious problem that we can’t turn a blind eye to. And contrary to a common belief that the issue is only a preserve for old properties, even newer homes face equal risks.

    Homeowners in Kansas City experience foundation movement at an alarming rate, and that’s evident in the fact that it is one of the most active metropolitan areas in the United States making Google queries related to “foundation repair” and “basement waterproofing.” That’s data according to Google Trends – an innovative service that tracks internet search volumes across various regions within specified periods.

    Despite soil being a blessing to the state of Missouri, contributing to its rich agricultural culture, it isn’t quite ideal for every Kansas City’s homeowner. The city is synonymous with expansive Harney silt loam, which may cause foundation issues to some homeowners, thanks to its poor drainage properties causing the soil to expand.

  • What Causes Foundation Problems in Kansas City?

    Soil Expansion Under the Floor Slabs

    When the soil underneath the foundation expands due to poor drainage, it causes water issues in the basement. If you notice water running down the foundation’s walls or cracks in the floor slabs, also known as heaving, that’s usually a sign that the soil underneath has expanded and caused foundation movement.

    The worst-case scenario would be cracks in the upper-level sheetrock. This may result in the door not fitting well. The good news is that you have nothing to panic about, as skilled foundation experts can come to your aid and fix the issue before damage occurs.

    Poor Soil Compaction

    Flashback to the construction stage; before the foundation gets laid, valleys are usually leveled (filled with soil), and hilltops trenched down to create a buildable surface, right? The problem arises when the fill soils aren’t adequately compacted, leading to foundation issues. Perhaps the construction workers may put their best effort to compact the soil, but due to Kansas City soil’s poor drainage, everything cancels out.

    The bottom line is, when the soil is not strong enough to withhold the building’s weight, foundation movement issues may arise.

    Excessive Organic Materials

    Earlier, we mentioned that Kansas City is synonymous with its rich agricultural history because its Harney silt loam soil supports food growth. Well, guess what? One of the reasons for the intense fertility of the city’s soil is the availability of organic matter like earthworms which aerates the soil.

    As much as this is overly beneficial for agriculture, the same cannot be said about buildings’ foundation. The excessive organic matter causes the soil to shrink and expand, depending on the amount of moisture on the ground. During high moisture periods, the soil will heave, causing the foundation to lift. Likewise, the foundation will move or sink during low moisture periods. On either of the occasions, the damage may be far-reaching when left unrepaired.

    Trees and Vegetation 

    Trees and vegetation planted closer to the house’s foundation may result in serious issues when the roots begin penetrating as they grow. If this happens, the pressure that the roots apply on the foundation may cause it to crack, paving the way for water and foreign debris.

    As more and more eternal materials like rock chips and leaves fill the foundation, it not only moves but also causes its structure to weaken. The problem only gets worse when left untreated, hence, you should call a foundation expert immediately when you notice foundation cracks or other fissures near trees or vegetation.

  • What Are the Signs of Basement Foundation Damage in Kansas City?

    You know what they say; prevention is better than cure. Inspecting your house regularly, detecting early signs of foundation damage, and calling in the experts to conduct repairs can save you thousands of dollars and guarantee you and your family’s safety, knowing that the house won’t sink on you.

    That being said, here are the top five common signs of basement foundation damage in Kansas City:

    Basement Wall Cracks

    Soil expansion and contraction often lead to cracks in the foundation basement. You may also notice small fissures, but that’s not usually a significant cause for alarm as they’re merely â…› inches thick. However, you should still have the concrete inspected by a reliable foundation repair company as any crack or fissure, no matter how small, is usually a sign of foundation movement.

    Water in the Basement

    As you may be aware, Kansas City soil’s poor drainage is one of the significant causes of water issues. If you notice water running down the foundation wall or lingering in the basement floor, that’s usually a sign of the swelling of the soil underneath. And true to your guess, soil expansion usually results from high moisture accumulation due to poor drainage.

    Bowing Walls

    The hydrostatic pressure due to poor drainage may also cause the basement walls to move inwardly. As the pressure continues to build up, the walls may damage. As such, if you notice any bends or swells in the basement walls, that’s a red flag, and you should get in touch with foundation repair experts for immediate assistance.

    Sloping and Uneven Floors

    The best way to find out if your floor is sloping or uneven is by pouring water onto it. If the water gathers at one spot (or a few different spots), that’s a sign that you have a sloping or uneven floor due to foundation movement. Although it’s not uncommon for some construction workers to do a below-par job in leveling the floors, the water should still manage to spread seamlessly, and it should pique your concern if it doesn’t.

    Foundation Settling

    Foundation settling is an issue in many homes in the Kansas City area. It usually occurs when foundation footings move to unstable grounds. Settling occurs when the moisture levels rise due to heavy rainfall, poor drainage, or even earthquake. Therefore, you have to wait until there are low moisture levels, say drought period, to notice signs of foundation settling. These may include cracks in fireplaces, brick/stone veneers, or sheetrock.

    Besides the basement, you may also notice signs of foundation movement from the structure’s interiors and exteriors. These include:

    • Sticking door and windows
    • Cracks in the drywall
    • Water leakage via cracks
    • Misaligned windows and doors
    • Tilted or leaning chimneys
    • Gaps around the windows and doors
    • Cracks in the brickworks
    • Cracks in ceiling

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

    Some foundation issues result from isolated events like earthquakes or floods. However, most of them usually start as a minor issue but worsen if left alone. Hiring an experienced structural engineer to fix your foundation issues in Kansas City is a wise move as it eliminates the pending dangers and saves a lot of time, money, and resources.

    Here are the main reasons you need to seek the assistance of a qualified structural engineer to repair your foundation:

    Kansas City – a Hotspot for Foundation Problems

    With Harney silt loam soil being the surface upon which most Kansas City homes are built, it is not a surprise that the area is synonymous with foundation problems. The poorly drained soil expands and contracts during high and low moisture seasons, respectively, causing the concrete slab to settle unevenly. Hiring a structural engineer to conduct expert-based inspection and repair comes a long way in guaranteeing your safety and saving you money for potential reconstruction.

    You Get an Engineering Report

    What is more fulfilling than getting your house inspected and repaired by an expert who then drafts a comprehensive engineering report after the project? You’re probably wondering; what use is the report to me? Well, for starters, it raises your property’s market value so that if you plan to sell the home later, you can reap maximally from the transaction. Some financiers also need an engineering report for loan processing or completion of real estate transactions.

    No Conflict of Interest Means Quality Repair Services

    Would you rather hire a contractor who specializes in other projects or a structural engineer who will devote 100% of effort and expertise to repair your foundation? An engineer is only licensed and recognized by the Missouri Society of Professional Engineers to perform specific jobs, so you can rest assured you’ll get the top-quality services for your home’s foundation.

    Cost of Basement Foundation Repair in Kansas City

    The cost of basement foundation repair services in Kansas City may vary depending on some factors. These may include:

    • The extent of the damage
    • The homeowner’s goals
    • The size of the structure

    If the homeowner desires bigger structural repairs such as installing wall anchors, crawl space support posts, and pilings, they may have to dig deeper into their pockets. Some may also decide to go for repairs that protect against moisture, mitigate organic matter, and improve air quality by installing crawl space encapsulation.

    Exterior basement wall waterproofing is another repair option that prevents leaks and counteracts hydrostatic pressure.

    All said and done, the average cost of a minor basement foundation repair in Kansas City usually ranges from $500 to $3,000. However, all-inclusive repair and waterproofing services can cost $3,500 – $7,000, depending on how badly damaged the foundation is.

  • Does the Soil in Kansas City Affect Your Foundation?

    The soil underneath your structure is probably the last thing you want to think of. But the truth is, it affects your foundation more than you can imagine. As we’ve reiterated above, the Kansas City soil may be ideal for agriculture, but not for some homeowners.

    The soil’s poor drainage may cause foundation issues due to periodic expansion and contraction resulting from varying moisture levels. But you don’t have anything to panic about as a qualified structural engineer can correct any defects to restore safety.
