  • 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 Greensboro, North Carolina?

    Unfortunately, foundation movement is a prevalent issue in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Durham, Raleigh, Thomasville, Kernersville, Knoxville, High Point, and many other nearby cities. North Carolina homeowners regularly experience problems under their homes and face expensive repairs as a result.

  • What Causes Foundation Problems In Greensboro, North Carolina?

    There are a few factors that create issues in the North Carolina Triad, each often resulting in a different type of foundation damage. We’ll discuss each of these factors in-depth below.

    Expansive Soil

    One of the most widespread factors that causes foundation damage throughout the country is expansive soil. Expansive soil grows in volume when it gets wet and shrinks when it dries, sometimes creating excessive ground movement that can be detrimental to foundations.

    There’s an arc of exotic soil in North Carolina believed to have been deposited by glaciers several hundred million years ago. The two distinct soil patterns are referred to as the

    Triassic basin and the Carolina terrane, the latter of which covers most of Guilford County. The soil in this region has a high concentration of clay, making it a highly expansive soil. This presents three significant risks for foundations in Greensboro.

    First, clay soil absorbs runoff readily and expands when it gets wet. It can increase in volume up to about 10%, putting excess pressure on your foundation walls. The stress can cause inward wall movement and even collapse.

    Second, expansive soil loses volume when it dries. If too much water in the ground evaporates or drains, the soil can shrink away from your foundation and leave it unsupported. This often occurs around the edges of your property and can cause differential settling, causing portions of your home to sink into the ground more rapidly than others.

    Lastly, the clay in Greensboro dirt holds moisture for more extended periods than non-expansive soil. When runoff is held against your concrete, it can seep in through settling cracks or wick through solid concrete and enter your home.

    Above-Average Rainfall & Drought

    Greensboro and much of North Carolina experiences almost 45 inches of rain annually, nearly 50% higher than the national average. Water and foundations don’t mix well, so the above-average amount of precipitation in Greensboro can create severe issues for homeowners. Excessive runoff not only damages concrete over time as it freezes, but it can easily seep into your crawlspace or basement and create moisture build-up inside.

    Heavy rainfall

    While rainfall can be a problem, a lack of it can be even worse. Northern parts of North Carolina are prone to drought, which dries the soil and can cause dangerous differential settling. Sections of concrete can be left unsupported by the earth, eventually leading to the cracking and sinking of your foundation.

    Rainfall and drought can damage foundations anywhere in the country. However, the combination of these issues with expansive soil in the Carolina terrane increases the potential for water damage and foundation problems for Greensboro property owners.

    Multi-Level Foundations

    Some Greensboro residents have full basements or crawlspaces, but unlike many other parts of the country, multi-level foundations are also standard. The split design is convenient and far cheaper to install than a full basement, but it leaves your home more prone to foundation problems.

    The issue arises because your concrete is supported by soil at varying depths. Ground settling depends mainly on the water content in the earth, so the moisture levels can vary significantly under different parts of your house. As such, differential settling can cause sinking foundations, cracking, and loss of structural integrity.

    Once again, the inherent issues with multi-level foundations are compounded by the presence of expansive soil, posing an additional risk for homeowners in Greensboro.

    High Humidity

    Lastly, Greensboro experiences an average humidity of around 75%, with a relatively high dew point as well. This combination means the air can – and regularly does – hold an above-average amount of moisture.

    Moisture can be a problem in any part of the home, but basements and crawlspaces are especially prone to moisture build-up. Elevated humidity under your house can stimulate mold growth, attract pests like termites and rodents, and damage building material like floor joists and framing over time.

    The expansive soil can contribute to humidity in your basement or crawlspace, as it can hold water against your concrete and force water inside via hydrostatic pressure on your basement walls.

  • What Are The Signs of Basement Foundation Damage In Greensboro, North Carolina?

    There are many symptoms you can find throughout your home that can indicate foundation damage. We’ll discuss these in detail below and offer some insight into what the underlying cause may be.

    Foundation Cracks

    Cracks in the concrete below your home are typically the most obvious signs of foundation damage. The location and width of the gap can help determine the underlying cause of the problem.

    Hairline Floor Cracks & Vertical Wall Cracks

    Thin cracks form on most foundations due to the natural settling process of the concrete. Hairline cracking in your slab or vertically-oriented gaps in your foundation wall usually signify normal settling and aren’t a severe problem. Most homeowners simply have a foundation repair contractor seal them to prevent water intrusion.

    Horizontal Wall Cracks

    Cracks running parallel to the basement or crawlspace floor are caused by hydrostatic pressure, typically indicating a problem with expansive soils outside. Horizontal cracks are considered structural damage and should be stabilized by a concrete repair expert immediately.

    Stair-Step Wall Cracks or Uneven Floor Cracks

    Lastly, gaps can form in a step pattern on your foundation wall if you have differential settling of the soil around your house. The same underlying problem can cause wide cracks in your slab, often uneven from one side to the other. These also indicate a loss of structural integrity and require professional basement or crawlspace repair as quickly as possible.

    Moist or Wet Basement or Crawlspace

    Water intrusion is one of the most widespread foundation problems for homeowners in most parts of the country, including North Carolina. The expansive soil, above-average rainfall, and high, year-round humidity all contribute to Greensboro’s moisture problems.

    You may notice water pooling on the floor of your crawlspace or basement, damp air when you enter the space, or musty odors, all of which are signs of moisture build-up. Humid air creates a breeding ground for mold, so you might also see spores growing on the foundation walls or other building materials.

    If water vapor or small amounts of liquid water are coming through your concrete, they tend to leave efflorescence on the walls. Efflorescence is a deposit of minerals, and it appears as a white, sometimes fluffy substance in the shape of water stains.

    Lastly, moisture attracts insects and other pests, so an infestation under your home can indicate that you have a problem with humidity in your basement or crawlspace.

  • How to Find Signs of Foundation Damage In Greensboro, North Carolina?

    Severe foundation damage rarely occurs in a single instance but instead starts as a minor issue and worsens over time. One of the best ways to keep repair costs to a minimum and reduce the damage to your home is to repair small problems before they become severe ones. Below are some tips for identifying foundation issues in your home as early as possible.

    Monitor Your Foundation

    Many homeowners neglect their unfinished basements or crawlspaces because they’re out of sight and out of mind, but the best way to mitigate damage under your home is to inspect the space regularly.

    Once every three or four months, check the visible portion of your concrete outside for cracks, signs of sinking, and any other irregularities. If you have access to the area under your home, head down there next and look for signs of damage. Pay attention to damp air, condensation on pipes, mold growth, pest infestations, efflorescence, or pooling water.

    You should also inspect the walls and floor for cracks.

    Report any gaps you find to a foundation repair company so they can examine them and treat them appropriately, either by sealing with epoxy or carrying out a structural repair.

    Look for Symptoms in Your Living Space

    Your foundation supports your home’s structure, so issues below the surface are often visible above. Once you finish your foundation inspection, check your upper floors for signs of problems.

    Look for drywall cracks around window and door frames and around the corners of your rooms. These can indicate foundation movement, and the shifting of your framing out of square.

    Hydrostatic pressure problems – like horizontal cracks and bowing foundation walls – can cause your upper-level walls to bulge. This movement can result in nails popping out of your sheetrock and cabinets or countertops pulling away from walls.

    Lastly, inspect your floors for any buckling or sagging, both of which can signify dangerous foundation movement.

    Check Your Home’s Exterior for Problems

    Lastly, walk outside of your house and look for signs of problems or potential ground movement. Inspect the roofing for signs of sagging or unevenness, ensure the chimney isn’t pulling away from your house, and keep an eye out for cracking or crumbling of brick or stucco siding.

    The ground around your property can help predict problem areas as well. Look for gaps between the soil and your concrete, which are a sign of dry soil and can be a precursor to differential settling. If you have a retaining wall or raised garden bed, check to make sure that the walls aren’t leaning, which is a sign of expansive soil issues on your property.

    Take a special trip outside after or during rainfall to look for wet or soggy portions of your lawn that indicate drainage problems.

  • Cost of Basement Foundation Repair In Greensboro, North Carolina?

    The average cost of foundation repair in Greensboro is around $5,000, but the price varies significantly with the extent of the damage, the type of repair needed, the warranty offered, and sometimes with the years of experience a contractor has. We’ll break down the average pricing for typical foundation repair services in the area.

    Cost to Seal Foundation Cracks

    A crack in your foundation can be sealed to prevent water intrusion if it’s determined that it isn’t structural. Most foundation repair contractors in the area charge between $250 and $750, depending on the length and width.

    Cost to Repair Horizontal Foundation Crack or Bowing Wall

    Horizontally-oriented wall cracks and bowing foundation walls require stabilization with earth anchors, which pull the wall outward to help resist the hydrostatic pressure outside. Anchors cost around $1,000 to install, so your total price can range from $1,000 to around $5,000, depending on how many you need.

    Cost to Repair Stair-Step Cracks or Unlevel Floor Cracks

    Foundation sinking, which can be identified by stair-stepping cracks in the wall or uneven floor cracks, is usually repaired using underpinning or piling. A pier installer will place pilings below your foundation to provide support from underneath. Steel piers cost around $1,000 each, while helical piers can reach up to approximately $3,000 each. Most sinking foundations require around five piers for a total cost between $5,000 and $15,000.

    Cost to Fix Ongoing Water Problems

    Water intrusion is a common issue in Greensboro, so many foundation repair companies rely on comprehensive basement waterproofing systems. These often include sump pumps, vapor barriers, crawlspace encapsulation, an exterior drainage system, dehumidifiers, and several other methods for limiting water and water vapor under your home.

    Basement systems aren’t all the same and can vary in pricing. Some cheaper options may run around $1,500. However, the best solutions will be closer to $5,000. Since water problems are so common in Greensboro, it’s best to select a foundation repair company with years of experience, is accredited with the Better Business Bureau, and has positive reviews from past customers.
