  • 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 Holly Springs, North Carolina?

    Unfortunately, foundation movement is a significant risk in Central North Carolina. Homes in Holly Springs, Apex, Cary, Durham Fuquay Varina, Garner, and other nearby cities are affected by ground movement on a regular basis, and property owners are left with costly structural repairs as a result.

  • What Causes Foundation Problems In Holly Springs, North Carolina?

    Numerous factors make foundation issues more widespread in Holly Springs than in many other parts of the United States. We’ll describe the geologic and climatic factors below, along with a description of how each can be detrimental to the concrete under your house.

    Expansive Soil

    North Carolina has a strip of unique, exotic soils that geologists believe were deposited by glaciers hundreds of millions of years ago. The two soils in this arc are distinguishable from each other as well as from the surrounding areas to the east and west.

    Part of Wake County, including all of Holly Springs, falls within one of these soil patterns called the Triassic basin. The soil has an abnormally high concentration of clay particles, making the ground dense and absorbent. The clay-rich earth in Holly Springs presents several issues for home foundations.

    First, clay soil absorbs more water and retains it for longer periods than typical dirt. Runoff from precipitation drains very slowly into the earth and remains in contact with your concrete for days or even weeks after rainfall.

    The longer the exposure times between water and your foundation, the more likely your home is to suffer from water intrusion and moisture damage.

    Second, clay soil expands when it gets wet, meaning that the ground swells and places intense pressure on your concrete block walls and slab. The stress created by the soil’s growth can create dangerous fissures in your concrete and cause severe structural damage over time.

    Lastly, clay soil shrinks when it loses moisture. Runoff naturally drains into the earth and evaporates from the ground, so the ground around your home gradually dries following rainfall. The expansive soil can settle under your foundation and leave your slab or basement floor without even support underneath.

    The result of this erratic movement under your concrete is called differential settling, and it can quickly result in hazardous structural damage.

    Above-Average Rainfall

    The problems with expansive soil are made significantly more severe when the ground’s moisture content increases rapidly or frequently. Unfortunately for homeowners in Holly Springs, the climate lends itself to frequent wetting of the soil.

    The area receives about 45 inches of rainfall annually, significantly higher than the national average. The above-average runoff produced from the precipitation increases the likelihood of water interacting with and seeping through your concrete, and it contributes to ground swelling and the potentially destructive hydrostatic pressure it causes.

    heavy rainfall and flooded street

    Tropical Storms & Hurricanes

    As if the frequent and above-average rainfall wasn’t detrimental enough, Holly Springs residents also experience exceptionally heavy rain during hurricane season. Between the months of June and September, the average monthly rainfall increases by about 30% when hurricanes and tropical storms hit the Southeastern United States.

    The concentrated precipitation during these months drastically increases the risk of water intrusion and swelling soil, mainly because the clay in the ground drains slowly and holds water against your foundation for long periods.

    Multi-Level Foundations

    Lastly, multi-level foundations are common in Holly Spring, including partial basements and cellars. The design choice offers additional living or storage space at a fraction of the price of a full basement, but it also makes differential settling more likely.

    The ground naturally drains runoff and loses moisture at varying rates at different depths. When your home is situated partially near the surface and partly at the full depth of a basement, the surrounding soil is likely to dry out and shrink unevenly across the footprint of your structure.

    The uneven ground movement lends itself to differential settling, instability beneath your home, and structural damage.

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

    There are several common symptoms of foundation damage that can appear in and around your home in Holly Springs. Below, we’ll provide some information on diagnosing each of these and the underlying problem that likely causes them.

    Foundation Cracks

    Physical damage to your foundation in the form of concrete cracks is often what homeowners notice most readily. However, some foundation cracks don’t indicate that you have a severe issue, while others suggest serious structural damage. The gap’s location can help you figure out the severity.

    Cement Floor Cracks

    You might find cracks in your concrete slab if it’s exposed while you’re replacing flooring, but more often than not, you’ll notice these fissures in your crawlspace or basement floor.

    If you see hairline cracks that are flat across the gap, chances are they are from concrete settling and don’t indicate structural issues. Most homeowners in Holly Springs have these sealed by a foundation repair contractor to keep their under-home area dry.

    If cement floor cracks continue to grow on older homes, widen to beyond ⅛” inch, or are unlevel across the gap, they more likely result from differential settling. These irregularities suggest that your foundation’s structural integrity has been compromised, and you’ll likely require stabilization to prevent foundation failure.

    Vertical Foundation Wall Cracks

    Fissures that form on your concrete block walls or that are visible on the exterior of your slab are also almost always from routine settling. The only concern these damages present is water intrusion, so you should opt to have them sealed by a foundation repair contractor with epoxy or polyurethane.

    Horizontal Foundation Wall Cracks

    Fissures running along the length of your foundation wall are typically only visible from underneath your home. They occur when the hydrostatic pressure from saturated soil outside bears too much weight on the wall, causing it to collapse in response. This damage is prevalent in Holly Springs, where clay is abundant in the ground. Unfortunately, it usually requires structural repair.

    Stair-Step Foundation Wall Cracks

    Stair-step cracks develop in a step pattern along the joint lines between concrete blocks in your foundation wall. They suggest that your foundation is suffering from differential settling and that the bottom portion of the wall crack and the slab connected to it are sinking more rapidly into the earth than the rest of your home.

    These cracks are almost always structural and tend to necessitate the most expensive repair costs.

    Wet Basement or Crawlspace

    The absorbent clay soil and above-average rainfall in Holly Springs contribute to a high occurrence of water intrusion and moisture problems for homeowners in the area.

    Liquid water is generally only an issue for homes with crawlspaces and basements unless severe flooding occurs.

    You’ll likely notice standing water under your house, puddles of water on the floor, water visibly entering through foundation cracks, wet spots on the walls or floor, or water damage to items in storage or building materials.

    Water vapor can be a problem for all foundations, including concrete slabs, because runoff can wick through the pores in your concrete in any direction, including upward to the area between your slab and your first floor. If your home is built slab-on-grade, signs of moisture accumulation include moldy odors in your house, water damage where plumbing leaks have been ruled out, and pest infestation.

    signs of water problems in the basement

    If you have a crawlspace or basement, symptoms of moisture build-up include damp air below your house, musty odors, mold growth, efflorescence on the walls, and pest infestation.

    Decreased Indoor Air Quality

    Lastly, the conditions beneath your structure can affect the air in your living space, sometimes helping you identify moisture or water problems. Humidity entering your upper floors can make the air temperature feel more extreme. As such, uncomfortably hot or cold air in the summer or winter – or increased utility bills in response – can suggest moisture accumulation in your crawlspace or basement or above your slab.

    Mold spores working their way into your living space can trigger allergy symptoms. Itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose, and difficulty breathing that isn’t attributed to another problem could help you identify a moisture issue under your house.

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

    All homeowners should be well-versed in identifying foundation damage, especially in Holly Springs, where it’s so widespread. Doing so can help you limit the extent of the problem and the cost to repair it.

    Inspecting your foundation and home for symptoms every three months is one of the most effective ways to monitor for problems. Below, we’ll detail a thorough inspection you can carry out to find and address issues as quickly as possible.

    Inspect the Concrete Thoroughly

    Begin by examining the concrete under your home. Look for cracks or signs of a sinking foundation outside, especially if you don’t have access to the space under your house.

    Continue inside if possible, and look on the foundation walls and crawlspace or basement floor for fissures. We recommend marking the length and width of any cracks with a pencil so that you can tell during your next inspection if they have gotten worse.

    You can also look for efflorescence, mold growth, musty smells, heavy or damp air, standing water, wet concrete, puddles on the floor, pest infestation, and any damage that appears to be from water or moisture in the area.

    Check the Interior of Your Home

    Dangerous settling or shifting of your foundation often results in instability throughout your living space, so you can continue your inspection for irregularities there.

    Look for cracking sheetrock around doors and windows, nail heads popping through the drywall, cabinets or countertops separating from your kitchen or bathroom walls, and doors or windows that get stuck when you open or close them.

    The floor joists under your flooring typically shift or warp in response to foundation movement or changes in moisture, so look for buckling or sloping floors on all levels of your home as well.

    Check Your Home’s Exterior

    You can complete your inspection outside, where we recommend you look for sagging roofing, a cracked or tilting chimney, and fissures forming in your siding.

    cracks on the brick facade

    Your landscaping can help determine if you have a problem with drainage or Holly Springs’ expansive soil. You can check your property for an uneven yard that could indicate differential settling or ground swelling, a leaning or damaged retaining wall from hydrostatic pressure, and puddles forming on the surface of your yard after rainfall, which are a clear sign of inadequate drainage that could contribute to foundation damage.

  • Cost of Basement Foundation Repair In Holly Springs, North Carolina?

    The average cost for foundation repair services in Holly Springs is $5,500, but you may find that your repair bill is significantly higher or lower, depending on the project. We’ll provide some more specific pricing below to help you estimate what your home improvement will cost.

    Cost to Repair Hairline Floor or Vertical Foundation Crack

    Sealing non-structural cracks is the most affordable repair. Most concrete repair specialists in Holly Springs charge between $250 and $750 for this service. Longer or broader gaps may be a bit more expensive, but the cost is generally under $1,000.

    Cost to Repair Heavy or Ongoing Leaks

    Holly Springs homes are plagued with moisture build-up and water intrusion because of the soil and rainfall in the area. A basement waterproofing system is the best solution for limiting the water and water vapor that enters your home.

    The basement system will need to be custom fit to your house, so the cost can be challenging to estimate. However, the average is around $5,500.

    Your system may include a French drain, gutter system, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, crawlspace encapsulation, a vapor barrier, soil gradation, a drain tile, and more. The system’s variability can leave you with an effective strategy or one that isn’t a permanent solution.

    The best option is to choose a foundation repair company that offers a warranty, has positive testimonials, and has years of experience behind them.

    Cost to Repair Bowing Foundation Wall or Horizontal Cracks

    A foundation contractor can often reduce hydrostatic pressure by installing an exterior drainage system, gutters, and downspouts. However, the super-absorbent clay soil in Holly Springs often necessitates more extensive measures. Many homeowners turn to earth anchors to resist additional inward movement of their foundation walls.

    Earth anchors cost around $1,000 each. Your total will typically be between $3,000 and $5,000, depending on the size of your wall.

    Cost to Repair Sinking Foundation or Stair-Step Cracks

    The damages caused by differential settling are best repaired using underpinning, the process of installing push piers under your foundation to provide additional support.

    Steel piers and helical piers both redistribute your structure’s weight deeper into the ground, where settling occurs less frequently.

    Most underpinning jobs cost between $10,000 and $20,000, but your repair may be higher or lower. The price depends on the type and number of piers used and the ease of access to your slab or crawlspace or basement floor.
