FOUNDATIONS WE Service

PIER FOUNDATIONS

Pier foundations are supported underneath by large concrete pillars known as piers. Sometimes, foundations of any type may need additional piers added later on as the foundation settles. Learn more about pier foundations here.

CONCRETE SLAB

Unlike some other foundation types, concrete slab foundations have no pen space under the house; the floor sits directly on the slab, which sits directly on the ground. This type of foundation tends to be straightforward and budget-friendly. Click here to learn more about concrete slab foundations.

BASEMENT FOUNDATIONS

Basements are common in Wheaton. Basements can be made with concrete or cinder blocks and may be finished or unfinished. To learn more about basement foundations, click here.

CRAWL SPACE FOUNDATION

Like basements, crawl space foundations provide storage space under the house. Unlike basements, crawl spaces tend to have low overhead without room to stand up. A crawl space foundation may have a dirt or concrete slab floor. To learn more about crawl space foundations, click here.

WOOD FOUNDATION

A permanent wood foundation (PWF) tends to be more budget-friendly than other options. A PWF can be all wood or have a concrete slab floor for the basement. Have questions about wood foundations? Click here.

COMMON FOUNDATION ISSUES

CRACKS OR CRUMBLING

What It Is: Foundation cracks or crumbling (sometimes called spalling) are areas of visible damage to your foundation. What Causes It: Some cracks may be caused by the foundation settling over time. Others might be caused by natural phenomena, like severe weather or extreme temperatures. Crumbling is typically caused by moisture and might worsen if the moisture in your foundation freezes. Signs to Look For: You might notice cracking or crumbling in various locations. There may be issues on the foundation itself (inside or outside), on your basement floor, or even on your driveway. If you notice any cracking or crumbling, contact Regional Foundation Repair, and we can investigate and determine whether or not professional repair is necessary.

leaks

What It Is: Leaks are fairly straightforward: water getting into your basement or crawl space where it shouldn't be. Leaks can be large or small, and you might have one or several. What Causes It: Leaks are caused by gaps or cracks in your foundation that allow water in. Some cracks may form over time as the ground shifts, while others might be caused by external forces like severe weather and pests. If you've previously had your foundation or basement waterproofed, the seal may have a gap somewhere. Signs to Look For: You might find water inside, or you might notice white trails on the concrete left from minerals carried by the water. Click here for our guide to identifying, preventing, and fixing leaks.

Here's a great video showing how professionals repair a concrete crack, a common foundation issue:

UNEVEN FLOORS OR CEILINGS

What It Is: You might notice that your floors or ceiling are no longer level, and this may be more pronounced the lower in your house you get. What Causes It: This is typically due to foundation settling. If the soil under one area of your foundation is more compacted, that part of your house will sink lower into the ground. This could be caused by things like soil quality or uneven moisture distribution. Signs to Look For: You may be able to visually tell that your floors or ceiling are uneven. You may also notice baseboards and molding peeling away from the wall or doors jamming when you try to open or close them.

CRACKED, BUCKLING, OR BOWING WALLS

What It Is: If there's too much pressure on your foundation, the walls may begin to bow over time. Generally, if this happens, you should call a professional as soon as possible. What Causes It: Problems with your walls are almost always caused by pressure. Normally, issues are caused by a combination of pressure from your house sitting on your foundation and the dirt pressing around it. The problem can get worse if Wheaton gets unusually heavy rain. Signs to Look For: You may be able to visually tell that your walls are bowling or bulging-if you're unsure, you can use a level to check your interior walls. You can also use a level or square where the wall meets the floor to see if the wall is tilting or the floor is uneven. You may notice cracks on interior walls, exterior walls, or both. You might also notice that doors and cabinets are no longer shutting properly.

STICKING DOORS AND WINDOWS

What It Is: Doors and windows may sit askew in their frames and stick when you open and close them. What Causes It: A foundation settling unevenly can cause floors and walls to slant. This can obstruct the path of a door opening and closing, or distort door frames and window frames. Signs to Look For: Windows and exterior doors may let in a draft. Doors and windows may be difficult to open or close, and doors may seem to drag along the floor when being opened and shut.

MOLD, MILDEW, AND WATER DAMAGE

What It Is: Water damage refers to any damage caused by water flowing over the same path over and over or getting anywhere it isn't supposed to. Mold and mildew growth tends to happen in areas with a lot of moisture and can be hazardous to your health. What Causes It: Water getting into places where it shouldn't be, especially over an extended period of time, will lead to water damage. Water building up and standing in corners, cracks, or other areas can encourage mold and mildew growth. Excess humidity can also contribute to these problems. Signs to Look For: If you notice new damage around your foundation or basement, monitor the area for moisture, especially during and after rain. Mold or mildew may appear as black or white spots on concrete and can produce a damp or musty smell. If your basement is unusually humid or you notice things like condensation or peeling wallpaper), it's a good idea to have a professional inspection.

How long does a foundation repair take?

Most foundation repairs take between one and several weeks to complete. The timeline is highly variable depending on the nature of the problem, the root cause, the size of your house, and other factors. When you contact Regional Foundation Repair for a free inspection, one of our experts can give you an estimate of how long your repairs may take.

What is foundation settling?

Foundation settling occurs over time as the weight of a house compacts the dirt underneath it, causing the foundation to sink over time. This might account for the occasional creaking sounds you hear from your home. This process happens very slowly, so keep an eye out for any issues caused by settling, such as floor cracks or doors and windows that start sticking. If you notice any of these signs, contact Regional Foundation Repair for a free inspection to determine what your foundation needs.

Are some foundations unrepairable?

There are some cases where a foundation cannot be repaired. Usually, this occurs when the cost to fix the foundation would be much higher than the value the repairs would add to the home. If you suspect this is the case, we highly suggest speaking with a local foundation expert before making any decisions. A local professional can assess your foundation and recommend next steps.

When should you walk away from foundation problems?

If you're looking to purchase a home that has foundation problems, deciding when to walk away is a personal decision. It's important to get inspection results so you can determine how much repairs would cost and learn if there are any immediate safety concerns.

How much does basement waterproofing cost in Wheaton, IL?
