Top 5 Signs Your Home Needs Foundation Repair: Don't Ignore a Shaky Foundation!

A strong foundation is the silent hero of your San Antonio home. It provides stability, prevents cracks, and ensures a safe living environment.  But just like anything else, foundations can weaken over time due to various factors.

Here at Stonehouse Foundation Repair, we want to empower San Antonio homeowners to recognize the signs of potential foundation problems.  Knowing these signs can help you address them early on, preventing more extensive and costly repairs down the road.

So, how do you know if your foundation needs a little TLC?  Look out for these top 5 warning signs:

  1. Cracks in Walls or Floors:  Hairline cracks in your foundation walls, basement floors, or crawl space walls can be a sign of settlement or movement.  While not all cracks are cause for immediate alarm, significant cracks (wider than ¼ inch) or those that seem to be growing deserve a professional evaluation.
  2. Uneven Floors:  Do your floors feel uneven or sloped?  This  can indicate foundation settlement,  where one area of the foundation is sinking more than another.  Uneven floors can also lead to problems with doors and windows sticking or not closing properly.
  3. Doors and Windows That Stick or Won't Close:  Doors and windows that suddenly become difficult to open or close can be a sign of foundation movement.  As the foundation shifts, the frames of your doors and windows may become warped, causing them to stick or not latch properly.
  4. Gaps Around Exterior Doors or Windows:  Take a walk around your home's exterior and check for any gaps around door or window frames.  These gaps can indicate foundation settlement, allowing water and pests to enter your home.
  5. Water Damage:  Water is a major enemy of foundations.  Pooling water around your foundation or leaks in your basement can lead to erosion and weaken the foundation over time.  If you notice signs of water damage, it's crucial to address the source and inspect your foundation for potential damage.
