Signs of foundation problems
Wall Cracks, floor cracks, celling cracks, sticking doors, cracks in brick, sloping floors that need leveling, loose or cracked floor tile, trim separation, gaps around wondow frames and garage doors, and interior or exterior cracks in the concrete slab.
Limitations of underpinning and foundation repair
The impact of lifting a foundation is generally limited to 6-8 feet from the installed pier or piling. Outside of the underpinned area the foundation is free to move. When, for instance, the left front corner of a square house is underpinned, the remainder of the house can continue to settle. Cracks in brick can reappear in the same areas or at the location of the last installed pier. Other portions of the house can sag, while the underpinned area is stabilized from downward movement.
Underpinning cannot stop heaving, which is upward movement of the foundation due to moisture-induced soil expansion. Foundation heave/upheaval, is common in Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie,
Mesquite, Plano, Richardson, Irving, and surrounding North Texas areas.
