If you have foundation cracks in your home, this is an obvious sign that your ground soil is shifting and settling underneath your home’s foundation. It may sink a few inches or a couple of feet. What causes this? The pressure of the ground soil outside your foundation can cause cracks due to soil expansion and soil shrinkage. Warning signs include sticking windows and doors, misaligned windows, wall cracks, water leaks, and a chimney that is separating from the structure.
A cracked foundation allows water to enter your home. In addition, it can threaten the safety of your family by causing mold growth. These issues need to be dealt with immediately by trained professionals. At WCI Basement Repairs, we offer basement wall repair services in Iowa.
Most home settlement problems are caused by undersized footings that were installed in the original structure. These footings support the home underground, however, after years of wet and dry conditions they can fail. WCI offers the best solutions for basement wall repair in Iowa. We will assess your situation and recommend the best products for you.
All of our products are made from Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leading manufacturer in today’s foundation and waterproofing industry. We use wall anchors which can help hold back leaning walls. For more problematic foundation issues we offer push piers and helical piers. These piers are driven deep into the ground. Once bedrock is reached they will help to lift your home and provide extra support to your foundation.
