Shifting and unstable foundations are revealed in a variety of ways. Windows and doors start to stick and become hard to open or develop gaps when fully closed. Floors start to slant and become uneven. Chimneys and walls begin to lean slightly. Basement walls and ceiling joints develop cracks. To prevent potential foundation problems and expensive damage to the home, homeowners should contact a Houston foundation repair specialist as soon as these signs are noticed. The foundation companies profiled below received exceedingly positive reviews from their past and current customers in Best Pick Reports’ unbiased research.
Causes of foundation problems are as varied as the signs of foundation problems. Major and minor leaks in the home’s plumbing system can lead to unwanted drainage issues that weaken the foundation’s integrity. Houston’s Gulf Coast clay soil also tends to swell or shrink depending on the weather and season which then allows the foundation to shift or sink over time. Houston foundation repair companies will take these factors into account when determining the perfect solution for each home.
