Common signs of foundation problems in Fallbrook, CA
The signs of foundation problems can show up, and once they do, it is typically because the problem is advanced. When you see one of the following signs, it is not necessarily the end of the world but if you see multiple issues showing up, it’s time to address the issue.
Floors can slope due to high moisture levels and a number of other issues dealing with foundation problems. You might not even notice the change, but you might feel like you have vertigo when you walk across the room.
Gaps may appear where the surfaces come together due to the torque put on the frame when the foundation shifts.
The main frame of the home is not the only part of the structure under pressure when the foundation shifts. The window and door frames can also twist, causing the windows and doors to stick.
The chimney is heavy and the foundation under it is not typically supported as well as the rest of the foundation. It is one of the first parts of the home to experience problems.
Retaining walls can also have similar problems to what a foundation may experience. This includes hydrostatic pressure from wet soil. The pressure can cause the wall to crack and buckle.
The entire house can move and settle along with the foundation. The shifting and pressure can cause cracks to appear anywhere in the home but it tends to happen with softer material, such as drywall.
What does the foundation repair process look like?
We look at each foundation repair job as being unique. There may be some specifics that are similar from one job to the next, such as underpinning the foundation and repairing any cracks, but the specific process may be different for the job to get done right.
Common methods for foundation repair
Although each job will have its own specific requirements, there are some common methods for foundation repair. First of all, any problem leading to foundation issues must be addressed. This can include underpinning the foundation or redirecting water using French drains.
The goal is the same in every foundation repair job, to correct the problem and stabilize the foundation. To achieve this goal, we will inspect the foundation and then use one or more of the methods for foundation repair listed below.

When the soil is not stable enough to support the foundation, we can drive pins into the ground until they are in stable soil or resting on bedrock. After those piers are attached to the foundation, they provide the stable support your structure needs.
Foundation cracks will often grow and can allow water to enter the basement or crawlspace. We can permanently close those cracks using carbon fiber staples and then fill them with epoxy injections.
When a foundation sinks, it doesn’t often do so at the same rate, something known as differential settlement. We can level the foundation, but rarely can it be lifted to its original height. Some foundation leveling methods include underpinning and polyurethane foam soil injections.
There are often times when it may be necessary to repair the crawlspace. Some common methods include seismic retrofitting, crawl space jack installation, post and pad replacement, and stem wall repair.
In most cases, foundations can be repaired but there are times when a foundation replacement is necessary. This involves removing the old foundation in place and building the new one. The specifics may differ, but the goal is the same.
Basement foundations, push piers, helical piers, and drilled shafts are all examples of deep foundation systems. The goal is to have the foundation deep enough that it will support the structure.
Most of our focus is on residential foundation repair but we offer the same services to commercial buildings and properties in Fallbrook.
