Structural Settlement Issues Addressed by Ox Foundation Solutions

Stair-Step Cracking: Stair-step cracking is one of the surest signs of foundation settlement. It is very common with bricks and concrete block walls. Typically, vertical cracks widen or become uneven as wall sections tilt away from each other, indicating more severe displacement. Note the cracks that are wider at the top than at the bottom. This is a sign of advancing settlement.

Tilting Chimneys: Tilting chimneys that separate from the home offer a dramatic sign of a settling foundation. Sometimes, a chimney is built on a footing that is not connected to the house foundation. The enormous weight of a chimney can make it even more at risk of settlement.

Damaged Doors & Windows: Signs of foundation settlement often show up around door and window openings. Doors and window frames may be racked out of the square. Cracks may extend from the corners above doors and windows. Doors may separate from the framing or exterior finish. Other signs include sticking, jamming doors and windows, and locks that stop working.

Slab Floor Cracking: Cracks in your concrete floor slab can be a sign of foundation settlement. There are times when your slab floor may sink or lift independently of the foundation walls, damaging the floors but not necessarily the foundation walls themselves.

Drywall Cracks: Cracks in drywall throughout the house are reliable indicators of foundation settlement. Cracks will often be larger and more obvious in the home's upper levels. Typical drywall cracks during foundation settlement are commonly located at the corners of doors and windows and along drywall seams. Loose drywall tape can also be a good indicator. Drywall cracks can also be a sign of sinking crawl space supports, sinking floors, and heaving floors.
