    Great and a very important article.This type of foundation wall damage is serious and will continue to get worse if neglected. Depending on what part of the country you are in, your home may be more susceptible to these issues. Cracks in walls,or in your fireplace bricks.Windows aren't fitting squarely.Cracks at the base of the house.Standing water around the house or a leaky roof. If the roof drains into the yard, the water stays and doesn't diffuse. So when it comes to your home don't ignore foundation damage.Consulting a specialist should be done with utmost priority .A expert should be able help you minimize damages and plan repairs which is both cost effective and permanent.

    I wish they had also touched on other soils, like our sandy soil here in Michigan. We have some of these same issues here to.

  • The methods of repairs are pretty much the same in sandy soil as others. Its just that the coils used to secure and support the foundation are put in deeper to provide the support that is required for the soil. Not a low cost repair and many times not required but its nice to know there are fixes for failing foundations.
