Foundation Repair - Signs of Foundation Problems and How to Fix Them | Ask the Expert | Badger Basement Systems

Becky Peck is a certified foundation repair expert, and Executive Sales Manager for Badger Basement Systems - a locally owned basement waterproofing and foundation repair company serving Wisconsin for the past 30 years.

In this episode of Ask The Expert, Becky talks about different signs of foundation problems and Badger Basement Systems' permanent solutions to fix them.

Common signs of foundation failure include horizontal or vertical cracks in concrete walls, horizontal and stair step cracks in cinderblock or brick walls, crumbling mortar, drywall cracks, as well as doors and windows that stick or are out of square.

Clay soils in Wisconsin are known to cause serious foundation movement and subsequent damage to property, because they expand when wet and shrink when dry.

The first step is to determine whether the cracks and signs indicate foundation settlement or a bowing wall problem.

If the foundation is sinking, Badger Basement Systems offers foundation piers system that can quickly and effectively stabilize, support and in many cases even lift the foundation back into its original position.

For bowing basement walls, the company offers wall braces and wall anchor systems that will put a stop on the bowing wall problem and in many cases pull them back straightening them overtime.
