Longview, Tyler, and East Texas can be tough on foundations. The clay-filled soil tends to freeze in the winter and then thaw during the summer. This causes soil to shrink and expand. Some years we’ve seen as many as 9” of shrinkage and expansion.
That kind of movement is hard on foundations. In unfortunate situations, you may experience foundation problems, like cracks in your slab, piers, or beams. If left untreated, those cracks will get worse over time. Eventually, you’ll have some serious foundation problems on your hands.
As a local East Texas foundation repair company, we’re familiar with the common foundation problems in the area. We’re able to identify foundation problems early--before they cause a lot of damage.
If you think your home may have cracks in its foundation, contact us today for your consultation. We’ll make sure you understand your foundation’s health, even if it means you don’t need us.
Lone Star Foundation Repair is licensed to handle both slab leveling in Longview and pier and beam foundation repairs. These two types of foundations make up most homes in East Texas. East Texas soil tends to act on these foundations differently, which means they’ll manifest different problems.
If your home has a crawl space, then you have a pier and beam foundation. Pier and beam foundations have concrete piers that go deep into the soil. On top of those piers, or shafts, are cylinders on which the home sits.
In East Texas, pier and beam foundations are pretty stable, but they can still get cracks in them. Our pier and beam foundation leveling services can restore and protect your home.
If you need foundation repair for your pier and beam house, contact us anytime.
Concrete slab foundations are really common in East Texas. They tend to be a little cheaper than pier and beam, but they’re also prone to more long-term problems because of the soil. They’ll frequently develop cracks in them because of the ground shifting. Sometimes those cracks can become a serious foundation problem.
If you need slab concrete leveling services, we’re here to help.
Occasionally in East Texas, a home can come unlevel because the ground has shifted--sometimes permanently. If doors or windows in your home are stuck open or closed, there’s a chance your home may need to be leveled. Leveling your home can often prevent more serious foundation problems down the road.
Diagonal cracks on interior walls are one of the telltale signs of foundation problems. As the house begins to move it causes stress on the walls and weaker areas, like around doors and windows, will shear and crack.
If you notice foundational cracks in the grout of your bricks, you may need to call us for an inspection. These cracks will resemble stairs and, like the diagonal cracks on your interior walls, happen because one side of the house is pulling down and away.
If you notice doors or windows sticking closed or open, you should have a foundation company inspect your home. Foundation problems will pull doors and windows off square. Windows will be stuck open or closed.
If the wood trim on your home’s exterior begins to separate from the rest of your home, you have a foundation problem. When a house shifts substantially, the trim will pull away from the home as walls become less level and less square.
Similar to the exterior trim, fixtures like bookcases, cabinets, and chair rails will also peel away from the wall. As the home’s walls begin to pull off square, the walls will shift and trim and fixtures will separate and pull out nails and screws.
If you're experiencing any of the above issues or have other concerns about your home's foundation, call Lone Star near Longview, Texas. We'll not only prevent these problems from becoming worse, but we will also make your foundation level again.
