A home’s foundation should give you and your family peace of mind. It should make you feel confident that your home isn’t going anywhere.
When your home’s slab foundation experiences problems, that confidence slowly disintegrates.
Have you noticed:
If so, these are signs of possible slab foundation problems.
If your home develops slab foundation issues, it could result in costly repair expenses, insect infestations, moisture build up, decreased home value, and, most importantly, it could put your family at risk.

Several issues can lead to a damaged slab foundation.
If you live in the Tyler, Longview, or East Texas area, your structure's foundation is subject to seasonal wet and dry cycles. The clay soil expands and shrinks with these cycles, and can lead to soil shrinkage over time.
Another issue is poor compaction of fill soil. Before your slab was laid, some of the soil layers may have compacted due to the weight of fill layers above alone. Once carrying the weight of the slab, they may have compacted further. Once this occurs, the slab is no longer supported properly and can crack and drop.
Soil wash-out can also affect your slab, especially if a household plumbing leak develops and goes undetected over time.
If you notice dips in your floors or creaks when you walk across them, you should call us. Our foundation inspections are free, but they may save you a major headache later on.
Have you noticed broken tiles in your kitchen or bathroom lately? It could be a slab problem.
You’ve probably seen the cracks that are shaped like a stair-case along a brick wall or foundation? Some like the look. They consider it “character” and “charm.” However, these cracks can cause much bigger problems the longer you leave them unaddressed.
No, the door or window isn’t just old. If it’s getting stuck, it’s because your house is crooked, which is one of the primary symptoms of slab foundation problems.
Have you noticed some other problem that you believe may be related to your foundation? Give us a call. A foundation inspection is free, and even if there are no problems, it can give you peace of mind, knowing that your home is taken care of.
These signs are not typical for a healthy home, and can indicate much larger problems.
