Tyler and East Texas can be difficult on home foundations. The soil, predominantly red clay, is more susceptible to changes in temperature. When it’s outside, the clay expands and takes up more space. When it’s cold outside, the clay contacts by as much as 9 inches in East Texas.
This can wreak havoc on house foundations in East Texas, leaving cracks in slabs, piers, beams, and everything else that keeps your home protected.
Everyone at Lone Star Foundation Repair is an East Texas native, though, and has extensive experience working with the unique nature of foundation problems in Tyler. We know the soil and how to work with it to ensure your foundation repairs last.
If you’re concerned about your home’s foundation, contact us today and let us see if we can’t help keep your family safe.
Concrete slab foundations are perhaps the most common in Tyler. They’re strong, simple, and cost-effective. However, because of the nature of the East Texas soil, these foundations are prone to cracking as the ground contracts between the summer and winter.
If your house has a crawl space beneath it, it’s probably sitting on top of a pier and beam foundation. Pier and beam foundations feature concrete or steel cylinders driven deep into the ground. In places like Tyler, pier and beam foundations are more stable but not invulnerable.
Home leveling is closely related to foundation repair. If you notice doors or windows sticking shut or if your floor is beginning to slope gently, then you probably need a house leveling company. Luckily, Lonestar Foundation Repair can help. We provide home leveling and foundation leveling services in Tyler.
While the best way to determine if you have any foundation cracks or other foundational problems is to hire a licensed foundation contractor to inspect your home, some key symptoms indicate your home requires foundation repair.
If your home has one of these symptoms, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s any danger. If you see multiple, you should probably contact a licensed foundation company near you to give your home a full inspection.
If you notice diagonal cracks in your walls, especially around door and window frames, then you should consider getting your home inspected. When your house has a foundation problem and shifts, the stress on weaker areas--like doors--creates cracks as the bottom of the house pulls away from the roof and sides.
If you have a brick exterior and notice telltale diagonal “stair step” cracks in the grout, then you may have foundation problems. As the house settles into the foundation problem, bricks will pull away from each other, much like interior walls will.
When there’s a foundation problem, doors will frequently stop closing, opening, or latching. A home with foundation problems will have doors that behave oddly because the doorframe is no longer square. Of course, doors can do this for a lot of reasons, though. It’s best to check with a professional.
If you notice your home’s exterior trim “pulling away” from sections of your house, you may have a foundation problem. When a house shifts substantially, the trim separates from the home because gravity is pulling the wall away.
Much like the exterior trim, interior trim, and fixtures--cabinets, built-in bookshelves, and chair rails--may pull away from the wall where the foundation is falling n. If you notice fixtures pulling away from the wall, call a professional to take a look.
