Common Oklahoma City Foundation Problems in Homes

When the foundation of a home slides or becomes offset, this can cause the walls and overall structure of a home to become crooked. This is not a good thing, since the integrity of the home relies on the integrity of the foundation that is holding it all in place. When this shifts, so does the entire house, causing more problems than you can think of.

What Causes These Foundation Problems?

In Oklahoma, the rainy weather that comes and goes, mixed with the soft soil and the other outside factors can cause the homes to shift with time. Pair this with poor plumbing systems and grading when the home was built and the foundation did not have a chance. This causes the foundation to fail with time and may sink into the ground further.

Symptoms of a Failed Foundation

When a foundation of a home is not in the best shape possible, then you need to consider the symptoms that the home might experience. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is best to give us here at OKC Foundation Repair a call to have an assessment done.

Interior Symptoms

  • Sloping or uneven floors throughout
  • Cracks in the walls, floors and ceilings that continue to get larger
  • Walls that bow inwards
  • Floors that sag over a crawl space
  • Windows and doors that are hard to open or completely close and lock

Exterior Symptoms

  • Cracks on the outside exterior walls of the home
  • Chimneys that tilt
  • Creeping streets

All Repairs Start with a Thorough Inspection

With the Oklahoma weather changing so often, it ­ no wonder that the grading being done for the homes is not able to hold the foundation together.
