One of the signs that you may have a foundation settlement problem, is when your baseboard trim is pulling away from your floor. A home settlement issue is caused when the soil beneath the foundation changes and shifts. When soil becomes too wet, it will heave and swell. When soil becomes too dry, it shrinks. As the soil beneath the foundation keeps shifting and moving, so does the foundation that is above it. This causes structural damage throughout the home. Some of these signs are:

  • Cracks in the drywall
  • Cracks in the floor
  • Sloping or uneven floors
  • Leaning chimney
  • Cracks in brickwork
  • Gaps around doors or windows
  • Bowing or leaning walls

All of these are signs that you need to have a professional come in and take a look at your foundation. The experts at AMC911 Crawl Space & Foundation Repair will come and give you a free inspection and see if the issue is a foundation problem.

Baseboard Trim Pulling Away from the Floor Repair in Virginia

AMC911 Crawl Space & Foundation Repair offers foundation repair using underpinning products such as steel push piers, helical piers, and plate anchors.

Steel push piers are sometimes referred to as micro piles or resistance piers. They are driven hydraulically into the soil through the unstable soil layers until they reach a more solid soil layer. They use the structural weight of the building as a reaction force. Each pier is individually load tested after installation. After all of the piers are installed, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers to level and stabilize the structure. Your home or business will be free from settling for many years to come.

Helical piers consist of a shaft where one or more helical plates are attached. They look like a large screws. They are an ideal foundation repair solution for porches, steps, stairs, and chimneys.

Plate anchors are used to repairing bowing or leaning walls. They are installed by drilling a small hole into the interior wall then with exterior excavation, the wall is pulled back to its original level and the wall will be strengthened so that it will stay at the level.
