Foundation Repair in Bloomington, IN
Regardless of the type of foundation you have, its job is to support your floors, walls, and everything in the living area of your home. If you notice foundation problem signs, they won’t go away with time and will only lead to serious structural damage.
The soil type and climate in Bloomington does not do homeowners any favors. The above-average rainfall and varied soil types mean homeowners need to be on guard for issues with both soil washout and hydrostatic pressure. However, there is good news, our team at Indiana Foundation Services has nearly three decades of experience stabilizing foundations for homeowners in Bloomington. Over the years, they have seen and repaired it all, so even the most damaged foundations are no match for the custom solutions IFS has to offer.

Foundation Problem Signs in Bloomington
Since the foundation of your home may be below ground, you may think there is no way to notice foundation problems. However, there are several easy problem signs to spot in your Bloomington home without having to view your foundation. Look for bowing walls, wall cracks, sticking doors and windows, mold, and a tilting-leaning chimney. It’s important to recognize these signs are not superficial and are a result of an unsound foundation. Choosing to wait, rather than call the experts at IFS means the problems will continue to worsen over time
Foundation walls move inward primarily due to expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure on the walls from outside.
While there are many issues that can lead to sticking windows and doors, the two most common foundation-related causes are settlement and crawl space supports that have settled, shifted, or deteriorated.
If you have a crawl space and the floors above are out of level, you may have a structural problem in your crawl space.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Bloomington
Since your home’s foundation is open to the elements, it’s the area’s soil and climate that causes your foundation damage. Bloomington’s soil is a combination of strongly acidic soil with a loamy, well-drained topsoil, to a very deep, poorly drained subsoil. The area also receives about 48 inches of rain and 17 inches of snow annually, which is well above the national average. This combination of environmental elements means your foundation is both at risk of soil washout and hydrostatic pressure. Soil washout occurs when the soil beneath your home washes away because of poor drainage and voids are created. Your home will eventually sink into these voids, causing settlement problems.
Hydrostatic pressure is a result of heavy rain and poorly draining soil applying pressure to the foundation walls. This pressure causes bowing and cracking, allowing water to enter and cause mold.
Expansive soils can have a seriously negative effect on your foundation, floors, and home overall. Check out what’s causing this soil issue on your property.
Soils are composed of different ingredients like sand, silt, loam and clay. These ingredients determine how soils behave under wet and dry conditions and when they need to support weight.
Foundation upheaval can lift an entire structure, but more often it forces parts of a foundation or slab upwards, while other sections remain stationary. Either way, the damage that results will require the expertise of a foundation repair specialist.
