As a foundation settles, many telltale signs will become evident. What follows are some of the most common ways that foundation settlement can become visible to the homeowner. We’re here for all your basement structural repair and much more!
 
Stair-Step Cracking
Stair-step cracking is one of the surest signs of foundation settlement and is very common in brick in concrete block walls.
 
As the settlement continues, vertical cracks may widen or become uneven as wall sections tilt away from each other, indicating more severe displacement.
Keep an eye out for cracks that are wider at the top than at the bottom, as this is a sign of advancing settlement.
 
Tilting Chimneys
Tilting chimneys that are separating from the home are one of the most intimidating and dramatic signs of a settling foundation. Sometimes a chimney is built on a footing that is not connected to the house foundation, making it even more at risk of settlement. More information about tilting, leaning chimney repair.

Damaged Doors & Windows
An opening cut in any wall is a weak point, so signs of foundation settlement often show up around door and window openings located above settlement areas.
 
Doors and windows frames may be racked out of square. Cracks may extend from the corners above doors and windows. Doors may separate from the framing or exterior finish. Other signs of foundation settlement include sticking, jamming doors and windows and locks that stop working.
 
 Slab Floor Cracking
Cracks in your concrete floor slab can be a sign of foundation settlement, but they may also be a sign that the slab floor alone has settled.
 
There are times when your slab floor may sink or lift independently of the foundation walls, damaging the floors but not necessarily the walls.
 
Drywall Cracks
Cracks in drywall throughout the house are reliable indicators of foundation settlement. Foundation cracks will often be larger and more obvious in the home’s upper levels.
 
Typical drywall cracks during foundation settlement are commonly located at the corners of doors and windows and along drywall seams. Drywall tape can also be a good indicator, especially of it’s ripping or coming loose. Drywall cracks can also be a sign of sinking crawl space supports sinking.

My husband and I had about 6 waterproofing companies come out for estimates. All were $6-12,000. The very next day after contacting ARK, Mike Perry ( co-owner) came out himself and gave us THE most reasonable price. He came out with his crew of two young men and what we experienced was by far the most professional, competent and friendly services that included installing drain and pump. And to boot they even jackhammered our front stoop and hauled it away for a nominal cost. Can’t say enough good about this company. I researched Angie’s list and BBB and their ratings are stellar consistently. I experienced exactly what their excellent ratings showed.

Showed up on time and completed work early. Was almost $1000 less than their competitors with almost the process and warranty.

Mark E.

Excellent and honest service provided by Mike and his staff. Mike was knowledgeable, explained the work to be done, and quoted a reasonable price (very much in line with 3 other estimates received). The work was started and finished on time and in a most professional manner. My basement is now dry for the first time in 26 years and I could not be happier with my decision to go with ARK Basement Services.
