What is a Sinking and Settling Foundation?

A sinking and settling foundation is a structural foundation problem that occurs when the ground beneath a building moves or shifts, causing the foundation to sink or settle unevenly. This movement can be caused by various factors such as soil shrinkage or expansion, poor soil compaction, poor drainage or water damage, or the presence of underground water.
 

As the foundation sinks or settles, it can cause cracks in the walls, uneven floors, and other structural issues in the building. If left untreated, a sinking and settling foundation can lead to serious damage and compromise the integrity of the entire structure. Professional help and appropriate foundation repairs are often necessary to rectify this problem.

When to Seek Settling Foundation Repair Services

Signs that Your Foundation is Sinking or Settling

Settling or sinking foundation is a serious issue that must be addressed by professional engineers and contractors. If you suspect that you have a sinking or settling foundation, make sure to contact professionals immediately. Some of the common signs of settling and sinking foundation include:
 

  • Cracks in the walls or ceilings - look for cracks that appear in a stair-step pattern or are wide.

  • Uneven or sloping floors - if you notice that your floors are uneven or sloping, it could be a sign that the foundation has shifted.

  • Doors and windows that stick - if your doors and windows suddenly become difficult to open or close, it may be due to the foundation settlement.

  • Gaps around doors and windows - if you notice gaps between the frames of your doors and windows, it could be a result of the foundation moving.

  • Cracks in the exterior brickwork or foundation - check for cracks in the exterior brickwork or foundation, as these can indicate foundation issues.

  • Leaning or tilting chimney - if your chimney is leaning or tilting away from the rest of the house, it could be a sign of foundation movement.

  • Basement floor cracks or bowing walls - in homes with basements, look for cracks in the basement floor or bowing walls, as these are common signs of foundation problems.
     

If you notice any of these signs, it is recommended to consult with a professional foundation contractor to assess the situation and determine the appropriate course of action.

Sinking Foundation Repair Potential Options to Consider

Copy of Basement-Underpinning-Toronto-In-Progress-min.jpg

Underpinning involves stabilizing the foundation by installing additional support below the existing foundation. This can be done using various techniques such as helical piers, push piers, or slab piers. These piers are driven deep into the ground until they reach a stable soil layer to support and lift the foundation.

Slab-Pier-Installation-Toronto.jpg

Slab Pier Installation

In some cases, slab piers may be used to repair foundation. For example, if the ground the foundation settles, this may cause the slab to settle as well, which in turn leads to cracked basement floors.

Foundation-Grouting-Ontario.jpg

Foundation Grouting

 In cases where the settling is caused by voids or gaps beneath the foundation, grouting may be used. This involves injecting a stabilizing grout material into the voids to fill them and support the foundation.

Foundation-Leveling-Toronto.jpg

Foundation Leveling

This process involves lifting and releveling the foundation using hydraulic jacks or a similar mechanism. The foundation is carefully raised to its original position, and support is added to prevent further settlement. Engineers may use this method in some cases.

Hellical Pier Installation

Helical piers are used to stabilize the foundation of your home. However, instead of being "pushed" into the ground like a push pier, they are screwed into the ground.

Poor drainage can contribute to foundation settlement. Correcting drainage issues around the property, such as installing proper gutters, downspouts, and grading the soil away from the foundation, can help prevent further foundation problems.

Push-Pier-Installation.webp

Push Pier Installation Services

Foundation-SlabJacking.jpg

Foundation Mudjacking Services

Mudjacking, also known as slabjacking, is often used to repair sinking concrete slabs. This process involves injecting a slurry mixture (typically a combination of sand, cement, and water) beneath the sunken slab. The mixture fills voids and raises the slab to its original position.
