Foundation Settlement Problems in Omaha, Kansas City, Wichita & Nearby

We Fix Structural Damage Caused by Sinking, Settling Foundations

Foundation cracks, uneven floors, and sticking windows and doors are all signs that your home may have foundation settlement. Thrasher Foundation Repair often sees settling and sinking foundations when a contractor installs them incorrectly or lays the foundation on unstable soils. After years of a foundation settling, it can lead to:

  • Cracked walls & floors
  • Buckling or heaving floors
  • Sinking foundation walls
  • Water infiltration
  • Pest problems

Ultimately, it can create widespread structural damage, lowering the home's value and curb appeal and causing unsafe living conditions. Thrasher Foundation Repair fixes sinking and settling foundations with steel foundation piers. Our push piers and helical piers extend beneath the foundation, making contact with secure load-bearing soils to provide permanent stabilization for the home.

How to Identify Foundation Settlement

A sinking, settling foundation may be hard to spot at first. That is why so many homeowners can go months or even years before noticing a foundation crack, a tilting chimney, sticking windows and doors, or other signs of foundation settlement. If left unrepaired, foundation settlement can lead to severe structural damage.

Five signs your home may need sinking & settling foundation repairs:

Foundation slab cracks in Colorado

Slab Floor Cracks

Foundation cracks in the concrete floor slab could mean you have a settling foundation. But it can also indicate that just the slab has settled and not the entire foundation. To see which may be the case, schedule a foundation inspection with Thrasher Foundation Repair!

Drywall cracks due to sinking foundation in Missouri

Drywall Cracks

Drywall cracks throughout the home's interior are signs of foundation settlement, especially in upper levels of the house, in the corners of doors and windows, and along seams. Drywall tape can also indicate sinking and settling foundations, especially if it is ripping or coming loose.

Stair-Step Cracking

Stair-step cracking is a sign of foundation settlement for homes with brick and concrete walls. If vertical cracks widen or become uneven as the walls tilt away, it signifies severe movement. Cracks wider at the top are especially important to look out for, as it indicates advanced foundation settlement.

Tilting chimney in Iowa

Tilting Chimney

One of the most severe signs of a settling foundation is a tilting chimney separating from the home. While some contractors build the chimney on a footing not connected to the house foundation, the enormous weight of the structure causes even more of a risk of settlement.

Sticking windows due to sinking foundation in MO

Damaged, Sticking Windows & Doors

If you have noticed gaps around window or door openings, it can indicate house movement or foundation settlement. Doors and window frames may also be uneven, with cracks extending from the frame or exterior finish. Other signs of a settling, sinking foundation include jamming or sticking windows and doors as well as locks that stop working.

Push Piers

If soil conditions are unknown around your property, push piers offer a long-lasting solution for settling foundation repairs.

The heavy-duty steel brackets, installed next to footings, also bolster the system's durability and supporting strength.

  • Extends to greater depths than alternative options
  • Ideal solution for restoring your home to its original position

Helical Piers

Helical piers offer support to the foundation by transferring the weight of the foundation to the pier system. With helical plates welded to the pier shaft, it pulls the system into the soil during installation and provides anchoring strength.

Additional sections can also be added to the pier to reach the desired depth. This versatile system effectively stabilizes settling foundations and other masonry structures.

Advantages of helical piers

  • Quick, efficient installation
  • Can be installed year-round
  • Stabilizes light structures, including concrete stairs or decks
  • Can restore sinking foundations to their original level
