When a foundation failure is extreme a full or partial rebuild of walls and footings may be the only solution. Caused by foundation settlement, building on expansive clay, improperly compacted fill, plumbing leaks, transpiration caused by tree roots, or soil shrinkage due to severe and extremes in weather conditions, and inferior construction are just a few. Some visible symptoms that you may see due to foundation failure include cracks, bowing or leaning in exterior brick or interior finished walls, cracks in mortar, sloping floors (basement or garage for example), gaps or alignment issues in windows and doors or water leaks.
Quick action by you to address the issues will ensure that the problems don't worsen. Replacing a wall is a last resort, if the issues are addressed quickly different techniques will be used to straighten and re-enforce the wall. The longer you wait the worst it can get. Not only can the costs increase exponentially, inaction can lead to an unsafe structure.
The foundation will be fully assessed by a 3rd party independent structural engineer. A report and plans will be produced and reviewed with the home owner, ensuring that only the required work is completed. In the end the solution will be implemented, putting you back on a stable foundation.
