Structural & Foundation Repair in Fredericton
Foundation problems can develop for several reasons, and often announce their presence by showing any number of telltale signs. But while some of the signs of foundation failure are obvious, such as cracks in your basement's walls or floor, there are other symptoms that you might not realize are caused by foundation problems. If you notice any of these symptoms in your home, it’s best to have your foundation inspected by a Fredericton foundation repair professional as soon as possible.
Foundation Problem Signs:
- Cracked Brick/Stucco - Stair-step cracks in exterior foundation walls.
- Bowing Walls - Concrete wall leaning in at the top.
- Shearing Walls - Inward movement of the bottom of the block wall.
- Ceiling Gaps - Space between the ceiling and the interior wall.
- Sagging Floors - Sloping floors or gaps between the floor and the interior wall.
- Chimney Separation - Chimney separating from the house.
What Causes Foundation Issues in Fredericton, NB
Foundation problems can be caused by a variety of environmental factors, many of which are related to precipitation, soil type and density, and temperature fluctuations. In Fredericton and New Brunswick as a whole, rain and snow are as common as the rising sun – annual rainfall in Fredericton totals over 120 centimeters while snow falls at a rate of roughly 252 centimeters each winter. With all that precipitation and the frigid winter temperatures, the spring thaw can present a great deal of pressure for your home’s foundation.
When soils moisten, freeze, and then thaw, the movement of water in the soil surrounding your home’s foundation can cause hydrostatic pressure (the weight of water on top of itself). The “fill-in” soil (the dirt that was excavated when initially digging out your foundation) is often of a different density than the soil that surrounds it, allowing for different drainage rates around your foundation. If the soil around the fill-in doesn’t drain as well, and the fill-in becomes saturated during the thaw, the weight of water contained in the fill-in will put significant pressure on your basement’s foundation and footings, leading to structural decay over time.
Concrete Repair in Fredericton
Concrete is prone to cracking and sinking. Soil conditions, including load-bearing capacity and overall density, can lead to deterioration over time. In areas with porous soil and significant annual rainfall, sinking, settling, cracking, and other noticeable issues may arise. Given Fredericton’s proximity to the St. John River, and an annual rainfall of more than 120 centimeters, such issues are an inconvenient truth that many homeowners will eventually face.
When your concrete needs repairs, it's best to call the experts. The good news is most concrete can be leveled and repaired without having to replace it. We offer a proven Concrete Protection System to help Fredericton homeowners quickly restore the concrete around their home, regardless of its state of disrepair.
