In most cases lateral movement in a foundation occurs from soil pressure, hydrostatic pressure, poor construction, or a combination of those. In Colorado these issues are more common because of the expansive clay soils throughout large portions of the state. These issues often cause diagonal and horizontal cracks in the foundation walls from bowing or tipping. This movement often causes leaking of the foundation and sloping floors.
Even more so than vertical movement, ignored lateral movement can cause structures to become compromised and unsafe. HomeStrong offers permanent solutions to these issues. Schedule a free inspection to have one of our knowledgeable representatives analyze these issues and give recommendations.
