As older homes settle, shift and breath throughout their life, the individual foundation supports can move at slightly different rates. Extreme moisture variations in the soils can also cause the supports to heave or settle. Shifting soils can result in minor problems or result in a complete failure of the entire support mechanism. These changes can cause drywall cracking, sinking or heaving floors, cracked floor tiles cracked fireplace hearths and more.
Straight Line Construction has a variety of ways to repair out of date or failing supports. Some circumstances are easily corrected by installing simple posts and other problems may require a new support beam and base.
