Structure foundations serve the purpose of slowing the effect of gravity and other forces on a structure built on soils. Over time, foundations can become out of level through soil settlement and/or heave. Foundations are engineered to move uniformly as a unit, not differently (differential movement). Differential movement is the #1 cause of “Foundation Failure”. There can be several causes for this movement, and sometimes the symptoms can be misleading. The best way to ascertain whether or not you have a problem is to give us a call (775-284-1964). We have residential foundation contractors that will inspect your property for FREE, determine the severity and possible remediation. There is no “one size fits all” solution to foundation repair, and if you don’t need a repair, we will tell you.
