All foundations will inevitably experience some movement. Problems may develop when soil conditions beneath a foundation cause it to sink or settle unevenly. Foundation settlement can lead to a variety of issues, such as cracks in walls and floors, doors and windows that stick or do not close properly, and uneven floors. If left unaddressed, foundation problems can worsen over time and become more expensive to repair, which is why it is important to get in touch with a professional as soon as you notice warning signs.

Early detection of foundation problems is crucial to prevent them from worsening over time and becoming more costly to repair. You should be aware of the common red flags that may signal an issue that requires professional attention.
Reach out to our Mt. Juliet foundation repair professionals right away if you notice any of the following warning signs:
- Cracks in your walls, floors, or ceiling. As a foundation settles or shifts, it can cause stress on the walls and floors above it, leading to cracks. These cracks may appear as hairline fissures at first but can widen over time if nothing is done. Horizontal cracks in basement walls, stair-step cracks around exterior corners, and vertical cracks that run up and down walls can all also indicate serious foundation issues that require immediate action.
- Doors and windows that stick or do not close properly. The frame of a house or building can become misaligned as its foundation shifts or settles, making it more challenging than it should be to open and close doors and windows.
- Uneven or sloping floors. When a foundation shifts, it may no longer provide even support to the structure above it, creating floors that may be uneven or sloping in certain areas.
- Leaning chimney. Foundation settlement can in some cases be so significant that a home’s chimney can start to separate from the rest of the structure, resulting in dangerous leaning that may eventually result in collapse if left ignored.
Foundation Repair Methods
At USS, we leverage a wide range of dependable, cutting-edge tools and techniques to repair foundation issues of all kinds. Each method has advantages and disadvantages, and we always tailor our approach to your unique situation. After inspecting your property and getting a complete understanding of the problem, we will explain why we are recommending a particular approach and review what our proposed solution will entail.
Foundation repair methods we may consider include:
- Installing resistance piers or helical piers. Resistance piers are typically made of steel, driven deep into the ground beneath the foundation until they reach stable soil, and then attached to the foundation using brackets. Helical piers, on the other hand, are screw-like devices that are drilled into the ground. Both methods work by transferring the weight of the foundation onto the piers, which helps lift and level the structure. This approach is often preferred when dealing with foundations that have settled due to poor soil conditions or changes in moisture levels.
- Adding steel braces or carbon fiber to reinforce foundation walls. Our solution typically involves installing steel beams or carbon fiber straps against the foundation wall to provide additional support and stability. The braces or beams are secured to the foundation walls and anchored top and bottom, creating a strong and durable framework that can withstand the weight of the structure above and the exterior pressure from the outside soil. Adding steel beams or carbon fiber straps, especially carbon-Kevlar straps known as InvisiBeam®, is an effective way to ensure the long-term stability of a building's foundation.
- Injecting epoxy or polyurethane foam into cracks in the foundation. Injecting epoxy or polyurethane foam into cracks in a damaged foundation is a common method for repairing minor to moderate structural damage. This approach involves injecting the epoxy or foam directly into the crack, filling any voids beneath the foundation to prevent further soil movement. The material then hardens, reinforcing the structure and providing additional support. This technique is often used when dealing with smaller cracks or as a preventative measure to stop minor issues from becoming major problems.
- Installing drainage systems to address water issues that may be damaging the foundation. Water can cause significant damage to a foundation by eroding the soil around it or causing hydrostatic pressure against the walls, leading to cracks and instability. Drainage systems work by redirecting water away from the foundation, either through footer or above footer drains that re-route water to a sump pump or gravity drain and away from the home.
