When Do You Need Foundation Repair?
Foundations don’t usually sink without there being some apparent signs that it’s happening. You may notice cracks in your basement walls (typically in a stair-step pattern.) Or, you may also see cracks in your exterior walls, even going up several floors depending on the size of the building. These are most readily apparent on brick-faced structures. Other signs are doors that won’t close or cracks in plaster walls. Or even roofs that look like they’ve sagged. All of these could be signs that you’ve got something going on with your foundation that should be addressed before it gets much worse.
Bowed Basement Walls
You can also experience, what we call, bowed walls in a basement. This is where a wall is pushed in by pressure in the ground outside. Sometimes it can be just a small amount. Sometimes it can be several inches and look like the wall is going to cave in. Like other kinds of foundation issues, this one should be addressed as soon as possible, otherwise, the wall could come crashing down, possibly taking a portion of your home with it.

Mr. Gray was referred to me by my real estate agent. Turned out to be a fantastic referral. I know what Im looking at with most things house construction related but when it came to a 227 year old stone foundation and walls, I needed help as I was far out of my lane. Andrew was fantastic. It was clear he truly loves his work and cared about my house. He took his time to really inspect and study everything that I had going on. Bottom line, I would not hesitate to use him for any project where I needed his expertise. You can tell that fundamentally he is just "good people" so you are in great hands with him.
