Great Lakes Detects Early Signs of Foundation Settlement in Rochester, NY

Settlement Sinking Signs

Foundation settlement and sinking might be difficult to detect until you see early warning signs such as wall cracks, jammed doors, chimney issues or more. Great Lakes Waterproofing will inspect and assess your foundation for the following:

  • Stair-step cracks in brick: An obvious sign of foundation settling, and frequently occurs in brick and concrete block walls. As wall parts tilt away from each other, vertical fissures spread or become uneven and displaced. Cracks larger at the top than bottom are indicators.
  • Leaning or tilting chimneys: If your chimney is detaching from the house, this is a big sign. A chimney may be erected atop a footing unattached from the house foundation, further endangering it.
  • Sticking doors & windows; corner cracks: Settlement is frequently visible at door and window openings above settlement areas. Frames might not be square, and cracks appear above doors and windows, extending from the corners.
  • Drywall cracks: Typically occur at the corners of doors and windows, as well as along drywall seams, as a result of foundation settlement. Often more visible or larger on top floors. Drywall tape coming loose is tell-tale.
