Sagging of the structure is not just so

What causes foundations to sink?
Foundations settle for a number of reasons. All of them are related to changes in the properties of the soil base, which in turn causes movement of the soil on which the foundations are built.
Changes can be caused by:- Droughts or frosts that dry the ground and cause clay soils to shrink. In dry conditions, tree roots can suck residual moisture out of the ground and cause further settlement.- Major repairs or construction in the vicinity can change the condition of the soil, especially if excavation or piling work is carried out. Often, poorly executed excavations can allow “adjacent” soils to slide away, causing the supports to sink. Heavy traffic and machine vibrations can also move or displace soil layers.- Different foundation systems (e.g. in very old buildings or in houses with extensions or alterations) perform differently. Additions or extensions to a house will settle differently compared to the main structure. Most often, new foundations will settle in the first five years after construction.- Water that soaks into the ground changes the condition of the soil. This can be the result of leaks from broken pipes, poorly compacted foundation backfill or a sloping foundation (causing water to pool). In sandy soils, smaller particles are removed and larger particles settle. In clay soils, moisture saturation leads to weakening of the soil and the foundation sinks in the weak area.
Is there a solution?

What does a foundation problem look like?

If you notice large cracks in the walls and foundation of your home or gaps appearing between the baseboard and floor, there is a good chance that the building and the soils beneath it are sinking. Working in tandem with a qualified structural engineer to understand the causes of settling (the technical term for uneven settling of a home) is usually the first step to addressing and fixing the problem. Settlement can occur in specific areas (large or small) over a long period of time or as a direct response to nearby human activity or natural events.

If you have reached this block, then you care about the future of your property. We fully support you and offer to take the first step towards preserving your peace of mind and the object that is prone to destruction. In order to avoid the risks of making a hasty or ill-calculated decision, the logical step would be to conduct the minimum necessary inspection of your building for reasonable money. Then, based on the data on the actual current scale of the problem, make a decision in which of the three directions to move:
  • 01 Continue to monitor the dynamics of destruction with the help of professional tools, defining the "point of no return"
  • 02 Develop a draft solution taking into account constructive, financial and "life" constraints and implement it
  • 03 Apply for an alternative solution based on the conducted survey to third parties

UNEVEN SETTLEMENT OF STRUCTURES CAN BE CAUSED BY THE FOLLOWING FACTORS:

  • The foundation is not tamped down.
  • Additional new loads on structures
  • Technogenic breakdowns and accidents of engineering communications
  • Regular fluctuations of moisture and temperature in soils
  • Excavation or piling works nearby
  • Structural differences of foundations within one building
  • Biological processes in the base soils
  • Regular exposure to vibrations
  • Diverse base under one building

QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED BY GEORESIN:

  • What happens to the building or structure in general?
  • What caused the cracks or elimination of structures?
  • Does it make sense to expect improvements or changes and what are they?
  • Is it possible to do with cosmetic repairs and for how long?
  • What will happen if nothing is done and in what time frame?
  • Will it help and what specific "store-bought or DIY" solutions will help?
  • Will the "familiar foreman" be able to solve the issue?
  • Is it possible and how to slow down or stop the process of destruction?
  • Is it possible to return everything as it was? What are the options?
  • When is it better and cheaper to start solving? Is it possible not to start right away?
  • How much does it cost to solve the issue and what are the conditions of implementation?
  • What can be done for X UAH?
