How to Know If Your Foundation Needs Help

A lot of homeowners in San Antonio and Austin, TX wonder how they can know if their foundation needs fixing if it’s underneath their house. Problems can indeed go unnoticed for too long, and then they become bigger issues. However, there are some things you can do to look for signs of foundation damage. Foundation damage usually occurs because of shifting in the soil underneath or around the house. When the earth moves, the concrete is strained and can crack. Large swings in temperature can also cause soil and concrete to expand and shrink, which could harm the foundation. Look for the following signs around your house. They can be early warning signs of more serious foundation damage.

  • Cracks or shifts in exterior brickwork.
  • Cracked Sheetrock or drywall inside the house.
  • Cracks or shifts in concrete sidewalks or driveways around the house.
  • Strange water leaks in the basement or ground floor.
  • Signs that a large tree’s roots are growing underneath your house.

Any of these should be cause for concern. Contact professional help at 210-267-8828 for an assessment to see if home foundation repair in San Antonio and Austin, TX is necessary.

We had to go 35 feet to get past the active area of soil, but we reached the depth necessary so Wendy has a permanent fix on her slab foundation. Wendy can enjoy the confidence of American Made Stability, for Life!

We love taking care of our Armed Forces, it was an honor to take care of Sgt Major. We took great care to not disturb his bushes too much and avoided making a muddy mess during the recent rain. Another great job by FSS!

FSS installed 10 of our galvanized steel piers for Sarah on her slab on grade home. We had to remove and then replant several bushes to get the job done, but it is always worth the extra efforts to have a happy customer.

Today our team finished installing 14 steel piers. Digging around the electric service line was a challenge. The area needing the most lift also was the area with the incoming water line and sewer line. We successfully maximized the lift without breaking the water or sewer lines.

A quick and simple project installing 6 galvanized steel piers to lift a settling addition. We were thrilled to be able to flatten out the concrete slab and make Adam and April another happy FSS customer.

Proud to complete another job for our military service members on Ft Sam. Installed 12 galvanized piers to lift and stabilize the slab foundation. We were extremely careful to take excellent care of the beautiful flower bed along the front of the house. Thank you to all our men and women in uniform!

The FSS team finished installing and lifting Mercedes’ concrete slab with 16 all steel piers.  It turns out that a plumbing leak was the cause of her foundation settling.  We worked with her through the process of filing an insurance claim for her plumbing problem.  Our pre test on the plumbing system has helped another homeowner take advantage of the benefits of their insurance.  Now that her plumbing is fixed and the foundation has been set to rights, Mercedes can get back to life as usual and not have to worry or stress about her home.  It was a pleasure working with Mercedes.

I'm so sorry i sent it to the wrong number Today we finished installing 14 steel piers to stabilize Mr. Mijares' home preventing it from sinking further. We also injected Poly Pro X in his driveway and walkways to even out the concrete and fill damaging voids. Luckily, we only had to do minor trimming to plants around the house to complete the job. Thank you for letting FSS come out and repair your home's foundation!

FSS has started a special project in Abilene this week.  We are installing 67 steel piers to lift and stabilize this failing slab foundation.  The homeowner has been through a terrible ordeal with their foundation and all the stress that accompanies a severe failure of the most important aspect of the home.  FSS was selected to make the foundation repairs and as a consequence provide the much needed stress relief.  We are proud to be a part of this project and look forward to its successful conclusion.

It was a pleasure working with Mr. Cantu to help stabilize the addition to his house. We installed 16 galvanized steel piers, placing them for optimal support, preventing any more foundation damage. We took care to reassemble his stone landscaping when we were done with the repairs. Mr. Cantu praised the crew for being neat and professional. Thank you and we are happy to help!

Finishing up a project out in Beorne today for Mr. Duncan. There was a crack in his concrete flooring extending from the front of the house to the back. This was a result of the settlement on both sides of his house. Using 30 steel piers, we successfully lifted the house and evened out his flooring. We also took care to protect his landscaping with plastic coverings and replanted every plant we could. Always proud to go the extra mile for our customers!
Andrew David
Happy to say this project for Mr. Bradley and his family went smoothly with minimal disruption to their lives! The front of his house was settling into one corner. To stabalize his house, we installed 9 steel piers to prevent more settlement and damage. A small palm tree had to be removed to install the piers, but the owners are looking forward to updating their landscaping. This a great example of why repairing foundation damage earlier is better than waiting and letting it get worse. Thank you for trusting FSS to do the job!

Even with the rainy weather at the end of this week, our crew was able to finish up a project for Ms. Kirby! The right side of her house was becoming unleveled with the left side of her house that had previous foundation repair done. We installed 22 steel piers along the outside of her house and one in her bedroom closer to stabilize the foundation. She's an avid gardener, so we did our best to work around her landscaping and replant as much as we could. Thank you for trusting FSS with your home repairs!

Our second for today was for the Niles family home. One corner of the front of his house was sinking 4 inches. This settlement caused cracking in his foundation that extended the width of his home and was visible from outside. To stabalize the house we installed 18 piers along the perimeter focusing on the front of the house. The crew successfully lifted the house, while maintaining the landscaping and without disruption to the sprinkler and plumbing systems. Great job as always to the crew! Next week we'll finsih by lifting the sunken driveway to match the home's new stabalized elevation.
Andrew David
For this project we're finishing up today we installed 12 steel piers to stabalize the back of a settling house. One of the damaging side effects of foundation settlement is cracks in walls, but this house had crack and separating sheet rock in the ceiling extending the width of the customer's house. Not only was the lift and stabilization a success, we were able to close the cracked ceiling. We'll also be injected Poly Pro X under the back patio to fill the voids and be be flush with the new elevations. Thank you for choosing FSS!

Rosalind was having some significant issues with the back and sides of her home settling.  We had to dismantle and rebuild her deck to install some of our piers.  We also took care to work around some the plants around the home.  The installation of the 19 steel piers on her concrete foundation provided the lift we needed to flatten out her slab and keep it stabilized for the future.

The crew is completing a tough project today after installing 24 steel piers and digging 2 tunnels under the house for four of the installs. Tunneling certainly posed a challenge, but it prevented further interior damage to the customer's tile flooring. We also had to repalce sections of the foundation's rebar and power washed their driveway. The lift and stabilization for this was successful for the Ratcliffe family. Thank you for choosing FSS!

Today we finished up a project for the Nabors family. The front of their house was continuing to settle despite previous foundation repair by another company. We installed 11 steel piers and successfully lifted and stabilized their home. The crew worked around the old piers and landscaping to optimally place the new piers. They also replanted some flowers and bushes and replaced mulch and light fixtures. Thank you for trusting FSS with your home repairs.

We're completing a project today for Ms. Ely! We installed 12 steel piers to lift and stabalize her house. It was settling along the majority of the perimeter of her home. We happily removed and replanted some of the bushes as well as repairing some of the sprinklers that broke during the lift. Proud to serve another FSS customer and help give them a stable foundation!

What a great way for the crew to finish up the week. We finished installing 10 steel piers to stabalize the front of the Colby's house. It was sinking a couple of inches from the back half of the house. It was showing cracks along the garage floor that extended to the other end of the house. We only lost one of his plants while replanting his landscaping. It was a timely and seamless project, so job well done to the crew. Thanks for choosing FSS!
