Thankfully, the team at Matvey Foundation Repair is here to help! No matter the current condition of your basement, we’ll take our time to create a custom plan to restore your home.

Signs of Basement Structural Issues

Your basement provides an up-close interior view of your home’s foundation, and is often the first place we look when inspecting for foundation problems. It’s easier to spot when walls, floors, corners, windows, and other structural components are out of alignment. We encourage you to examine your Seattle basement and look for any of the following:

  • Bowing or bulging walls
  • Tilting walls
  • Cracks along the walls, especially stair-step cracks (masonry foundations) or horizontal and corner cracks (poured foundations)
  • Heaving or bulging in concrete floors
  • Cracks in the floors
  • Gaps around windows
  • Sticking doors and windows
  • Condensation on inside of windows
  • Mold growth
  • Musty odors
  • Squishy drywall
  • Damp carpets or flooring

Often, when there is structural damage to a basement, we’ll see water-related issues, too. But even if you notice many of these things, don’t worry. Matvey Foundation Repair is one of the most trusted names for basement structural repair in Seattle, and we’ll take great care of your home.
