Common Foundation Problems in Katy 01

Below are partial images of emails from Katy homeowners that illustrate the most Common Foundation Problems in Katy. We have added our comments where we thought it might be beneficial. The point we wish to make is that many homeowners in your area are experiencing foundation issues.


Seeing new cracks is a common complaint from homeowners.  It is always best to address foundation issues early rather than later because they never get better on their own.


Sticking doors is an early warning sign of foundation movement. It would be a good idea to call us for a FREE foundation inspection.


Those loud popping noises are the result of the soil moving your foundation and producing cracks. The noise could also come from the stresses placed on other parts of the house, such as the rafters and joists in the attic.


We would recommend that this homeowner call his insurance company first.  If any house or foundation damage is covered by the insurance then it is best to follow their lead.


Unfortunately this homeowner’s siding is being damaged – a sure warning sign of foundation damage and movement.


Wall Cracks will widen as they move or rotate to the upper roof.

Two story houses often have large cracks in the second story (rotational movement) when foundation movement is present. A small crack at the foundation level will work up to the second story and appear as a very large crack.


It is very satisfying to receive referrals from industry professionals.  They recognize our hard work, customer service, and our dedication to offering the Highest Quality Foundation Repair in Texas – Bell Bottom Piers.
