sheetrock and mortar problems for homes in denver coFoundation issues are inevitable, therefore they can occur in any structure. However they are more common in aging homes due to wear and tear which can lead to foundation settlement. Since settling foundations get worse over time, it's best to have a professional thoroughly inspect your home. The experts at Rapid Foundation Repair has the skills to restore your foundation back to normal in the Denver, Co area.

There are a few warning signs that indicate foundation failure. One of these signs includes cracks in the sheetrock. Fractures form around doors and windows due to stress against the foundation walls. As the pressure increases, the doors and windows may stick making it difficult to open and close. In addition, cracks may form in the mortar between bricks. Mortar cracks can appear in several forms such as horizontal, matching vertical or stair-stepped cracks. Stair-stepped and horizontal cracks are signs of settlement, whereas matching vertical cracks are caused by soil expansion.

In addition to sheetrock and mortar cracks, look for other signs of settlement, such as:

  • Crumbling, chipping, or flaking foundations
  • Ceiling cracks
  • Floor cracks
  • Wall cracks
  • Bowing and leaning walls
  • Shifting or moving foundation
  • Sinking garage
  • Leaning or tilting chimney
  • Shifting or uneven floors
  • Gaps and spaces in floor, wall and ceiling

Sheetrock and Mortar Solutions in Colorado

Regardless of the type of sheetrock and mortar problems you have, Rapid Foundation Repair has the solution. We offer an array of cost-effective foundation repair methods to restore and stabilize your foundation. Our repair methods include:

  • Steel Piers: Steel push piers are used to lift and stabilize weak foundations caused by soil-related conditions beneath the home. Piers are pushed deep into the ground, then the weight of the structure is transferred onto the piers. After the foundation is lifted to the desired level, the cracks in the sheetrock and mortar are sealed and filled in.
  • Helical Piers: Helical pier installation is very similar to steel push piers except the piers are screwed into the ground. Typically, these piers can be used for lighter weight structures such as stoops and porches.
