Common Causes of Foundation Problems in Norfolk

A home in Norfolk might experience foundation issues for multiple reasons. Some are unique to the local environment, while others are common nationwide. They include:

  • Standing water: Pooling water around your home can harm your foundation's integrity, especially when it collects in areas your gutter system doesn't reach.
  • Soil composition: Soil with large sand or clay concentrations is highly expansive. In the heavy rainfall Norfolk receives, the soil soaks up moisture like a sponge, then releases it in dry seasons. The constant expansion and contraction puts pressure on nearby foundations, even if the foundations keep dry.
  • Aging plumbing: Norfolk has its fair share of older homes, with a median building year of 1964. Many of these properties use cast-iron plumbing. When the pipes start to erode, leakage could reach your foundation and even pool beneath it.
  • Tree Roots: Tree roots can enter a home's foundation through cracks, and may exert pressure that causes your foundation cracking, pipes leaking, and overall structural deterioration.

How to Choose the Best Foundation Repair Company

Your home's foundation is crucial to its stability, so it's important to work with a top-notch foundation repair company. Assess each contractor using the following criteria:

Licensing and Experience

The Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation issues licenses to foundation repair companies. The license a company has determines what work it can do and what size projects it can handle. Talk to team members to gain more insight into a company's experience. You should ask about local permit ordinances, building codes and inspection processes. One of the easiest ways to evaluate a company's reputation is to explore its website. Look for the company's history and the qualifications its team holds. Many well-known companies publish educational content for prospective customers.

Customer Reviews

When you're researching a company's reputation, visit its Better Business Bureau (BBB) profile. There, you can find its "letter grade" rating and a list of customer reviews, both complaints and positive experiences. Complaints don't mean a contractor is bad news. BBB reviews show how the company dealt with complaints. It's a positive sign if the company has resolved issues favorably and proactively. You should avoid a company with numerous negative reviews, no accreditation, and no communication regarding issues.

Foundation Repair Cost in Norfolk

The price of your foundation repair project can range widely based on the scale of the issues and what must be fixed. For minor foundation cracking and settling concerns, you may pay as little as $1,700. However, if there is significant damage, the average cost is about $2,000. More complex projects requiring tunneling, helical piers, or major mudjacking could cost $6,600+.

Below are the average foundation repair costs for common issues.

Common Foundation Repair ServicesAverage Cost
Crack Repair$256
Leak Repair$1,909
Stabilization$3,197
Underpinning$989
Waterproofing$2,093
