Before you give us a call, let our expert team of StayDry heroes fill you in on the causes of many foundation problems and how we can help repair them.
Causes of Common Foundation Problems
One of the most common causes of foundation issues is settlement. While every home can expect to experience some degree of settlement, extensive settlement can greatly damage your home’s foundation.
The type of soil your Kalamazoo home was built on has a great impact on the degree of settlement you can expect. Soils that absorb a lot of moisture, like clay, will expand and contract with various temperature changes. This puts added stress on your home’s foundation and can cause cracks to form or the walls to bow inward.
While hairline cracks are nothing to be concerned about, if they grow, you home could be at risk for serious damage. Additionally, if your home experiences bowing, you will need foundation repair immediately to prevent the home from collapsing.

Common Michigan Foundation Problems
With the extreme weather and temperatures that Kalamazoo faces, this can take a toll on your home. While you may not see or feel any major difference in your home based on foundational issues, if left unrepaired it could have negative consequence on your home.
Some of the most common issues Michigan homes face include:
- Foundation cracks
- Mold in basement
- Floor separating
- Home settling
- Sunken concrete slabs
As a homeowner, it is important that these issues be repaired immediately as often they can lead to larger issues. Many Michigan homes are built beneath the natural water table, which causes water to flow downwards to the lowest point of an area. If your home is that lowest point, then you may continually see water damage related issues occur to your home and foundation.
Don’t wait any longer to receive contracting help for your home. Put your pocketbook and mind at ease and call StayDry® Waterproofing today.
Foundation Repair Issues Fixed: Sunken Concrete Slabs
One of the main culprits of sunken concrete slabs is soil, that your home sits. If your soil is poorly excavated or is not leveled properly to direct away from your home, it can instead direct water to your foundation and into your home.
Additionally, slab settlement or sunken concrete slabs occur when the soil below cannot support the weight anymore. Even if you haven’t gone through a wet season, dry, dense soil can be just as dangerous. When this soil gets wet quickly it will absorb quickly and expand, causing the concrete to be moved once again and posing a threat to your home.
When you work with StayDry® Waterproofing you are investing in the best. We fix the root of the problem and make sure the job is done right. We will fix any foundational soil issues, repair concrete with crack injections and insulate your lowest points of your home against water damage. Our goal is to give you high-quality service, with peace of mind that the job is done right.

As mentioned previously, while some settlement is natural for your Kalamazoo home, excessive settling can be quite problematic. Settling can cause both cracks in your foundation and the foundation walls to bow inward. While cracks can be minor initially, they could quickly progress into more serious issues. Bowing walls can be even more concerning than foundation cracks, though, as they directly affect the structure of your home. In short, bowing walls and foundation cracks can put you and your home at risk. To prevent these issues, you’ll want to monitor your foundation often and give StayDry a call should you find any issues.
