Foundations need to be strong to not only hold up the weight of the structure and its contents, but to hold up under the threats of high winds with hurricane possibilities. If you have noticed cracks in the foundation of your Jacksonville, FL house or business it's time to call upon the experts at Foundation Professionals of Florida to return your home to a structurally sound state.
Foundation issues can threaten your home by causing major damage that reduces the value of your home and makes it unstable. Some soils are not capable of supporting the weight or pressure caused by your home or business' foundation. Foundation failure results from poor soil compaction, overloading, inadequate waterproofing, erosion/expanding soil, and excessive organic materials. Excess moisture saturates foundation soil leading to weakening of clay soils. In a drought situation, the soil beneath the foundation will crack. Then when the soil does get moisture, the water will go into these cracks and cause expansion, increasing the voids. Some signs of foundation failure include:
- Cracks in walls on the inside of the house
- Windows and doors that stick
- Windows on the outside have cracks that run diagonally
- Cracks in the concrete at the base of the house
- Standing water around the house
These serious conditions could put a lot of stress to your home's foundation. Underpinning your home with our team of professionals can increase the integrity of your home. All of the underpinning products we use are manufactured by Earth Contact Product (ECP), the leading manufacturer of foundation repair products in the industry.
Additional Services in Jacksonville, FL
Sinkholes are an issue around Jacksonville, Florida due to the excess of limestone, which erodes easily, in the soil. In heavy rains, the soil may become saturated. The water saturating the soils may then erode the limestone, opening cavities and voids beneath the surface of the ground. Eventually, these cavities will collapse to become sinkholes.
If there is a sinkhole close to your home, it could cause crack formation and settlement in your foundation. Fortunately, the team at Foundation Professionals of Florida can fix sinkholes in your yard with expert compaction grouting services.

After we contacted the company, we were surprised to get a call back and an inspection with estimate so quickly. The work was also scheduled and completed quickly and in a very professional manner.
