Foundation Repair:

Signs of Foundation Problems

Have you noticed a crack or two in your basement walls? Are windows or doors sticking? These could be signs of a foundation that needs repair. You wouldn’t ignore a hole in your roof, so why would you ignore a crack in your foundation? Water can get through either, and if enough water collects around your foundation or in your basement, you could be facing repair jobs in the tens of thousands of dollars. SafeBasements™ of Minneapolis-St. Paul offers expertise in inspecting, diagnosing, and repairing the signs of foundation problems and damage in Minneapolis-St. Paul, so you can avoid headaches and higher expenses later.

Your foundation is the most important part of your home, so don’t overlook the signs that it needs attention. Here are some potential signs of foundation problems in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area:


  • Large cracks in basement walls (interior or exterior)
  • Standing water collecting in basement
  • Unsealed crawl space
  • Windows or doors sticking on upper levels
  • Insect pests
  • Musty odors
  • Bowing basement walls



Keep in mind that some of these signs may be more noticeable during certain times of the year, such as after a rapid spring snowmelt or heavy summer rains. If you notice any of these signs in your home, call the SafeBasements team in Minneapolis-St. Paul today and get your foundation inspected. We’ll let you know whether the current damage needs to be addressed immediately and what you might expect down the line.

Analysis of water in basement in Eden Prairie, MN

We had water in our basement and Derek came out to look at it. After reviewing he determined the water was coming from our water softner and used the bypass mode to prevent additional water from getting into our basement. He advised that I needed a plumber. He was honest and forthright and helped me even though it did not bring any service to SafeBasements. He would not accept any type of payment. I will definitely use this truthful company if I need their services for anything in the future.
