As you look at the interior and exterior of the foundation and building, check for some of the following symptoms of a foundation problem:
These are telltale signs that you are dealing with a foundation problem. This kind of structural problem is usually caused by the sinking or shifting of the foundation. This can happen for a variety of reasons. One reason foundation begin to settle is the formation of voids under the concrete. This is often the result of soil shrinkage during dry, drought-like periods or erosion after heavy rainfall or snow melt. Settling foundations can also result from poor soil compaction under the foundation at the time that the structure was built and the foundation was laid.
If the foundation of your commercial building is shifting, it could be due to excess hydrostatic pressure in the soil.
Hydrostatic pressure increases and pushes on the foundation as the ground absorbs more water and the soil expands. This pressure can cause the foundation to shift and crack, leading to bowing or leaning walls and water entry in the basement.
