Just as your home can suffer from foundation problems, your garage can also suffer. It is not uncommon for homeowners to require foundation repair services for their garage instead of their home. Because they are normally built on concrete slab foundations, garages are prone to foundation settlement and foundation cracks. If you have an attached garage, this could mean that foundation problems in the garage could affect your home as well.
As is the case with foundation failure in any structure, there are several telltale signs that your garage is in need of professional foundation repair. Some of these signs are blatantly obvious, while others are much more subtle. The most common signs include:
The cause of garage foundation problems is usually the shifting or varying moisture content of the soil beneath the foundation. This can happen when there is an especially large amount of rain, causing the soil to absorb more water and expand, pushing on the foundation. Excessive water can also lead to erosion, washing away soil and forming voids beneath the foundation. Although too much water is often the cause, drought-like conditions can also cause voids to form.
