The Cost Of Foundation Repair In Colorado

Foundation repair might seem expensive at first, but those prices are a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of ignoring your foundation issues. In any event, it pays to be knowledgeable. For this reason, let’s take a look at the average prices of common foundation repairs and compare them to what it would cost to replace components or ignore your problems:


Foundation repair, replace, or ignore?

Helical Piers$15,000Your House Becomes Worthless$150,000+
Wall Anchors / Power Braces$5,000$30,000+ For New Foundation Wall$25,000+

It’s important to realize that the longer you ignore foundation problems, THE MORE EXPENSIVE AND DEVASTATING THEY BECOME.

Foundation Cracks and Shifting can render your Colorado home unsafe, useless, and worthless.

Be that as it may, costs can still vary depending on the extent of repairs. Consequently, it is important to have a highly qualified company inspect your foundation. Like Liftech for example!

Trees and vegetation could cause foundation failure


The expansive root systems of large trees and plants can push against your foundation. In time they can even make their way under your foundation in search for moisture. This is often the cause of shifting and small, concentrated cracks. Root systems can also combine forces with other sources of failure. There, they can at times be the “root” cause of the problem.

Poor drainage can lead to costly foundation repairs


When not planned properly and graded correctly, the overall drainage in subdivisions and within individual lots can cause water to flow towards the structure, instead of away from it. Years of water intrusion around a structure can not only lead to potentially harmful moisture issues (e.g., mold), but also cause the foundation to shift and move.

Poor compaction can lead to expensive foundation repairs


Entire subdivisions and individual lots within them are often over-excavated in preparation for new homesites. This may also include the mixing of soils to equalize them and re-compacting them prior to structures being placed on top of them. When a foundation is not poured on stable soils and/or properly engineered to account for shifting soils, this can lead to lead to movement in the overlying structure.

Hydrostatic pressure can cause cracks in your walls and concrete


When gravity pushes down on large volumes of groundwater around your foundation, it increases hydrostatic pressure within the soil. This places lateral pressure on your foundation, which can cause it to shift and crack.

Soil shrinkage can damage a foundation colorado


Hot weather can sap soil of its moisture. So much like a kitchen sponge drying out on your counter, the soil will shrink and take up less space. Therefore when soil around your foundation dries out and shrinks, it leaves voids around your foundation. This can lead to sinking, settling, and shifting.

Heaving can damage your concrete, heaving is common in colorado


Expansive clays, including Bentonite, are found throughout Colorado’s Front Range. In areas with high concentrations of clay, the ground can swell. In time this can lift everything on top of it, foundations included. As soon as heaving can be identified contact a professional to find a solution.

Soil erosion can lead to foundation repairs in colorado


Heavy rain and snowmelt can eat away at the soft soils around and under your foundation. So over time, this can create voids. As a result these voids will cause your home to shift laterally or “settle” deeper into the ground.

Why do I need foundation repair? What causes a foundation to fail?

Expansive clay, loose or improperly compacted soils, and improper grade and maintenance around your home are a few potential causes of structural failure. In Colorado, up and down the Front Range contain high levels of bentonite. Given that, there is a high chance of movement in the structure and foundation failure. Older homes and homes that don’t have additional structural support (piers, footings, etc.) are often adversely impacted by high levels of expansion and contraction in the soils. Without a solid foundation, your home might be a ticking time bomb for larger, more expensive repairs if left unaddressed. So in reality the worst-case scenario is you can be left with an uninhabitable (and worthless) structure! Until you know your foundation is secure, make sure to keep an eye out for these signs of failure. Additionally, Liftech offers premier concrete leveling services, so if the repair is just sinking concrete, Liftech as you covered!

Signs Of Settlement In Your Home

Stair stepping in bricks

As a home shifts and the foundation moves. As a result you will often see the exterior brickwork or siding start to break, and cracks will develop in the mortar between the bricks. Often the cracks will “stair step” up the exterior of the house.

Bowing & leaning walls

A leaning and moving foundation means that the walls sitting on top of that foundation will move as well. Often you will see the exterior walls fall “away” from the house. When the foundation breaks and moves laterally, walls will often bow in or out depending on the movement in the underlying foundation.

Cracks in the foundation

Hairline cracks in a foundation are fairly common as even the best constructed homes move slightly over time. But larger horizontal or vertical cracks that are greater than 1/8 inch or have lateral separation between them are usually signs of significant movement in the foundation that should be repaired.

Leaning chimneys

Many times chimneys are either tied to the foundation or they are sitting on their own footing. In the long run if the foundation or footing under the chimney shifts, without proper support the overlying tall & narrow structure of the chimney will start to fall away from the house. As a result leaving a potentially hazardous situation at your home.

Sagging rooflines

Movement in the areas supporting the roof (interior/exterior walls, pillars, trusses, etc.) will transfer to the overlying roof. As a result you will often see sagging or crooked roofs develop. Therefore it is wise to keep an eye on that roofline.

Crooked garage frames

Garages usually sit on foundation walls or footings. So as settlement occurs in those areas, the overlying structure of the garage will twist and bend. As a result, leaving the frame of your garage crooked. Often you will notice this when your garage door doesn’t seal properly along it’s perimeter or won’t open or close properly without binding up in the tracks.

Interior Signs You May Need Foundation Repair

“Popping” Sounds

Does it sound like movie theater at night with popcorn popping in your kitchen? Are you convinced that you live in a haunted house with all of the creaking you hear while you are lying in bed? In fact, you probably don’t need to call Ghostbusters, but your home is indeed groaning from the uncomfortable movement it is experiencing. In any event, constant cracking and popping sounds that appear to worsen may indicate you have some more sinister problems going on other than ghosts!

Sagging & Uneven Floors

As the foundation that the floors sit on begins to move, the floors themselves start to sag and bend. Do you feel uneasy when you walk across your floors? Are there ridges under the carpet or areas where your tile or wood flooring have cracked or separated? Do the floors squeak and crackle excessively when you walk across them? These are all tell-tale signs of foundation movement in the home. Many times you will see the movement in the floors will “transfer” from the ground level to the upper floors.

Cracked & Bowed Walls

Similar to the exterior walls, interior walls will flex, bend and break as the structure begins moving. In short you will see large drywall cracks develop in the corners of rooms and around door and window frames. Drywall seams become visible as the large panels shift and move.

Drywall Cracking

Small hairline drywall cracks inside a home are to be expected, but if the cracks you are seeing are worsening, spreading and are generally more than 1/8 inch, the foundation is likely on the move. As a result of the home twisting and turning, the large rigid surfaces like drywall will ultimately bend and break. In light of this discovery, many homeowners patch these cracks but they almost always return!

Doors & Windows That Won’t Open / Close

Probably one of the most common signs of settlement is doors and windows, both interior and exterior, that won’t open, close or latch properly. Looking at the frames for the doors and windows, you will see they are out of alignment with uneven gaps along the top, bottom and/or sides when shut. Rubbing on the floors and around the frames is common and the homeowner often re-trims these areas instead of addressing the underlying problem (which will likely come back!).
