Signs of Foundation Failure in Brick Chapel Hill Building

Would you recognize the signs of foundation failure? Do the cracks in this Chapel Hill building look like signs of foundation failure to you?

Brackett Foundation Repairs has been dedicated to foundation repairs for almost twenty years now. It’s our business to find the story in the cracks – to piece together what the cracks in a building or home are telling us about where support has failed and what support is needed.

This Chapel Hill building has a lot of cracks. Outside cracks. Inside cracks. We have to piece together the whole picture.

Keep an eye out for cracks. They always have a story to tell. Sometimes it’s a quiet story, about a little settling, nothing to worry about. Other times it’s sign that there’s just not enough support under the foundation. Have a question? Call Brackett. (919) 806-5232.
