What If I’m Not Sure I Have a Problem or Not?
In some cases an Anaheim homeowner just knows they have a structure problem.
In some cases, the evidence can be seen and quite obvious.
In other circumstances, the tell-tale signs are too difficult to notice.
But these difficulties can show up in all kinds of different houses, from low-cost to expensive houses and from old to newer ones.
Common Signs of a CA Foundation Situation?
• Cracking in an exterior or interior brick wall or its mortar
• New spaces around doors, principally exterior doors and garage doors
• Vertical cracks in sheet rock, usually between a door frame and the ceiling
• Uneven or sloping floors
• A large crack in a cement basement floor or foundation
• Doors or windows that stick to the frames when you attempt to open them
• Spaces where a wall and ceiling come together, or where a wall and floor meet
• Gaps or any separation between two exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• A damp crawlspace or collection of water near your home after a rain
• Water down in your basement
• Separated or cracked wood molding, generally door or crown molding
• Cracks in a solid surface exterior or interior wall
• The basement appears too damp and has that musty smell
• Floors have become uneven, sagging or weak, or floor tiles are loose.
Can My Issue Be Corrected?
A property owner may imagine that some foundation problems might be nearly impossible to correct, but, in fact, nearly all can be corrected by a professional in this field.
Nevertheless, these kind of house repairs do require trained structure repair contractors and teams, utilizing specific equipment, to alter and fix a settling property foundation, conduct a house leveling or carry out another critical structure issue.
Waterproofing a Basement or Crawlspace in Anaheim
If you’re sick and tired of coping with a wet basement, we have a technician that can learn what is allowing rain water to get into it.
In order to get your basement dry, sometimes we may have to work on the inside of your basement.
Sometimes we are able to get the work completed by working solely on the exterior.
We might manage to stop water from dripping into your house through correcting the grading of your yard, putting up gutters, investing in a french drain or other tactic.
We may not need to gain access to the basement walls at all.
Anaheim Area Slab Jacking Services
If part of your concrete front walk, patio or driveway is sunken down from where it first was, we can generally take care of that too.
The method we employ is named mudjacking (sometimes called slab jacking).
Slab jacking is a cool procedure.
This process consists of shooting a heavy mud-like compound beneath that patch of concrete which has sunk.
The thick solution expands and fills in all the holes below the concrete and then slowly but surely drives the slab up to the level it previously was at.
After your walkway, courtyard or porch slabs are all the same height again, they are going to look much better.
And no one will be stumbling on them either.
Why Is This Happening to My SoCal House?
The soil beneath your home and driveway slowly moves slightly.
It can shrink or swell somewhat due to water content and changes in temperature.
This movement will set stress on whatever building is on top of it.
Most properties can handle some of this activity, but too much movement, too frequently, could move even a new home.
Some homeowners get a problem in one of these areas; others will not.
One of the big things that cause home structure problems is how much moisture is around and under the house.
A home that is constructed on a professionally graded lot, where rain water is encouraged to roll away from the home, and a home that has a strong rain gutter system is in a better position to take care of these situations than a home which does not have decent lot grading or the right gutters.
The specific physical make up of the soil your home was built on is a top element as well.
Some types of clay soil can swell up more than others when they get exposed to moisture.
Even having a significant tree close to your home can cause troubles.
A big tree’s roots might develop underneath a house, develop pressure against the concrete and extract water from the dirt, drying it out too much during warm summer months.
As time goes by, a house may eventually form a little crack or two.
And a little crack might become a larger crack.
A serious split will allow in air and moisture and it just gets worse from there.
Can I Just Ignore It? Do I Have to Do Something Now?
When you have an issue with your house, you need to get it looked at and corrected.
The inspection, at least, is not something you should postpone.
You should not simply ignore the problem and hope that it goes away.
It won’t just go away.
Basement structure crack repair is a concern you should take care of soon.
Don’t forget, your foundation physically is holding up your complete house.
The roof, floors and walls count on it.
Unless you take care of it you may land in a serious position later.
In case you have water leaking in your basement, it might lead to troubles such as mildew and mold.
And these issues just get worse every year.
Some property owners wish to put needed repairs off because they think they will be moving in a little while.
But it’s not easy to sell any home that contains signals that might suggest a structural problem.
Buyers are fearful of being stuck with a big repair bill as soon as they move in.
If you’re going to sell your place, it’s good to divulge to the potential buyer any identified considerable problems with your house or you may get into trouble afterwards.
In certain situations, homeowners believe their situation is so awful that it will become a serious significant project and cost them a lot of money to do.
They sometimes turn out surprised that it might be solved quickly.
But a homeowner usually doesn’t be sure until they have it inspected.
