I’m Not Sure I Have a Real Problem
Every now and then a Northern California homeowner has no problem noticing their house has a structure predicament. In some instances, the evidence is just so conspicuous.
In other scenarios, the homeowner doesn’t have any idea they have any problem. The warning signs are too subtle.
And newer houses aren’t immune from these problems either. They can appear no matter what type of home construction you have or however old your house is.
Stuff to Watch For:
• You notice irregular or sloping interior floors
• There are spaces around doors, typically an outside door and garage door
• Some windows or doors stick to their frames when you attempt to open or shut them
• There are splits in external or interior brick walls or mortar
• There is a vertical split in sheet rock, commonly between a door frame and the ceiling
• There is rain water in your basement
• You observe separating or cracked interior molding, ordinarily crown or door molding
• You think a floor is sagging, warping or sloping, or floor tiles have become loose or broke.
• There’s a separation between a couple of exterior walls or one wall and the chimney
• You spy a crack in a solid surface interior or exterior wall
• You have a damp crawlspace or water sitting by your house following a rain
• You come across big cracks in your concrete basement floor or concrete blocks
• There are spaces between a wall and ceiling or a wall and the floor
• Your basement feels damp, humid and has that musty smell
Aren’t These Problems Hard to Fix?
Homeowners sometimes feel their house issue is likely to be hard to take care of, but, in fact, nearly all problems can get sorted out.
The right contractor can handle this kind of job, but only when they have an experienced supervisor, trained work crew and the latest tools developed for the job.
It’s a tough and tricky job, but we can do it. And when we have completed the job and left, your home will be secure and safe again.
Arden-Arcade Basement Waterproofing Company
If you are finding water down in your basement every once in a while, we can figure out why it’s happening and come up with a plan on how to prevent it from happening in the future.
Your Sacramento County basement waterproofing situation may not warrant any sort of work on the interior of the structure itself. Sometimes all the necessary work is spent solely on the grounds and landscape areas surrounding your home.
No matter what your situation is, we can come up with the ideal strategy to correct it.
Mudjacking and Slab Lifting Services
Another service we can do is cement slab raising. Some contractors label this service mud jacking or slabjacking.
If you have a section of your concrete patio, porch or walkway which has sunken down into the dirt so it is no longer the same height as the other sections, we can lift it back up again.
Mudjacking is when we forcefully send a heavy liquid material beneath a sunken cement slab. As soon as this material gathers under the slab, it pressures the slab up to the position you want it to be.
Often property owners would like mud jacking done merely in an attempt to raise the look of their property, but concrete slab raising can reduce accidents and trips from having uneven segments and it may aid with other issues, such as poor water drainage, too. Nearly all jobs are completed in one morning or day.
How Do These Problems Happen?
Well, it’s simply the natural properties of soil. The dirt compacted under your home gradually changes, shifts and tries to move. It stretches and contracts as a consequence of contact with water and temperature changes.
This slow expansion and contracting of your soil can put significant stress on even recent properties.
Most building owners are not going to have a significant foundation or water situation, but a few will. There are some steps a property owner might be able to do in order to help prevent problems from happening.
For starters, they can make sure the lot their house is located on is correctly graded and transfers water away from their house. They can also be sure to have adequate gutters that take the rain which hits the top of their home and directs it away from the house.
Another factor that impacts these problems is the physical composition of the soil underneath the house.
Different kinds of soils vary in the amount of moisture they retain. Some kinds of clay soil retains more water (and swells and contracts) more than other types do.
Even having a massive tree too close to your home can cause troubles. A big tree’s roots might extend under a house, generate tension against a concrete structure and suck water from the dirt, drying it out too much during warm summer weeks.
These kinds of natural stress can result in the development of little cracks in your home’s foundation. These slight splits will allow in moisture, humidity and even tiny insects, and those little splits will get bigger as time goes on.
Do I Need to Get My House Inspected?
Once you have concerns at your CA home, just get it inspected. A quick inspection isn’t something you should wait on.
You shouldn’t just ignore the matter and hoping that it goes away. It won’t go away.
Foundation crack repair is an issue you should manage sooner and not later.
Don’t forget, your foundation physically is supporting your complete home. The floors and walls depend on it. If you forget to resolve it you could land in a worse dilemma later.
Any time rainwater repeatedly gets into a basement it will lead to problems such as mold and mildew. Mold may get serious. And it will just get worse over time.
It’s difficult to sell a property that has any signs that suggest it might have a past structural problem. Shoppers get worried that they may get strapped with a giant repair bill after they actually move in.
You shouldn’t imagine that your trouble is going to be too complicated to solve. And don’t worry that it’ll cost too much.
An experienced contractor can correct practically any trouble you have. And the expense might be lower than what you are visualizing.
