What if You’re Not Sure There is a Problem?
Many times a San Bernardino homeowner has no problem seeing they have a structure predicament.
In many cases, the evidence is fairly evident.
In other instances, the property owner does not have a clue they have a problem.
The signals are too subtle.
And newer homes are not protected from these problems either. They can appear no matter what type of construction you have or no matter how old your property is.
Here are Symptoms You Could Have a Foundation Issue
• A big or long crack in the basement cement floor or foundation
• Water collects near to your house after a rain
• Windows or doors are starting to stick to their frames
• Spaces between an interior wall and a floor or the ceiling
• Cracks in any sort of solid surface exterior or interior wall
• Gaps between outside walls or a wall and the chimney
• Your basement has gotten damp or humid
• Cracking in a brick wall or its mortar
• Rain water under the house or crawlspace
• Vertical cracks in drywall, even small ones
• Weak, sagging or uneven floors
• Separated or cracking wood molding
• Spaces around door frames
Is My Problem Going To Be Really Hard To Fix?
House foundation repairs can be difficult, but they can get corrected.
Other concerns, like lifting a piece of a concrete walkway, are a lot less difficult.
However, these kinds of home improvements require experienced and trained structure repair contractors and teams, utilizing specific equipment, to modify and fix a settling property foundation, perform a home leveling or carry out another serious structure issue.
If your crawlspace or basement is wet, an inspection will attempt to find out what is causing rain water to leak into it.
Property owners sometimes worry that making their basement waterproof is going to require work on the interior basement walls, and for people with finished basements, that will be a challenge.
Many home waterproofing alternatives might not take any work on the interior walls themselves, but simply on the grounds all around the house.
After they complete an examination, they will create a way to solve the issue.
Arrowhead Mudjacking and Slab Lifting Services
If part of your concrete garage floor, sidewalk or courtyard has sunk, they can usually get that corrected too.
The procedure to raise it back up is known as slab jacking or mud jacking.
During the mud jacking procedure, they force a thick, mud-like material underneath the section of your cement slab that needs raising.
This thick substance expands, stiffens and presses the slab up. Kinda cool.
Concrete slab lifting enhances the look of low walkway sections by getting them all the same height again. This also helps prevent trips and falls on your property.
How Come These Issues Happen?
The ground under your home and driveway incrementally moves a tiny bit. It can contract or increase slightly owing to water content and heat or cold.
This movement will place stress on whatever building is sitting above it. Most properties can handle a little of this movement, but excessive movement, too often, could move even a well-built home.
While you can’t change our local weather, having your home built on a lot that has inadequate drainage and incorrect grading or neglecting to put on good rain gutters can be important reasons in whether or not your property experiences a structure or water problem.
Only a few property owners have issues in one of these areas; many more do not.
The best ways to stop house foundation problems is to restrict water from settling around and under the house.
The makeup of the soil your home was constructed on can be a critical issue as well.
Some types of soil will swell or contract more than other soils when in contact with water.
The type of soil in Southern California can vary from one area of town to the next.
Another issue, even though it generally isn’t as common, is having a large tree grow too near to your property.
A big tree might have extensive roots that might reach well underneath your home.
Those roots can pull all the water from the ground during extended dry months and even place physical pressure on your building’s structure also.
At some point, several stress conditions against your property may eventually result in a tiny cracking or two to take place.
And a tiny crack can bring about a bigger split.
Significant cracks will let in dampness and it just becomes worse from there.
Do I Need to Get My Home Inspected?
If you feel you may have troubles at your home, you should get it inspected by a contractor who has some experience in this field.
Maybe you don’t get the project started right away, at least ask someone to have a look at it so you realize what your situation is.
Cement problems won’t get better with time.
They normally get worse.
You might be willing to wait on getting the repair work done, but it could be in your best interest to handle it head-on soon.
Any time rain water leaks under a house it will lead to headaches like mold growth.
Mold can be really serious.
And it could just grow worse over time.
If you’re considering selling your home, remember, no buyer chooses to invest in a home with a foundation dilemma or has signs of water getting into the basement.
And besides, since you need to tell a truly serious home buyer of any significant issue with the house before they buy it from you, it’s better to fix the issue before you sell.
In certain situations, many homeowners think their issue is so bad it will need a significant project and a lot of money to fix, but they turn out to be pleasantly surprised that it can get repaired rather quickly.
But a homeowner won’t learn for sure until they have it checked out.
