I’m Not Sure My House Has a Problem
In some cases an Anaheim area homeowner has no trouble noticing their house has a structure predicament.
In many cases, the evidence is just fairly obvious.
In other situations, the homeowner does not have a clue they have any problem.
The signs are often too subtle.
And new homes are not protected from these issues either.
They can show up no matter what kind of construction you have or however old your house is.
These Are Symptoms To Stay On the Lookout For:
• Cracking in an exterior or interior brick wall or mortar
• New gaps around doors, especially outside doors and garage doors
• Vertical cracking in sheet rock, frequently between a door frame and ceiling
• Irregular or sloping floors
• A big crack in a cement basement floor or foundation
• Windows or doors that stick to their frames when you try and open them
• Gaps where a wall and ceiling meet, or where a wall and floor come together
• Gaps or any separation between exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• A soaked crawlspace or collection of water near your home after a rain
• Water in your basement
• Separated or cracked wood molding, frequently crown or door molding
• Cracks in a solid surface exterior or interior wall
• Your basement seems damp and has a musty smell
• Floors are uneven, saggy or weak, or tiles have become loose.
Can My Issue Be Repaired?
Property owners often feel their house problem is going to be hard to solve, but, in fact, most situations can get corrected.
Naturally, these types of house repairs require a qualified foundation repair contractor and staff, making use of the right equipment, to fix a sunken house foundation, complete a house leveling process or other crucial structure situation.
Crawlspace Waterproofing Contractor
If you’re frequently discovering water under your house, why not have one of these waterproofing technicians determine what is making it happen.
The proper strategy to your wet foundation could involve doing some waterproofing steps down in your crawlspace, working on the soil height and landscape around your property, or perhaps a mix of the two. They may be able to remedy your situation without needing access to your foundation walls at all.
Slabjacking or Concrete Slab Lifting in Brea
If a section of your concrete pathway, patio or driveway has sunk below where it once was, they will correct that too.
They make use of a procedure called mud jacking (also called slabjacking).
To raise your slab, they shoot a thick substance down under the section of your sunk slab.
This thick liquid swells, dries and forces your concrete back up to the correct height.
Often homeowners would like mud jacking done primarily in an attempt to help the appearance of their house or property, but concrete slab lifting can cut down on mishaps and trips from having uneven sections and it may aid with other concerns, such as poor water drainage, too.
Most jobs are finished in one morning or day.
What Causes This to Happen to Southern California Houses?
The ground under your house and driveway slowly moves slightly.
It can contract or increase slightly because of moisture content and heat or cold.
This movement can bring stress on whatever structure is on top of it.
Most buildings are equipped for some of this activity, but too much activity, too often, could move even a solid, well-built structure.
Even while you can’t influence the weather where you are, having your house located on a lot that has inadequate water drainage or incorrect yard grading or your house doesn’t have proper rain gutters can be key factors in whether or not you develop a nasty situation.
The qualities of the soil your house was constructed on is a big factor too.
Some clay soil types swell and contract more than other soils after they get exposed to moisture.
Another issue that could develop every now and again comes from having a major tree planted too near to your house.
When that tree gets too large it might cause trouble as its roots spread out under the home and puts tension on foundations and water pipes and anything else it comes in contact with.
The forces of nature might contribute to the development of miniature cracks in your home’s structure.
These tiny cracks invite in moisture and possibly a small bug or two, and then those very little cracks can grow larger every year.
Can I Wait On This?
If you worry you might have something going on at your place, make an appointment to have it looked at by a contractor who has experience in this area.
Even if you don’t get the work started right away, at least call somebody to look into it so you know what the situation is.
If you learn you should get some work started, you shouldn’t neglect that advice.
Don’t forget, your foundation holds up your complete home.
The roof and walls all depend on it.
These problems could be covered when they are learned.
Moisture that gets under a house can create concerns in time including mildew and mold.
Mold is not good. And it doesn’t get better.
It only becomes worse.
If you’re evaluating trying to sell your house in the next few years, just be aware that almost no buyer wants to get involved with a home which has a serious structural situation or has a history of water damage.
Plus, house sellers should advise a serious home buyer about any extensive physical defect with their home before the sale is completed, so it’s better to fix the issue first.
In certain situations, property owners imagine their problem is so severe it will turn into a big significant project and cost them lots of money to repair.
They sometimes end up being surprised that it may be resolved successfully.
But a homeowner usually won’t know for certain until they have it examined.
