How Do I Know if My House Has a Problem?
In some instances, a property owner is aware right away they have a structure challenge. They can identify the warning signs. It’s obvious.
But in other instances, it’s hard to see the warning signs.
While the majority of situations occur at homes that have been around for some time, disorders can pop up at all types of properties, from old to relatively new and from basic houses to luxury estates.
Look For the Following
• Spaces around doors, primarily external doors and garage doors
• Doors or windows that stick to their casings when you attempt to open them, or close hard
• There is water in your basement – water should never be down in your basement
• Uneven or sloping interior floors
• Separating or cracking interior molding, primarily crown molding or door molding
• Crevices in interior or exterior brick walls or mortar
• Cracking in solid surface exterior or interior walls
• Vertical splits in sheet rock, commonly seen between a door frame and ceiling
• Large cracks in a cement basement floor or foundation
• Spaces between a wall and its ceiling or a wall and floor
• Gaps or separation between two exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
• A damp crawlspace or obvious pooling of water close to your home after a rain
• Your basement feels damp or humid and it has a musty odor
• Floors are sagging, weak, warped or irregular, or floor tiles are loose or broke
Aren’t These Problems Hard to Fix?
Homeowners are likely to imagine their house issue is likely to be nearly impossible to take care of, but, actually, almost all situations can get sorted out.
Difficult projects need a seasoned contractor and work crew. They also require the exact equipment and tools. They have the experience and tools to get the job done right.
Waterproofing Basements Near You in North and West Fremont
If your basement gets wet, an inspection will try to discover what is allowing water to leak in it.
In order to get your basement dry, they could work on the inside of your basement or they may be capable of getting the job done by just taking care of the exterior.
They might manage to stop rain water from getting into your home by only improving the grading of your lot, replacing rain gutters, a french drain or other strategy. Technicians might not have to access your basement walls whatsoever.
Cabrillo and Brookvale Area Slab Jacking Services
If a part of your cement walkway, courtyard or pathway has sunken under the height it once was, they could fix that too. They use a technique referred to as mudjacking (also referred to as slab jacking).
Mudjacking is a activity where they inject a mud or caulk-like material below a sunken cement slab. This particular thick solution gathers beneath the slab, hardens and pushes the slab to lift up to the original level.
Concrete slab lifting is the favorite solution to fix your sloping porch or sidewalk.
Why Do These Problems Happen?
Underneath your home and driveway, the soil is gradually on the move. It may contract or expand as a result of exposure to moisture, changes in temperature and other factors.
This slow, but regular movement can cause the structure on top of the ground to stress. Elements of foundations can slightly move upward or down or sideways. But even a minimal motion, over a few years, can result in an exaggerated problem with the structure itself.
So, you can’t change the elements or the physical composition of the ground here around the Bay Area, but leaving your house sit on a badly graded lot can be asking for trouble. If your lot does not force rainwater to move away from your house, you could experience a bad predicament in the future.
Likewise, failing to put on sound rain gutters is another oversight homeowners can make. Gutters are a small fix which will help eliminate water issues.
The physical composition of the ground your home was constructed on could be a primary variable as well.
Some types of soil can swell or contract more than other soils when subjected to moisture. Thankfully for those around the East Bay, the soil here isn’t as absorbent as it is in other regions.
Another consideration, although it usually isn’t as common, is having a large tree grow too close to your property. A huge tree might have considerable roots that can range far under your home. These roots might pull all of the water out of your dirt during extended dry and hot months and even exert physical tension on your home structure also.
Through the years, a property might eventually develop a minute crack or two. And a smaller crack can turn into a larger split.
A significant crack will allow in moisture and it just gets worse following that.
Do I Need to Get My House Inspected?
If you think maybe you have a problem at your property, you should get it looked at and repaired if needed. It isn’t something you should put off for long.
Concrete problems do not get better with time. They generally become worse. You might be in a position to put off having the repair work completed, but it could be to your advantage to correct it right away.
When water slowly gets into a basement, it can cause issues over time including mold and mildew. And it too will just become worse eventually.
Perhaps you are thinking about not doing the repairs, since you are considering putting your house on the market. But no home buyer wants to purchase a house that has a structural complication or illustrates indications of water down in the basement.
Plus, if you are planning on selling your house it’s your job to inform buyers about the known important flaws with your house before they agree to buy it. So it really doesn’t make any sense to not get your situation fixed first.
In spite of how awful your circumstances may look, almost all cases can usually be corrected. Some jobs are tougher than others and some may incorporate a long and complicated process, but they can be done.
Try not to get worried until you have your property checked out.
