A number of house problems are easy to recognize; other problems come up so gradually many property owners don’t notice them.

Although most of these troubles happen at older houses, even owners of newer houses might experience them.

• A wide or extensive crack in the basement floor
• Water collects next 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 interior or exterior wall
• Spaces between exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
• Your basement has gotten damp or musty
• Cracks in a brick wall or mortar
• Rain water drips in your basement or crawlspace
• Vertical cracks in drywall, even small cracks
• Weak, saggy or sloped floors
• Separated or cracking interior molding
• Gaps around doors and their frames

Can This Issue Be Corrected?

Big house structure problems are challenging to fix, but they can be worked out.

Homeowners sometimes imagine their issue is either unfixable, or it will cost a lot of money to fix, however that is not necessarily correct.

These building repairs will require a well-trained, professional foundation repair contractor and crew, along with some fairly innovative equipment, to correct a sunken building foundation, help make a house level again or correctly carry out any other serious structure challenge.

Carmichael CA Crawlspace Waterproofing

If you’re seeing water in your basement after a hard rain, they can draw up a sound option to prevent it from happening again. No one wants a wet basement.

Your basement waterproofing treatment might not even call for any work inside the house itself, but instead focus just on the ground and landscape surrounding the home. They will create a way to fix your situation.

Carmichael Concrete Slab Lifting and Repairs

If part of your cement patio, walkway or driveway has sunken some over the years, they will often improve that too.

The method they use is called mud jacking (some companies refer to it as slab jacking).

This process of slab jacking is simple but practical. A heavy mud-like compound is forced right under the concrete that has sunken. The material spreads out to fill up any empty cavity and starts to push up the slab. Once the slab has reached the correct height, the work is over.

After your pavement, terrace or porch slabs are all the same level again, they’re going to look a lot better. And no one is going to be tripping on the uneven edges either.

How Come Some Houses Have This Problem?

While you can’t see it take place, the earth shifts a little with time. It will shrink and stretch.

This happens mainly because of the exposure to water and changes in temperature. Moving ground can help a house to somewhat sink - representation

And while this movement is really small and gradual, these kinds of contracting and expanding actions can add stress on whatever structure rests on top of (or even in) that ground. And over time, this repeated stress might impact the integrity of any kind of connected structure.

Some property owners suffer from a situation in one of these areas; most homeowners will not. One of the big causes of home foundation problems is how much water is around and underneath the house.

A home that’s built on a properly graded lot, where rain water is designed to roll away from the house, and a home that has a sound rain gutter system is in a stronger position to handle these predicaments than a home which does not have decent lot grading or decent gutters.

The physical composition of the soil your house was constructed on could be a key factor as well. Some types of soil will swell more than others do when exposed to moisture. Soil with high-absorbent clays are the worst kinds of soil for expansion and contraction.

Another factor, even though it usually isn’t as frequent, is having a large tree grow too close to your property. A huge tree may have considerable roots that can range far under your home. These roots can extract too much water out of your ground during extended dry periods and may even exert physical pressure on your home structure too.

These stress issues can add to the introduction of smaller concrete cracks with time. Smallish cracks can let in moisture and might grow into bigger cracks. And those bigger cracks can create problems.

Can’t I Just Ignore It?

If you have a situation at your CA home, you should get it inspected and corrected. It really isn’t something you should put off for long.

Remember, your foundation literally holds up your complete house. The walls, floors and roof count on it. If you don’t look after it you might find yourself in a serious situation.

Any time water regularly drips into your basement, it may cause difficulties such as mildew and mold. And these conditions will routinely become worse every year.

Sometimes homeowners try to put needed repairs off because they believe they’ll be moving soon. But it’s hard to sell any home with warning signs that might suggest a structure problem. Prospective buyers get fearful of getting stuck with a large repair once they move in.

And, in case you are trying to sell your home, you want to let any serious buyer know about the large problems with your property or you could get into legal difficulty in the future.

Try not to worry, many circumstances that a property owner may believe is too difficult to do can generally be repaired.

The repairs might require a hard and often rough process, but it can be done. They can get it done.
