Not Sure I Have a Real Problem
When it comes to noticing home structure problems, in some cases the homeowner recognizes right away that something is wrong.
In some instances, the signs are really obvious.
Sometimes the symptoms are tough to see.
These problems can arise in all kinds of houses, no matter what kind of design or age they are.
Things To Stay On the Watch For:
• Water in your crawlspace or basement
• Separating or cracking interior molding (usually door or crown molding)
• Cracks around exterior doors or garage doors
• Floors are irregular, weak or warped
• Doors or windows that stick to their frames
• Cracks in any solid surface wall, brick wall or mortar
• Uneven or sloped floors
• Vertical cracking in the sheet rock between a door frame and ceiling
• Separations between two exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• Large cracks in a cement basement floor or concrete foundation
• New gaps between your wall and ceiling or wall and floor
• Your basement consistently smells musty or seems damp and humid
• Pooling of water near your home after rains
Can My Problem Get Fixed?
Property owners in some cases worry their problem is so bad, the repair job will be extremely hard to perform and cost a lot of money to have it finished.
But in fact, most of these sorts of issues are getting repaired almost everyday somewhere in our town.
Certain projects are quite costly; other jobs are not too bad.
But these home improvements require professional foundation repair companies and crews, working with specialized tools, to adjust and fix a sinking home foundation, perform a house leveling or some other significant structure matter.
Waterproofing Basements and Crawlspaces
If you are sick and tired with putting up with a wet basement, there’s a specialist who can figure out what is causing water to drip into it.
They may come up with a waterproofing solution which will cure your moisture problem without having to physically work inside the basement at all.
It is possible they can eliminate the problem just by working outside your house on the rain gutter system, grounds and landscape areas surrounding your residence.
Sunken Concrete Slab Lifting in Cerritos
If a part of your cement pathway, patio or driveway has sunk under where it once was, they will repair that too.
They use a method called mud jacking (sometimes known as slab jacking).
Mud jacking is where they vigorously pump a thick mixture right under a submerged cement slab.
As soon as this material gathers below the slab, it then pushes the slab to rise up to the height you want it to be.
Concrete slab lifting increases the appearance of walkways and sidewalks by getting each segment the same height and also helps in avoiding unexpected trips on uneven sections.
What Is Causing These Problems?
Well, it’s basically just science.
The soil right below your home gradually changes, transforms and moves a tiny bit.
It may expand or tighten based on contact with liquids and heat or cold.
This expansion and later contraction of the earth puts powerful stress on even a strong, well-built property.
Even while you can’t control the weather here in southern California, having your house sitting on a yard which has inadequate drainage and improper grading can be big variables in whether or not you see a structure situation at your property.
Merely having sensible rain gutters can help keep excess rain water away from your house.
It’s a quick repair that can have a big effect.
One crucial element that a property owner can’t help is the natural physical characteristics of the soil their house is built on.
The composition of soil and ground in different sections of the country may differ significantly.
Some soil varieties are more absorbent than others.
The more absorbent the soil is, the more moisture it retains and the more it’s going to expand when it gets exposed to moisture.
Large expansion is not good.
Having a big tree too close to your home might even cause a problem in some instances.
Your hefty tree might have extensive roots that grow underneath your home and puts stress on your slab, and could even conflict with sewer and water lines.
In some instances, the extensive roots from a hefty tree might even extract too much moisture from the ground underneath your building during our really dry summers.
These natural elements can contribute to the beginning of very small cracks after a few years in solid materials such as cement.
These small cracks welcome in air and moisture and can grow into bigger cracks.
And just one sizable split can produce trouble.
I Want To Put It Off And Do It Later
If you feel your greater Anaheim house has a problem, you should get it checked out.
If it turns out you have a problem, maybe you should get it fixed.
It may not be something you should put off.
Cracking and other problems with your structure are not going to get better over time.
It’s usually advisable to get the obstacle repaired as soon as you can.
The entire house depends on the foundation, it deserves to be taken care of.
Rainwater consistently seeping into a basement might cause circumstances such as mold.
And it will just become worse as time passes.
When you’re planning on selling your home within the next few years, just be aware that almost no home shopper desires to purchase a home which has a serious structure challenge or boasts a background of water seepage in the basement.
Plus, house sellers will need to tell a serious home buyer about any key defect with their house before the sale is completed, so it’s better to fix the issue first.
It doesn’t matter how awful your circumstances might look, nearly all situations can get solved.
Some jobs are bigger than others and some may require a long and complicated repair process, but they can get done.
So try to not worry until you have your home checked out.
