• Gaps or any separation between external walls or a wall and chimney
• Cracking in exterior or interior walls
• Doors or windows that shut hard or stick to their frames
• Water gets into your basement every so often
• Gaps between a wall and the ceiling or a wall and the floor
• A damp crawlspace or strange pools of water close to your house after rain

• Your basement is musty, damp or humid
• Floors appear spongy, sagging, or uneven

West and North Cincinnati Concrete Slab Jacking Service
If a section of your cement sidewalk, veranda or driveway has sunken under the height it once was, they could fix that too.
They make use of a process known as mudjacking (also referred to as slabjacking).
To help you lift your slab back to the height where it originally was, they power a mud-like substance below your slab.
This liquid mud goes into the empty gaps, solidifies and pushes your concrete back up to the suitable height.
When completed, your walkway, porch or driveway will look a whole lot better after all the sections are back to the exact same height, and no one will be tripping on them any more either.
How Does This Issue Occur?
Well, it’s basically just science.
The soil underneath your house slowly changes, transforms and moves a tiny bit. It may expand or tighten depending on exposure to water and temperature.
>This expanding and later contracting of the soil puts tremendous stress on even a newer property.
A house that is situated on a well-graded lot, where excess water is encouraged to move away from the home, and a home that has a proper gutter system is in a better position to resist these issues than a home which does not have decent lot grading or appropriate gutters.
One of the leading factors that impact this situation is something that the property owner can’t control.
It’s the absorbency of the soil and ground that a house is constructed on.
Soil which will absorb and soak up a lot of water will expand more than soil that will not retain moisture well.
Also, the extensive roots of a big tree close to your house might actually extract all the available moisture from underneath your house, making it get too dry during a typical Summer dry months.
This extreme dryness may cause the ground to contract too much.
Over time, a property might gradually experience a simple crack or two.
And a smallish crack can turn into a bigger crack.
A big split will allow in moisture and air and it just becomes worse following that.
Can’t I Just Wait and Get It Done Later?
If you think you could be looking at a situation, just get it checked.
It could be the problem you’re all worried about isn’t anything big at all.
But after you get it looked at, at least you’ll know for sure.
Don’t dismiss it.
You fully understand your foundation supports your entire building.
Your house, the walls, the floors and even the roof all rely on it.
When you spot rainwater in your basement, it suggests a problem.
If moisture drips into your home it may cause troubles like mold and mildew.
And it will just turn worse the longer it’s there.
And if you are preparing to sell your home, remember most buyers don’t want to invest in a house which has a structure issue or shows telltale signs of past water damage.
As a house seller, you need to divulge to the purchaser all major issues with your property or you may get in trouble later.
So you should not just ignore your problem and then leave it up to the next guy.
Try not to worry about your house issue before your inspection and without knowing the important facts.
Most situations that appear too complicated to resolve in a property owner’s eyes can actually get solved.
The repair might incorporate a tricky and often difficult series of actions, but the job will get done.
