I’m Not Sure I Have a Real Problem?
In many instances it is apparent you have a problem. In other instances, the signs are not so easy to notice.
These challenges can occur at any type of building, from a new home to an old one.
Problem Warning Signs:
• A crack in a cement foundation or basement floor
• Doors or windows stick to their frames when you open or close them
• Water gets in your basement or crawlspace
• Gaps around exterior doors or a garage door and frame
• Irregular or sloping interior floors
• Up and down cracks in drywall between a door frame and the ceiling
• Visible separations between exterior walls or the chimney and a wall
• Pooling of water near your home after a rain
• Spaces between a wall and the ceiling
• Gaps between a wall and the floor
• Basement is too damp or has that musty smell
• Cracking interior or exterior brick walls or mortar
• Separating interior molding, primarily crown or door molding
• Floors are weak, warped or sloping
• Cracking solid surface exterior or interior walls
Is This a Really Big Job?
House structural repairs can be tough, but they can be fixed.
Other challenges, such as raising a piece of a concrete sidewalk, are a lot easier.
That being said, solving a house structure problem requires an expert contractor and work crew, combined with the right tools and equipment to lift and fix a house which is no longer straight and level.

It is possible we may get to cure the situation without needing access to your basement walls at all.
Mudjacking or Concrete Slab Lifting in Clovis
When a patch of your concrete walkway, terrace or driveway has sunk under where it once was, we can handle that too. We use a process called mud jacking (also referred to as slabjacking).
Mudjacking is a procedure where we shoot a mud-like material under the sunken slab. This chemical mud is thick enough to gently force the slab back up to the optimal height.
Concrete slab lifting is the favorite method to fix your sunken porch or sidewalk.
Why Is This Issue Happening to Me?
We can’t see it happen, but the earth shifts a little bit over time. It may contract and stretch.
This happens largely due to the exposure to moisture and temperature.
And even though this motion is really small and irregular, these types of contraction and expanding actions could apply stress on whatever building rests on top of (or even in) that earth. Over time, this persistent stress could affect the condition of just about any kind of connected building.
While you can’t influence the rain or temperature here in Fresno County, if your home is located on a residential lot that has bad water drainage and insufficient grading, these can be major conditions in whether or not you will experience structural problems.
Just putting up effective working rain gutters will help keep excess water away from your home. It is a basic fix that can have a big effect.
The makeup of the soil your home was constructed on can be a key point as well. Some types of soil will swell more than other soils when subjected to water. Unfortunately, The Central Valley is notorious for having areas where these absorbent clay soils create problems with too much expansion and contraction.
Even something as outwardly innocent as having a big tree close to your house can produce a complication. The long-ranging roots of a big tree may expand under a house, press up against the concrete and also suck out too much moisture out of the soil during our hot, dry summer seasons, making the dirt under the home too dry.
Each of these types of environmental stress can cause the introduction of smallish cracks in the basement of your home. And one smaller sized crack can let in moisture and air and it has a way of progressing into a broader crack in time.
Our Best Advice is Don’t Wait Too Long
If you believe your California property has a scenario like this, you should have it examined.
If it turns out you have a problem, maybe you should have it fixed. This isn’t something you should put off for long.
Cement problems don’t get better with time. They often become worse.
You may be able to postpone getting the repair work started, yet it could be in your best interest to tackle it head-on without delay.
If you’ve got rain water seeping in your basement, it might result in situations such as mold and humidity. And these problems grow worse over time.
If you are serious about selling your house, there’s no buyer who wants to purchase a home that has a serious structural ailment or has obvious indications of water seepage in the basement.
And, if you’re working to sell your house, it’s important to inform any serious buyer know about the serious problems with your property or you could be in civil trouble later on.
Avoid getting worried and assuming your condition is too big and difficult to take care of. Or it will be too expensive to repair. A knowledgeable contractor can correct almost any issue you’ve got. And your final cost could be less than what you’re anticipating.
