Think You Have a Problem, But You’re Not Sure?
In some situations, a property owner is aware right away there is a structure problem.
They’re able to see the symptoms. It’s really obvious.
But in other cases, it’s hard to see the symptoms.
And while most troubles take place at homes that have been around for some time, trouble can turn up at just about all kinds of properties, from old to relatively new and from basic houses to luxury homes.
Indicators To Be On the Watch For:
• 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 too hard
• There is water in your basement – water should never be down under your house
• Irregular or sloping interior floors
• Separated or cracking wood molding, especially crown molding or door molding
• Splits in exterior or interior brick walls or mortar
• Cracking in solid surface interior or exterior walls
• Vertical cracks in sheet rock, regularly seen between a door frame and ceiling
• Significant cracks in a concrete floor or foundation
• Gaps between a wall and its ceiling or a wall and floor
• Gaps or separation between exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• A damp crawlspace or obvious pooling of water close to your home after a rain
• Your basement seems damp or humid and possesses a musty odor
• Floors are loose, weak, look warped or uneven, or floor tiles have become loose or broke
Aren’t These Problems Difficult to Fix?
A homeowner might assume that certain foundation problems might be almost impossible to correct, but, in fact, nearly all can get corrected by a professional contractor.
These kind of home improvements require professional foundation repair contractors and crews, utilizing special equipment, to adjust and fix a sinking building foundation, complete a house leveling process or other significant structural matter.
In case your slab area or basement is often getting wet, these waterproofing specialists can figure out what is causing rain water to get into it.
To get your building watertight, they may do a little work under your house, or they might aim just on the ground and landscape areas close to your residence, or it might be necessary to do a combination of the two.
Sometimes, just a small regrading of a lot yard, putting on gutters or installing an outside drain can cure the problem while not having to work on the actual basement walls at all.
Costa Mesa Concrete Slab Lifting Services
Another service they do is concrete slab lifting.
Some folks label this process mudjacking or slab jacking.
If you notice a portion of your cement courtyard, porch or sidewalk that has sunken down into the ground so it is no longer even, they can raise it back up again.
Mudjacking is when they forcefully send a thick liquid solution below a sunken concrete slab.
Once this thick compound collects under the slab, it pushes the slab to rise up to the position you want it to be.
When your concrete slabs are all the same height, your pathway, terrace or driveway will look a lot better and people will not be tripping and stumbling on the uneven joints of adjoining segments any more.
Why Do These Issues Arise Anyway?
Well, it’s simply the natural science of soil. The soil under your home sporadically adjusts, shifts and moves. You won’t see it happening, but it happens.
The earth shrinks and grows based on exposure to water and changes in temperature. This occasional expanding and contraction of the soil can put stress on any type of structure, even a well-built house.
The good news is, most property owners don’t experience significant foundation or water troubles, but some do.
There are a couple of things a homeowner can do to help avert problems.
First they can make sure the yard their home is built on is properly graded to help move water away from their home.
And they should make sure they’ve got rain gutters that collects all the rain that falls on their house and move it away from their house too.
The properties of the earth your home was built on is a big component also.
Some soil varieties, such as certain clay soils, swell and contract more than others once they get wet.
The long roots of a big tree close to your house can actually take all the moisture from under your building, making it get too dry during our dry and hot Summer months.
This extreme lack of moisture can cause the soil to contract too much.
Through the years, a home may gradually generate a simple crack or two.
And a smaller crack can turn into a bigger split.
A big split can let in air and moisture and it only gets worse after that.
Is It Okay To Not Do an Inspection?
If you have an issue at your house, you really should have it checked out pretty soon and fixed if it is required.
The check up, at a minimum, isn’t something you should delay.
You shouldn’t try to ignore the matter and just hope it magically goes away.
It won’t go away on its own.
Foundation crack repair is an issue a homeowner should handle sooner as opposed to later on.
Remember, your basement structure physically is supporting your whole building.
The roof, walls and floors rely on it.
If you forget to fix it you may land in a serious circumstance years from now.
Water gradually leaking under a building will cause problems such as mold. And those conditions will only worsen over time.
Some property owners try to put necessary repairs off since they think they will be moving in the near future.
But it’s very hard to sell a home that contains warning signs which may reveal a foundation problem. Real estate buyers are concerned about getting stuck with a big repair right after they move in.
And if you know your place has a significant issue, you’re obliged to tell the prospective buyer of what it is.
You wouldn’t want the buyer coming back after you when the sale is finished.
Avoid getting worried into thinking that your problem is too big and complicated to take care of. Or that it will be too overpriced to take care of.
A seasoned contractor can cure any type of difficulty you have.
And your final cost may be less than what you’re expecting.
