Does My Home Have a Problem?

A homeowner can often tell they have a structure disorder.

In some cases, the evidence is actually noticeable.

In other cases the indicators are difficult to notice.

These problems can show up in all sorts of different buildings, from old to new and from affordable houses to expensive ones.

This Problem Looks Big – Can it Be Corrected?

Home structure problems can be difficult to solve, but they can be fixed.

Other challenges, like lifting a piece of a concrete walkway, are a lot less complicated.

With that in mind, remedying a house structural challenge requires a qualified contractor together with a reputable crew.

They also require the right tools and equipment to raise and adjust a building that is no longer straight and level.

Waterproofing Under a House

If you get a wet crawlspace from time to time, a waterproofing technician will get to the bottom of your issue and determine why water is leaking into it.

Homeowners sometimes get worried that making their crawlspace area dry will require work on the interior basement walls, and for individuals with finished basements, that will be a challenge.

Many slab waterproofing alternatives do not take any kind of work on the interior walls themselves, but simply on the grounds all around the house.

Once they do an inspection, they can come up with a method to remedy the issue.

East Santa Ana Concrete Slab Jacking Lifting Service

When sections of your cement walkway or patio has sunken a little down in the soil, they can take care of that too.

The approach they use to repair it is called mud jacking (some people refer to it as slabjacking).

During the mud jacking operation, they pump a thick liquid material underneath the part of the slab that needs to be raised up.

This thick substance expands to the holes under the slab, solidifies and drives the concrete slab up. Pretty cool.

Once your walkway, courtyard or driveway slabs are all the same level again, they will look a lot better.

And nobody is going to be stumbling on the uneven edges either.

How Come These Issues Happen?

Well, I am not a natural science professor, but it has something to do with how our ground reacts to the environment.

The ground your house rests on changes from time to time. It moves. It adjusts.

It can expand and settle based on contact with wetness and temperature changes.

The natural properties of dirt acting against a residenceThese contractions and expansions of the soil your house sits on may end up adding stress to even recently built residences.

Although you can’t control our weather, having your house constructed on a lot that has inferior drainage and insufficient grading or declining to add reliable rain gutters can be leading factors in whether or not your property develops a foundation or water situation.

Some homeowners run into challenges in these areas; many others do not.

One of the best strategies to prevent house foundation problems is to keep rain water from being around and under your home.

The composition of the soil your house was built on is a big detail as well.

Some types of soil swell more than others when it gets exposed to water.

Having a large tree too close to your residence could even spark a problem in some situations.

Your considerable tree might have big roots that might reach way underneath your home and brings stress on your slab, and could even interfere with sewer and water pipes.

In some cases, the expansive roots from a sizable tree might even extract a lot of moisture from the ground underneath your building during our really dry and hot summers.

The forces of nature may help with the development of miniature cracking with your house’s basement.

These very small cracks will invite in moisture and humid air and maybe a small bug or two, and then those very little cracks start to get bigger every year.

The Best Advice is Don’t Wait Too Long

If you have a situation at your home, you really should have it checked out and remedied.

The inspection, at least, is not something you should postpone.

It’s only natural to wish that this problem somehow goes away all on its own, but a cement crack or basement foundation fault will not repair itself.

It won’t just get better all by itself.

It is always wiser to address the problem now instead of later.

If you have moisture under your house, it indicates a problem.

Once moisture repeatedly gets into your property it can cause challenges including mold.

And it will only grow worse as time goes by.

Hoping to sell your home without doing the necessary repairs probably isn’t a great idea either.

Not many property buyers are looking for a home that has any indication of water in the basement or structure problems.

In addition, if you know there is a substantial physical situation, you’re obligated to inform the buyer of what it is.

You do not want the buyer to come back after you after the sale has ended.

They will create a strategy to correct your situation.

Try not to worry too much.

Usually lots of cases that appear to a homeowner to be too difficult to correct can typically be fixed.

Granted, it might call for an advanced and often hard process, but these projects can be achieved.
