Does My Property Really Have a Problem?

In some cases a Northern California homeowner has no difficulty seeing they have a structure problem.

In some cases, the evidence is quite obvious.

In other instances, the homeowner does not have a clue they have any problem. The warning signs are often too subtle.

And new homes are not safe from these issues either. They can appear no matter what kind of home construction you have or however old your property is.

These Are Some Things To Watch Out For

• Spaces around an interior door, exterior door or garage door
• Interior or exterior brick walls or mortar have cracks
• Sizable cracks in a concrete foundation or basement floor
• Cracking going up and down in sheet rock, even if they’re not that long
• Uneven or bouncy interior floors
• Separation between exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• Doors or windows are closing hard and sticking to their frames
• Cracking in exterior walls
• Water gets into your basement way too often
• A wet crawlspace or puddles of water next to your house after it rains
• Separation or cracking in interior molding
• Gaps between walls and the ceiling or the walls and floor
• Your basement seems humid or damp all the time

How Can My Problem Get Fixed?

Major house structural issues are not easy to fix, but they can be done.

Homeowners sometimes believe their situation is either unfixable, or it will cost a lot of money to fix, but that isn’t necessarily true.

A large foundation project will need an expert contractor, with the appropriate work crew and equipment in order to get it done right.

Going under a building, raising it up and getting it level without disturbing the structural integrity of the house is not for the inexperienced.

South San Jose Concrete Slab Lifting

If you see a portion of your cement sidewalk, courtyard, or porch has sunken in somewhat, they can normally lift it back up to where it was meant to be. This process is frequently called either slabjacking or mud jacking.

Mudjacking is a process where you forcefully push a mud-like compound below the sunken cement slab. This mud is thick enough to steadily force the slab up to the desired height.

Sometimes a property owner wants slab jacking done mostly in order to improve the appearance of their property, but cement slab lifting can aid in reducing accidental trips and stumbles that result from having uneven pavement sections. Nearly all jobs are completed in one morning or afternoon.

Why Do These Situations Come About?

Well, most of it is simply science. The soil your home sits on moves and shifts a tiny bit over time.

It may stretch or contract determined by its repeated exposure with moisture and temperature. Illustration of a house settling disaster

This slow, but constant, enlargement and contracting of the earth can place a big amount of pressure on even a new house.

A handful of homeowners suffer from a situation in one of these areas; most do not. One of the significant factors that cause home foundation situations is how much moisture is around and under the house.

A home that’s constructed on a properly graded lot, where rain water is forced to drain away from the house, and a home that has a sound rain gutter system is in a stronger position to manage these situations than a home which does not have positive lot grading or correct gutters.

One key element that a property owner can’t change is the physical composition of the soil their home sits on.

Soil can vary quite a bit by the part of the country you are in. Some soil is more moisture resistant than others. The more absorbent the soil, the bigger volume of water it captures and then the more it can enlarge when it gets exposed to moisture.

Soil that can change a lot isn’t very good. Luckily, most of the ground around the Bay Area isn’t very absorbent.

Another consideration, although it generally isn’t as common, is having a large tree too close to your property. A huge tree may have wide roots that can reach well under your home. These roots might lure all of the water from your dirt during prolonged hot and dry periods and may even place physical tension on your home structure as well.

These kinds of environmental stress may lead to minor cracks in a home’s structure. These minor cracks draw in humidity and bugs, and those little cracks can get larger as time goes by.

The Best Advice is Don’t Wait Too Long

When you’re sure you have some type of issue with your home, you ought to get it examined. A checkup is not something you should wait on.

You should not just ignore it and hope that it goes away. It won’t go away. Foundation crack repair is an issue that is best to deal with sooner instead of later.

Your basement foundation basically holds up your whole home. The walls, floors, and roof rely on it. If you don’t take care of it you could find yourself in a difficult situation later on.

Water routinely getting into a basement may cause problems such as mildew and mold. And those problems will just become worse with time.

You may be interested in putting it off, since you are thinking about selling your house. But almost no real estate buyer wants to put down money on a house that has a foundation problem or illustrates signs of water being down in the basement.

And besides, it’s the house seller’s responsibility to tell the buyer about the serious house faults. You don’t want to have to say that you were told there’s a problem, but you did not get it corrected.

A structure issue may be somewhat distressing. But they will make a strategy to remedy the situation.

Try not to worry too much. Scenarios that seem to the property owner as being too hard to fix can generally end up being repaired. Naturally, the work might involve a fairly complicated and often tough operation, however it can get completed.
