I’m Not Sure I Have a Problem
Sometimes it is just obvious there is a problem.
In other instances, the indications are not so easy to see.
These conditions can arise at any kind of building, from a newer house to an older one.
Typical Warning Signs of a Foundation Condition?
• Cracks in drywall, often from a door frame and the ceiling
• Gaps right around interior doors, exterior doors or garage doors
• Big cracks in a concrete foundation or cement floor
• Irregular or sloping interior floors
• Gaps or any separation between external walls or a wall and chimney
• Cracking in interior or exterior walls
• Doors or windows that shut too hard or stick to their frames
• Rain water goes into your crawlspace every so often
• Gaps between a wall and the ceiling or a wall and the floor
• A damp crawlspace or strange pools of water around your house after rains
• Separated or cracked interior molding, usually crown or door molding
• Floors feel spongy, sagging, or uneven
• Cracks in interior or exterior brick walls or its mortar
Can My Problem Be Corrected?
A property owner may think their house problem is going to be nearly impossible to correct, but, in reality, most situations can be fixed.
A large foundation job will need a trained contractor, with the appropriate work crew and tools to get it done properly.
Going under a house, lifting it up and making it level without breaking the structural strength of the building is not for the inexperienced company.
El Paso Crawl Space Waterproofing Service
If you get rain water under your place after a hefty rain, they can come up with a solution to stop it from happening again.
No one should have a wet crawl space.
Your waterproofing treatment may not need any real work to the structure of your house at all, but work instead just the ground and landscaping directly around the home.
No matter what it takes, they will come up with an agenda deal with the matter.
El Paso Concrete Mudjacking Services
One more popular service is mudjacking. Mudjacking is often named slabjacking or mud jacking.
This is the method used to raise up areas of your cement sidewalk, patio or porch that has slowly sunk a bit into the soil over the years.
With this mudjacking operation, they power a mud mixture down below the part of your concrete which needs to be elevated up.
That thick substance fills up the holes underneath the slab, stiffens and drives the slab up. Pretty cool.
Cement slab raising will improve the appearance of sunken walkway segments.
It should also help prevent tripping incidents and falls.
Why Is This Situation Happening to Me?
The soil under your home and driveway steadily moves. It can compress or expand slightly stemming from water content and changes in temperature.
This movement will put stress on whatever structure is on top of it. Most buildings are equipped for some of this activity, but excessive activity, too often, could move even a new structure.
Although you can’t influence the weather or the composition of the soil here in West Texas, leaving your house built on a yard which has awful drainage or insufficient grading can be key factors in whether or not you develop a negative situation at your house.
In addition, simply having sensible gutters can really help keep unwanted water away from your home.
It’s a simple repair which can have a big effect.
A significant element outside your control is the type of soil your home is constructed on.
Not all soil is the same.
Some varieties of soil will swell up when exposed to moisture much more than other types do.
Much of the soil found around Texas is either medium-to-highly absorbent, so that can be a problem. Absorbent soils can swell and contract more than is good for some homeowners.
An additional common cause of challenges is having a big tree too near your house.
This can lead to problems when the roots grow beneath the home and put tension on sewer and water pipes as well as your slab.
These types of environmental stress can lead to tiny cracks in a house’s structure.
These tiny cracks bring in humidity and small insects, and those minor cracks can grow larger as time goes by.
Can I Wait On It?
If you worry you could be noticing a predicament, you probably should get it looked over.
Maybe the problem you’re all concerned with isn’t anything important.
But when you get it looked at, at least you will know for sure.
A concrete problem won’t improve over time all by itself.
It will commonly only get worse.
You could be in a position to defer getting the corrective repairs completed, but it might be in your best interest to deal with it now.
And if you often see rainwater down in your crawlspace, the mixture of water and time can result in mold growth.
And getting mold at your home could be a real mess.
If you think you will just put your house for sale instead of correcting the situation, that is not a good idea either.
Telltale signs of structure faults or wet crawl spaces scare away almost every buyer aside from the professional house flippers.
And, in case you are hoping to sell your property, you need to let a serious buyer know about the serious physical troubles with your home or you might get involved in civil trouble months after the sale.
You shouldn’t worry about your house issue without knowing the details.
The majority of situations that look way too impossible to resolve in a homeowner’s view can almost always wind up getting worked on and corrected.
The repair might involve a tricky and often challenging number of steps, but the project will get done.
