Sometimes It’s Hard to Know If You Have a Problem
Usually a Maricopa County homeowner can easily see they face a structure condition.
In some circumstances, the evidence is simply clear.
Other times the problem is harder to find.
Unfortunately, these problems can turn up no matter what kind of house you have.
Evidence Homeowners Could Be On the Watch For:
• Floors have become irregular, bouncy or pitched
• There are puddles of rain water near your house after it rains
• Separating interior molding, often crown or door molding
• Any cracking in exterior or interior walls, bricks or mortar
• Gaps around a door, often an exterior or garage door
• Doors or windows are sticking to their frames when you open or close them
• Vertical cracks in sheet rock, often up between your door frame and the ceiling
• Separations between exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• Big cracks in your concrete floor or foundation
• Spaces between a wall and floor or wall and ceiling
Can My Problem Be Corrected?
Substantial house structural problems are very hard to repair, but they can get done.
Property owners might suspect their own situation is either unfixable, or it costs a lot of money to fix, but that isn’t necessarily the case.
However, these types of home repairs do need experienced foundation repair contractors and trained crews, using the best tools, to perform a proper house leveling, turn around a settling building structure, or properly undertake any other serious house challenge.
Waterproofing Crawl Spaces
If you are frequently getting water under your house, why not have one of these waterproofing specialists figure out what is letting it happen.
They might create a waterproofing solution which will resolve your moisture condition without needing to physically work on your walls at all.
It’s possible they can fix the issue by working outside your property on the rain gutters, soil grading and landscape close to your house.
Estrella Village Concrete Slab Jacking Lifting Service
When a part of your concrete walkway, veranda or pathway has sunk beneath the height it once was, they will change that too.
They use a technique termed mudjacking (also known as slab jacking).
This process of mud jacking is very reliable, yet quite simple.
They make use of a heavy liquid material which gets pumped straight underneath the cement section that has sunk.
This thick compound flows around and fills up any unfilled hollows and then starts to power the slab up.
Once the slab has risen to the required height, they stop. Pretty simple really.
Besides the appearance, the main reason homeowners pay for slab jacking is because having unequal concrete segments may result in trips, falls and, in the warm months, stubbed toes. Nearly all projects are completed in just a few hours.
How Does This Problem Occur?
Well, it’s just the natural science of soil.
The ground beneath your home shifts and moves. It expands and contracts depending on exposure to moisture and temperature. This expansion and contraction of the soil applies considerable stress on even a good house.
While you can’t manipulate our weather or the physical makeup of the soil, there are a few things you can do.
A couple of effective steps to take include making certain the lot where your home rests is properly graded and has an appropriate drainage plan and you have hooked up a decent gutter system to push that rain water away from your building.
One crucial component that a property owner can’t change is the composition of the dirt their home sits on.
Soils are all different.
Some soils are more absorbent than others are.
The more absorbent the dirt, the more moisture it catches and then the more it will enlarge when it gets exposed to moisture.
Soil that can change a lot isn’t very good for a homeowner.
One more secondary consideration could be the presence of a sizable tree which is way too near your house.
During a dry spell, a large tree’s vast roots might draw all the moisture from the soil around it.
And massive roots might place stress against your home’s structure too.
These types of environmental stress may lead to tiny cracks in your home’s structure.
These minor cracks draw in humidity and little bugs, and those little cracks can get larger as time goes by.
Can I Just Ignore It?
When you have difficulties with your property, you really should have it checked out soon and then fixed if it is needed.
The home inspection, at a minimum, is not something you should postpone.
You should not neglect it and just hope that it magically goes away.
Because it won’t.
A foundation crack repair job should be tackled fairly quickly.
You fully understand your basement foundation literally holds up the complete structure.
Your walls, floors and roof all count on it. If you do not take care of it you might only make it worse and you could wind up in a difficult predicament later.
When rain water drips under a home, it can lead to problems including humidity and mold. Plus, the volume of moisture getting in will often climb each year.
Hoping to sell your house without doing the repairs generally isn’t a good idea either.
Almost no house buyers will be attracted to a property which has any sign of past water in a crawl space or structural problems.
Plus, since a seller needs to tell a serious real estate buyer of any serious issue with your house before they buy it from you, it is better to take care of the condition before you sell.
Remember, a lot of instances where a property owner may believe to be too hard to do can generally be resolved.
The repairs could call for a complicated and sometimes difficult procedure, however it can get completed.
