Think You Might Have a Problem, But You’re Not Sure?
In some cases homeowners are unable to see they have a structure challenge; In other occasions, the symptoms are apparent.
And lots of examples are someplace in the middle.
The homeowner notices a crack, a somewhat uneven wall or a floor that is a little sloped.
But there usually isn’t adequate proof for the homeowner to make their own determination.
This is where the skills of a foundation inspector comes into play.
Be Wary of Any of the Following Conditions:
• Spaces around doors, specifically outside doors and garage doors
• Windows or doors which stick to their frames when you attempt to open them, or close too hard
• There is water under your home – water should never be in your crawlspace or basement
• Uneven or sloping interior floors
• Separating or cracking wood molding, primarily crown molding or door molding
• Spaces in interior or exterior brick walls or mortar
• Cracks in solid surface exterior or interior walls
• Up and down splits in sheet rock, commonly seen between the door frame and ceiling
• Large cracks in a concrete floor or foundation
• Gaps between a wall and ceiling or a wall and floor
• Gaps or any separation between two exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
• A soaked crawlspace or obvious pooling of water near your home after a rain
• Your building seems damp or humid and has a musty odor
• Floors are sagging, weak, warped or irregular, or floor tiles are loose or broke
Are These Problems Really Hard to Fix?
Homeowners often suppose their property problem will be nearly impossible to take care of, but, actually, most problems can be fixed.
With that in mind, solving a building structure problem requires an experienced contractor and crew, combined with the appropriate tools and equipment to elevate and fix a house that is no longer straight and level.
Waterproofing Crawlspaces in Fontana
If you get a wet crawlspace once in a while, a waterproofing specialist can get to the bottom of your issue and find out why water is dripping into it.
It’s possible they may manage to cure the problem without needing to have access to the basement walls at all.
Fontana Slab Jacking Services
If a section of your concrete pavement, courtyard or driveway has sunk below where it is supposed to be, they will have that changed.
The approach is generally known as slab jacking.
(Folks sometimes call it mudjacking because they like to consider wet cement as mud.)
Mudjacking describes the method where they inject a dense liquid solution beneath a low slab.
This thick compound is strong enough to slowly force the slab up until it gets to the original height.
Cement slab lifting improves the look of sunken walkway and sidewalk segments by making them all level again. This also helps to prevent accidental stumbles, trips and falls on your property.
Why Does This Situation Happen?
Well, it’s just the natural science of soil.
The ground beneath your home adjusts and changes. It swells and contracts dependant upon contact with moisture and temperature. This contraction and expansion of the earth applies substantial stress on even a well-constructed house.
While you can’t manipulate the weather or the physical qualities of soil, there are steps you can take.
A couple of effective steps to take include ensuring that the lot where your house rests is correctly graded and has an appropriate drainage plan and you have installed a good gutter system to escort rain water away from your house.
The kind of soil your house was constructed on can be a crucial variable too.
Particular sorts of soil swell and contract more than other soils when they get exposed to moisture.
The soil in California varies from town to town. In much of western California, it is only mildly absorbent, it doesn’t swell as much as it will in a few other parts of the country.
The substantial roots of a big tree which is too close to your home might actually extract all the available moisture from underneath the house, making it get too dry during a typical hot and dry summer months.
This dryness can cause the soil to contract and shrink too much.
As the years go by, environmental forces working against your building structure could lead to several smaller cracks.
Many times small cracks stay smaller sized; other times they grow big.
Big cracks invite in moisture and air.
And moisture and humidity under your house isn’t good.
The Best Advice is Don’t Wait Too Long
If you believe you may have troubles at your house, you really should have it looked at.
It could be that what you’re worried about is not anything important.
But if you get it looked at, at least you will know for certain.
Cracks and issues with your basement are not going to magically improve over time all on their own.
It’s best to get the trouble corrected as quickly as you can.
The complete building rests on the foundation, it should be watched out for and maintained.
Water continually leaking under a house may cause problems such as mildew and mold.
And those problems will only become worse eventually.
And if you imagine you will simply put your home on the market before fixing the problem, that probably is not a good idea either.
Signals of structural faults or damp crawlspaces scare away nearly every buyer excluding the professional property contractors.
If you are going to sell your house, you want to reveal to the potential buyer any known substantial physical troubles with your house or you could get into trouble later on.
If you’re coming across a few warning symptoms at your house, don’t be worried that the condition is going to be too hard or too expensive to get corrected.
A skilled Fontana contractor can repair just about any situation.
