I’m Not Really Sure What My Problem Is?
It can be difficult to see if you’ve got a real problem at your Central Valley home or not.
Some problems are subtle and need an experienced contractor to provide an opinion. Other concerns are often more transparent.
And situations will turn up at both new and old buildings.
Typical Clues Your Home Has a Problem:
• A big or extensive crack in your cement basement floor or foundation
• Water collects near to your home after a rain
• Windows or doors are beginning to stick to their frames
• Gaps between an inside wall and a floor or the ceiling
• Any cracking in a solid surface exterior or interior wall
• Spaces between outside walls or a wall and a chimney
• Your basement has gotten damp and humid
• Cracks in a brick wall or mortar
• Water in the basement or crawlspace
• Vertical cracks in drywall, even small ones
• Weak, soft or sloped floors
• Separated or cracked interior molding
• Gaps around doors and their frames

Fresno Basement Waterproofing Company Near Me
If you ever notice water in your basement, our specialists can find out what is happening and discover how rain water might leak into it.
Your basement waterproofing plan may not even involve any work inside the house itself, but instead focus just on the grounds and landscape around the house. We will make a plan to remedy the situation.
Mudjacking or Concrete Slab Lifting in Fresno
Some homeowners notice that a section of their concrete sidewalk, terrace, driveway or garage floor has sunken a little over the years. If this occurred at your property, we can normally fix it by a procedure known as mud jacking or slabjacking.
In an attempt to raise your cement slab back to where it originally was, we push a thick liquid filler solution beneath the sunk slab. This mud flows into the unfilled spaces, hardens and forces your concrete up to the original level.
Once your concrete slabs are all at the same height, your pathway, terrace or driveway will look better and people won’t be tripping and stumbling on the unequal joints any more.
Okay, What Is Causing These Problems?
Well, it’s just the natural properties of our dirt and soil.
The earth below your building changes and moves around. It enlarges and shrinks with exposure to moisture and fluctuations in temperature.
These motions are slow and slight, but they can be ongoing. This continuous expanding and contraction of the ground is straining for even recently built houses.
One of the factors to keeping a structure secure is to keep rain water away from around and under the property. First, any structure which rests on a properly graded residential lot will force rainwater to roll away from the house and not toward it.
A house equipped with dependable gutters and possibly an additional drainage technique such as a French drain, will also be in a stronger position to not experience unwanted water under and around it.
A fundamental element outside your control is the category of soil your house is built on.
Not all soil is the same as the rest. Some types of soil, especially clay soils, will swell when exposed to water much more than other types do. Unfortunately, quite a few areas in the Central Valley have these types of clay soils.
Having a big old tree too close to your residence could even start a problem in some cases. Your huge tree might have big roots that expand way underneath your house and adds force on your structure, and could even conflict with water pipes.
In some cases, the expansive roots from a sizable tree could even suck an excessive amount of moisture from the ground underneath your structure during our really dry and hot Summers.
As time goes by, a property may gradually experience a minute crack or two. And a smallish crack might become a larger crack. A big split will let in moisture and it just gets worse after that.
Is It Okay To Not Do an Inspection?
If you’ve got a situation with your California house, you should get it looked over and fixed. It really isn’t something you should put off for long.
It’s common to hope that the obstacle simply goes away, but cement cracks and defects don’t mend themselves. They won’t improve on their own. It’s always best to address the condition now and not later.
Whenever water incrementally leaks into a basement, it may foster big troubles over time as mold and mildew. These issues will not get any better over time.
Sometimes homeowners hope to put repairs and maintenance off because they believe they’ll be moving in a little while. But it’s hard to sell any home that has signs which may indicate a structure problem. Buyers get scared of getting stuck with a big repair right after they move in.
Also, it is a home seller’s obligation to inform a buyer of any significant home problem. You won’t want to find yourself in a predicament of having to say that you understood there was a serious problem, but you didn’t have it corrected and you didn’t tell the buyer about it.
If you’re coming across a few warning symptoms at your home, you shouldn’t be worried that your condition is going to be too difficult or expensive to be fixed. A skilled Fresno contractor should be able to solve almost any problem.
