When Do I Know if My House Has a Problem?
It’s a challenge to see if you’ve got a serious problem with your Southern California home or not.
Some issues are nuanced and need a skilled contractor to offer an opinion.
Other problems may be more detectable.
And problems will show up at both new and old houses.
Some Symptoms of a Foundation Situation
• Cracking in drywall, generally above a doorframe
• Gaps around interior doors, external doors or garage doors
• Large cracks in a concrete foundation or basement floor
• Uneven or sloped interior floors
• Gaps or any separation between external walls or a wall and chimney
• Cracks in interior or exterior walls
• Windows or doors that shut hard or stick to their frames
• Water goes into your basement occasionally
• Gaps between a wall and the ceiling or a wall and the floor
• A damp crawlspace or strange collections of water around your house after rains
• Separated or cracking interior molding, usually crown or door molding
• Your basement is musty, damp and humid
• Floors seem weak, sagging, or irregular
• Cracks in interior or exterior brick walls or their mortar
Is My House Problem Going To Be Really Hard To Fix?
Some house structure problems look like they would be almost impossible to correct, but almost every one can be repaired.
Lots of the repair jobs are rather straightforward; some of these jobs are extremely hard.
These kinds of home repairs take trained, experienced foundation repair contractors and crews, working with some really specific equipment, to alter and set a sinking building foundation, complete a house leveling or other major structure repair.
Slab and Crawlspace Waterproofing Contractor
If you are seeing water in your crawlspace every once in a while, we can determine why it’s happening and come up with a blueprint on how to prevent it from happening any more.
For us to get your crawlspace dry, we might not have to do any waterproofing below ground, but instead solely on the grounds and landscaping right around the home.
We will come up with the appropriate strategy to cure your situation.
Garden Grove Concrete Slab Lifting and Repairs
In case parts of your concrete courtyard, sidewalk, porch or entrance has sunken a bit over the years, we can nearly always handle that as well.
The process we use to elevate it back up is referred to as either slabjacking or mud jacking.
During this mud jacking operation, we force a thick liquid compound down below the area of your slab that has to be lifted up.
This thick compound spreads out and fills the gaps underneath the slab, solidifies and then forces the concrete slab up. Pretty cool.
When each of your sidewalk, porch and driveway slabs are all the same level again, they are going to look better.
And no one will be tripping on the uneven edges either.
Why Is This Happening at My Greater LA Home?
All around and beneath your home, the soil shifts a small amount every so often.
Water, changes in temperature and a few other variables can cause the earth to shrink or expand.
These tiny motions, even though they can be small, can impact whatever is in or on top of it, from a building to a patio or other man-made surface.
Even while you cannot control our local weather, having your house put together on a residential lot that has poor drainage and inappropriate grading or neglecting to put on good rain gutters can be key variables in whether or not your house develops a structure or water issue.
A few homeowners experience difficulties in these areas; many others do not.
The best ways to reduce home structure problems is to restrict water from pooling around and under your home.
The composition of the dirt your home was built on is a major matter as well.
Some kinds of soil swell more than others when it gets moist.
Luckily, most homeowners don’t have these troublesome clay soils.
Even having a sizable tree close to your house might be a element.
A broad tree’s roots can grow well underneath a home and remove moisture from beneath the property during our hot and dry summer months.
This might turn the soil way too dry and force it to shrink.
Natural environmental stress might help to bring about small-scale cracks starting in your home’s foundation.
These little cracks let in moisture and other stuff.
And these minor cracks might get larger every year.
Can’t I Wait?
If you believe you might have an issue, you really should have it looked over.
You may learn that what you were worried about is not anything major.
But if you have it looked at, at least you’ll know for certain.
And you should not merely ignore it and hope that it goes away. It won’t.
Foundation crack repair is a problem you should deal with sooner instead of later.
Your foundation supports your entire house.
The floors, walls, and roof depend on it. If you can’t take care of it you could find yourself in a critical situation later.
If you notice moisture in your basement, it indicates a problem.
If moisture seeps into your house it may cause conditions including mold.
Mold will only get worse over time.
If you’re curious about trying to sell your home, remember, no home buyer is interested in making a down payment on a home that has a structural condition or shows warning signs of moisture previously in the basement.
And besides, since you need to tell a truly serious buyer of any considerable trouble with your house before they purchase it from you, it’s better to resolve the problem before you sell.
A great many conditions which seem to the homeowner to be too difficult to fix can typically be solved.
They might involve a complex and frequently difficult repair process, but they can be accomplished.
