What if You’re Not Sure There is a Problem?
Sometimes Missouri homeowners don’t have any difficulty recognizing they have a structure problem.
Many times they are noticeable. Other times, the warning signs are really harder to see.
But in most of the cases we come across, the circumstances fall somewhere in the middle of the two.
A homeowner observes an unusual crack, or a wall seems a little bowed or a part of the floor appears to slope a little.
But there’s not enough visual proof for the homeowner to make their own judgment.
That’s where the skills of a trained foundation inspector will come in handy.
Signs That Could Mean Your House Has a Problem:
• Cracks in sheet rock, normally between the door frame to the ceiling
• Long cracks in a concrete foundation or basement cement floor
• Irregular or sloping interior floors
• Gaps or any separation between exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• Cracking in exterior or interior walls
• Windows or doors that close too hard or stick to their frames
• Water gets into your basement every so often
• Gaps between a wall and its ceiling or a wall and the floor
• A damp crawlspace or strange collections of water near your house after rains
• Separated or cracked interior molding, usually crown or door molding
• Your basement is musty, damp or humid
• Floors feel spongy, sagging, or irregular
• Cracks in interior or exterior brick walls or its mortar

Kansas City Slab Lifting Service
If parts of your cement front walk, terrace or driveway has sunken, they will make that better too.
The operation is referred to as mud jacking (also called slab jacking).
Mudjacking is a procedure where your work team will forcefully push a mud or caulk-like compound below a sunken cement slab.
This particular thick liquid builds below the slab, solidifies and drives the slab to raise up back to the desired level.
Slab lifting improves the look of sunken walkway areas by getting them all the same height again.
This also aids in preventing accidental stumbles, trips and falls.
How Do These Circumstances Come About?
Below your home and driveway, the earth is deliberately moving around.
It expands and contracts thanks to exposure to water, temperature and other elements.
This gradual, but regular motion could cause the structure above the soil be stressed.
Portions of house structures can barely move up or down or sideways.
But even just a minimal movement, over time, can result in an exaggerated issue with the structure itself.
We might not be able to control our weather or the soil makeup here in western Missouri, but there are several variables you can control.
To start with, your property ought to be graded so that it transfers rain water away from your home.
Second, you need a pretty good gutter system for preventing the rain that lands on your house from gathering around it.
The attributes of the ground your home was built on is a big element also.
Some soil varieties swell and contract more than others once they get exposed to water.
Missouri has several types of soil, some locations are worse than others.
The long roots of a big tree close to your house may actually extract all the existing moisture from under your house, making it get too dry during our hot and dry summer months.
This extreme lack of moisture may cause the soil to contract and shrink too much.
After a few years, you might notice slight cracking around the structure of your property.
These minute cracks will allow in moisture and air, and then those smaller sized cracks can grow just a little bigger every year.
