I’m Not Really Sure What The Problem Is
Sometimes homeowners don’t have any problem noticing they have a problem.
Sometimes it is quite noticeable. Other times, the symptoms are hard to notice.
But in many scenarios, the circumstances are somewhere in the center of the two.
The homeowner observes an unusual crack, or one wall seems a bit bowed or a section of the floor seems to slope a little.
But there’s not enough proof for the homeowner to make a conclusion.
That’s where the skills of an experienced foundation inspector comes in.
Signs Your Home Has a Problem:
• Water pools around your house after a rain or you have a soggy crawlspace
• Doors or windows stick to their frames when you open or shut them
• There is rain water down under your house
• Spaces around doors and their frames, especially exterior doors and garage doors
• Uneven or sloping interior floors
• Cracking in exterior or interior brick walls or their mortar
• Up and down cracking in drywall, particularly between a door frame and the ceiling
• Cracks in solid surface exterior or interior walls
• Cracked or separated wood molding, usually crown or door moldings
• Substantial cracks in a concrete floor or foundation
• Damp, unpleasant and musty-smelling basement
• Floors are saggy, weak or bent, or tile floor sections are loose
• Cracks between walls and ceiling or wall and floor
• Separation between exterior walls or wall and chimney
This Problem Looks Serious – Can it Be Repaired?
Homeowners sometimes think their property problem is so big it will be impossible to correct, but, most of the time, most troubles can be fixed.
These kind of home improvements are tricky.
They require a qualified and seasoned foundation repair contractor and crew, loaded with specialized gear, to modify and correct a sunken home foundation, carry out a house leveling or other serious structure operation.
If your basement lets water in during a hard rain, they will eliminate it.
They can determine where that water is getting in and figure out how to stop it. No property owner should deal with a wet crawlspace.
Your basement waterproofing correction might not need any sort of actual work on the structure of your house itself, but they work instead just on the yard and landscape grading immediately outside the house.
Whatever it takes, they will come up with a strategy to correct the matter.
Magnolia Center Concrete Slab Jacking Service
Another service they do is cement slab lifting.
Some people label this procedure mud jacking or slabjacking.
If you see an area of your cement courtyard, driveway or pathway which has sunk down into the dirt so that is no longer even with the other sections, they will lift it back up again.
Slabjacking is an interesting procedure.
This process incorporates pushing a thick mud-like compound under that patch of concrete which has sunken.
The mud mixture fills in all the holes below the concrete and then steadily forces the slab up to the level it originally was at.
Slab lifting enhances the appearance of low walkway areas by getting them all level again. This also helps to prevent trips and falls.
Why Is This Situation Happening to Me?
Well, it’s basically just the science of soil. The earth right under your house slowly but surely adjusts and moves.
It expands and contracts caused by repeated exposure to water and temperature.
This slow, yet steady, expansion and contraction of the ground can place major stress on even on solid homes.
While you can’t command the Southern California climate, having your home built on a lot which has inferior drainage or insufficient lot grading or your property doesn’t have working rain gutters could be major aspects in whether or not you develop a bad condition at your house.
The type of soil your house is built on may be a major variable as well.
Particular sorts of soil swell more than others do when they get damp.
Luckily for most homeowners in SoCal, the soil in many areas of the state is just mildly absorbent, it does not swell as much as it will in some other sections of the country. Some CA communities, however, do have soils that can be troublesome.
Another origin of structure problems that many homeowners disregard is having a big tree too near to your house.
There is a chance of a complication if the tree’s roots snake underneath the house and put pressure on your structure, water and sewer piping.
In some rare conditions, the expansive roots of a big tree that’s too close to a home may also extract moisture away from the dirt below the building, making it too dry during our hot, dry Summer seasons.
These types of ecological strain may result in the development of tiny cracking in the base of your home.
Very small cracking can let in dampness and also have a habit of escalating into larger cracks over time.
Can I Wait Before I Do Something About This?
Look, when you’ve got some problem with your property which is distressing you, simply get a specialist to at least evaluate it.
At least you will know what you are facing.
It might be that you don’t actually have a serious problem and you don’t need to get it fixed.
You may have been worried for no good reason.
But you are better off having it examined and at least understanding what your issue is.
Do not dismiss it.
You are already aware your basement foundation lifts up your whole building.
Your Your whole home, the walls, floors and even the roof all depend on it.
Moisture which leaks under a house can create predicaments like mold.
Mold is not good. And it doesn’t ever improve on its own.
It just gets worse.
If you’re planning on selling your home, no buyer is interested in a property which had any kind of foundation challenge or seems to have warning signals of past water damage down in the basement.
And besides, it’s the home seller’s responsibility to tell a buyer of any major house issues.
You don’t want to say later that you were told there’s a problem, but you didn’t have it fixed.
Don’t assume that your issue is too complicated to do.
And don’t panic that it will cost too much.
An experienced contractor can fix just about any situation you have.
And the cost could be less than what you are assuming.
