Does My Home Have a Problem?
Look, in some instances, it can be hard to know if you have a big challenge or not.
For instance, many basement concrete floor cracks are standard and ordinary; other times, they might suggest a major problem.

• Cracks in solid surface interior or exterior walls
• Up and down cracks in sheet rock, usually seen between a door frame and ceiling
• Long cracks in a cement floor or foundation
• Gaps between a wall and its ceiling or a wall and floor
• Gaps or separation between two exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
• A damp crawlspace or noticeable pooling of water around your home after a rain
• Your basement seems damp or humid and has a musty smell
• Floors are sagging, weak, look warped or irregular, or floor tiles have become loose or broke

Manhattan Beach Concrete Slab Lifting Repair
Homeowners often see a section of their cement sidewalk, patio, garage or driveway has sunken somewhat over the years.
If this has happened at your place, they can usually repair it by using a technique called mud jacking or slabjacking.
Slab jacking is a cool operation.
This process consists of pushing a thick mud mixture under the section of concrete which has sunken.
The mud expands to fill in all the gaps beneath the concrete and then incrementally drives the slab up to the level it originally was at.
Concrete slab lifting enhances the appearance of walkways and sidewalks by making each segment level and also helps to prevent unexpected trips on uneven segments.
How Do Home Structure Problems Develop?
Well, all around and under your home, the earth can shift slightly a few times each year.
Moisture content, high or low temperatures and a few other small factors can cause the ground to contract or enlarge.
This activity, even though it might be minor, can affect whatever is on top of it, from a structure to a patio or other solid object.
Even while you can’t control our weather, having your house built on a residential lot which has inadequate drainage and improper grading or failing to install and maintain good rain gutters can be significant variables in whether or not your house experiences a structure or water issue.
A few homeowners run into difficulties in one of these areas; most do not.
One of the best ways to reduce home structure problems is to eliminate rain water from collecting around and under your home.
The specific physical characteristics of the soil your house was constructed on is also a prime contributing variable too.
Some types of soil may swell up more than others when they get exposed to moisture.
Close to the water though, our soil characteristics are only mildly absorbent, coastal soils don’t absorb as much moisture or swell as much as some types of soil do. However, as soon as you go inward a little ways, these problem clay soils do become popular.
Another issue that may arise once in a while comes from having a large tree that was planted and growing too near to your home.
When that tree grows too large it might cause complications as the roots spread out beneath the residence and puts tension on water and sewer lines and anything else it comes in contact with.
The natural forces of nature may promote the development of tiny cracking with your house’s structure.
These microscopic cracks invite in moisture and possibly a small insect or two or three, and then those very little cracks can get bigger every year.

Some property owners try to put repairs off since they believe they’ll be moving in a little while.
But it’s very hard to sell any house with warning signs which might reveal a structural problem. Buyers are scared of getting stuck with a large repair bill as soon as they move in.
And, if you are going to sell your home, it’s a seller’s duty to let a potential buyer know about any physical issues with your property.
In a few instances, homeowners imagine that their structure trouble is so terrible that it will turn into a big major project and it will cost them way too much money to do.
They sometimes turn out pleasantly surprised that it might be resolved successfully.
