Sometimes It’s Hard to Tell If You Have a Problem or Not
Normally it is apparent when you have a concern. Sometimes, the signs are not so easy to see.
These problems can occur at any style of house, from a new home to an older one.
Here Are Signs That Might Signal You Have a Problem:
• Cracks in an interior or exterior brick wall or its mortar
• New spaces surrounding doors, particularly outside doors and garage doors
• Vertical cracks in sheet rock, typically between a door frame and the ceiling
• Bent or sloped floors
• A long crack in a cement basement floor or foundation
• Doors or windows that stick to their frames when you attempt to open them
• Gaps where a wall and ceiling meet, or where a wall and floor meet
• Gaps or any separation between exterior walls or one wall and chimney
• A wet crawlspace or collection of water around your house after a rain
• Water down in your basement
• Separated or cracked interior molding, typically crown or door molding
• Cracks in a solid surface interior or exterior wall
• The basement feels damp and has a musty smell
• Floors are irregular, saggy or weak, or floor tiles have become loose.
This Problem Looks Serious – Can it Be Fixed?
A property owner may believe that some foundation problems could be very difficult to correct, but, in fact, almost all can be solved by a professional.
Difficult projects will need a highly trained contractor and work staff. They also need the exact equipment. We’ve got the knowledge and machines to get your job done right.
Meridian Basement Waterproofing Company Near Me
If you get water inside your basement following a significant rain, they will develop a way to prevent it from happening. No one should have a wet basement.
The right solution for your wet basement could entail doing some waterproofing activities down in your basement, concentrating on the grading and landscape areas outside your property, or maybe a mixture of the two. They may be able to remedy your situation without needing to have access to your basement walls at all.
Meridian Idaho Slab Lifting Service
Some homeowners realize a section of their cement walkway, patio, courtyard or garage floor has sunken a little through the years. If this has occurred at your property, they can usually remedy it by a procedure often called mud jacking or slab jacking.
Mudjacking is a treatment where your contractor forcefully push a mud-like or caulk-like substance underneath a low cement slab. This kind of heavy solution amasses under the slab, stiffens and pushes the slab to rise back up to the correct level.
In addition to appearance, the primary reason homeowners pay for mud jacking is because having irregular concrete sections can bring about trips, accidents and, in the summer months, stubbed toes. Nearly all projects are completed in just a few hours.
Are There Explanations Why These Things Happen?
Well, it’s just the natural science of soil. The ground beneath your house periodically adjusts, transforms and moves. You won’t ever notice it happen, but it happens.
The ground shrinks and grows based on exposure to moisture and variations in temperature.
This irregular expansion and shrinking of the earth can lay stress on just about any building, even a newer house.
One of the keys to keeping a structure solid is to keep moisture away from nearby and underneath the home.
First, a building that rests on a competently graded lot will encourage rainwater to flow away from the building instead of toward it.
A home furnished with efficient gutters and possibly another water flow technique such as a French drain system, will also be in a stronger position to not encounter excess water under or around it.
One important variable that a property owner can’t impact is the physical makeup of the soil their property is built on.
The makeup of soil and ground in different sections of the country can differ substantially.
Some soil varieties will be more absorbent than others. The more absorbent the soil, the more moisture it holds and the more it will expand when it gets exposed to moisture. Big expansion is not good. Luckily for us, most southwest Idaho area soil is not too absorbent.
These kinds of external stress can contribute to little cracks with your house’s structure. Then these small cracks allow in moisture and little bugs, and these smallish cracks might get wider each year.
Can I Worry About This Later?
If you or someone else has a sense that you could be facing a problem with your house, you probably should have it inspected. At least then you’ll understand whether or not you have a real problem and if it has to be remedied immediately or not.
The inspection itself is not something you should put off.
A cement problem is not going to improve over time. They will normally get worse. You could be able to postpone having the corrective repairs done, yet it could be to your advantage to tackle it right now.
Any time rainwater incrementally seeps into a basement, it can lead to complications over the years as mildew and mold. These issues will not become any better over time either.
In case you are considering listing and selling your home, keep in mind, almost no home buyer wants to make a strong bid on a home with a structure issue or displays warning signs of moisture in the basement.
And, if you are planning to sell your house, it’s your duty to let a potential buyer know about any physical troubles with your home.
In certain situations, many property owners think their house issue is so bad it will need a significant repair project and plenty of money to resolve, but they often wind up being pleasantly surprised that it can get repaired rather quickly. But the homeowner won’t learn for sure until they have it inspected.
