Does Your House Have a Problem?
In some cases, a Dallas County homeowner can see they have a structure issue.
Sometimes, the evidence is really obvious.
In other cases the problem is not easy to see. And no matter what type of home construction you have, these issues might show up.
What Are A Few Prevalent Symptoms of a Foundation Situation?
• An unusual crack
• Gaps around doors and trim, including external doors and garage doors
• Uneven or sloped interior floors
• Doors and windows which stick to their frames when you open or close them
• Splits with your outside or inside brick walls or mortar
• There’s water down around your crawl space after a rain
• Separating or cracking interior molding, commonly door or crown molding
• Cracks in a solid surface exterior or interior wall
• Vertical cracks in sheet rock, happens most often between a door frame and ceiling
• A damp crawlspace or water collecting too close to your home
• Large cracks in a concrete floor
• Floors are irregular, spongy, or floor tiles have become loose or broken
• Spaces between a ceiling and a wall or the floor and a wall
• Gaps in between exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
This Situation Looks Like a Big Problem
A homeowner might imagine that some foundation faults will be extremely hard to solve, but, in fact, almost all can be fixed by a professional contractor.
However, these house repairs are challenging.
They require a qualified and experienced foundation repair company and crew, backed up with specific tools, to modify and fix a settling home foundation, do a house leveling or other significant structure procedure.
Waterproofing Crawl Spaces in Mesquite
If you have a wet crawl space, these specialists will determine what is causing rain water to drain into it.
Your crawlspace waterproofing process may not demand almost any work on the inside of the structure itself. Many times all of the necessary labor is used solely on the ground and landscape around the house.
Regardless of what condition your property is experiencing, they can come up with a suitable way to rectify it.
Mesquite Slab Jacking Services
If sections of your cement garage floor, sidewalk or courtyard has sunk, they can typically get that fixed too.
The technique used to get it done is called slab jacking or mudjacking.
Mudjacking or slabjacking describes an operation where technicians push a thick liquid substance below the sunken cement section.
Once they force this filler material beneath the concrete, it spreads out and fills up the gaps below it and is compacted enough to push that slab up back to its original height.
Once your pavement, terrace or driveway slabs are all the same level again, they are going to look much better.
And nobody is going to be stumbling on them either.
How Do These Problems Occur?
Beneath your home and driveway, the topsoil is gradually moving around.
It may contract or expand as a result of moisture, heat or cold and other elements.
This gradual, but constant movement can cause the structure on top of the soil to stress.
Portions of foundations can barely move up or down or sideways. But even a minimal movement, over a few years, can lead to an exaggerated problem with the structure itself.
Although you can’t control the rainfall or temperature around DFW, if your house is built on a lot that has bad drainage and inappropriate grading, these can be important criteria in whether or not you will have to put up with structure problems.
Merely installing sound rain gutters will really keep excess water away from your house.
It’s a simple fix which can have a big impact.
An additional significant factor in deciding potential structure complications is the composition of the soil the house rests on.
There are particular types of soil which catch more moisture than other soils do.
In most of Texas, we have tricky soil. Much of our soil makeup is classified as highly absorbent.
These absorbent soils can foster expansion and contraction, which puts a burden on any structure.
One rather uncommon cause of structure complications takes place when you have a really large tree too close to your house.
This tree can create a dilemma if it’s roots spread underneath the house and affect your slab or water lines.
The long roots from a huge tree too close to your home might also draw out too much moisture out from the earth under your home.
Of course, this could only occur during a dry and hot Summer.
Such external pressure can give rise to very small cracking in your home’s foundation.
These modest cracks let in humidness and tiny insects, and those smaller cracks can grow larger as time passes.
Can’t I Just Put it Off?
Look, if you’ve got some problem with your house that is troubling you, get a contractor to at least have a look at it.
Then you’ll know what your condition is.
It could end up that you don’t actually have a significant problem and you don’t really need to have it fixed.
You may have been worrying for no good reason.
But you are better off having it examined and at least knowing exactly what your issue is.
Cracking and troubles with your cement won’t magically get better on their own.
It is best to have the challenge remedied as quickly as you can.
The entire house resides on its foundation, it has to be watched out for and maintained.
And if you are noticing small amounts of water down in your crawl space on a somewhat regular basis, it could end up in mold.
And nobody wants to have a mold and mildew situation in their house.
If you think you can just put your home on the market without dealing with the problem, that generally is not a great plan either.
Indications of foundation faults or wet crawlspaces scare away nearly every buyer with the exception of the professional property fixers.
Plus, it’s your duty to inform serious house buyers of any critical problem areas with your residence before they buy it.
So it won’t make any sense to not fix the problem first.
In some situations, many homeowners think their house problem is so bad it will require a significant project and plenty of money to repair, but they turn out to be pleasantly surprised that it can get fixed rather quickly.
But a homeowner will not learn for sure until they have it inspected.
