How Do I Know if My Home Has a Problem?
At times a Los Angeles homeowner can tell they have a structure disorder.
In some circumstances, the evidence is really clear.
Other times the signs are hard to find.
These problems can show up in all kinds of different houses, from new to old and from inexpensive houses to expensive ones.
Signals To Stay On the Watch For:
• Cracking in exterior or interior brick walls, solid surface walls or mortar
• Splits in drywall between a door frame and the ceiling
• New gaps around doors and their frames, often external doors and garage doors
• Sloping or uneven floors
• Separations or space between exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
• Separating or cracked interior molding, often crown or door molding
• Big cracks in a concrete foundation or basement floor
• Water, dampness or a bad smell in your basement
• Gaps between a ceiling and a wall or ceiling and floor
• Doors or windows that shut hard or stick to their frames when you open them
• Floors are saggy, weak or a floor tile has become loose or broken
• Water pools close to your house after a rain or in your crawlspace
Can My Problem Even Be Repaired?
Important house structure situations, like raising a large house, is a major project, but these projects can be accomplished.
These jobs get finished. You simply need to find the best company to make it happen for you.
A complex house structure project will require a trained contractor, with the right team and equipment in order to get it done properly.
Getting under a house, elevating it up and making it level without disturbing the structural strength of the building is not for the inexperienced contractor.

Mid City Concrete Slab Jacking Lifting Service
If you have a portion of your cement patio, sidewalk or garage which has sunken over the years, they can normally get that raised back in place.
The job technique is known as either slab jacking or mud jacking.
(Wet cement can be referred to as “mud” in this business.)
The process of slab jacking is straightforward but effective.
A heavy liquid compound is forced directly below the concrete that has sunk.
This mixture expands to fill any empty cavity and then starts to lift up the slab.
Once the slab has risen to the proper height, the work is over.
In addition to seeking a nicer appearance, the primary reason property owners call for slab jacking is that having connecting mismatched cement sections can lead to trips, accidents and stubbed toes.
And many projects are done in only a few hours.
Why Does This Happen?
The soil beneath your home and driveway gradually moves a tiny bit.
It can shrink or swell a little because of moisture content and heat or cold.
This movement can put stress on whatever structure is above it.
Most properties can deal with a little of this action, but too much activity, too often, can stress even a well-built home.
One of the secrets to keeping a building structure secure is to keep water away from nearby and underneath the building.
First, any building that rests on a properly graded lot will force rainwater to roll away from the house and not towards it.
A house equipped with reliable gutters and possibly another water flow technique such as a French drain system, will also be in a stronger position to not encounter unwanted water under or around it.
The exact variety of soil your home was built on is a highly important contributing factor as well.
Some types of soil (especially clay soil) will swell more than others after they get exposed to moisture.
An additional element that could be a factor is the existence of a major tree that is way too close to your house.
During a long dry and hot period, a big tree’s roots may extract all the moisture from the dirt around it, making the soil too dry and compacted.
And thick, long roots might even apply pressure on a foundation too.
These kinds of natural stress can result in the introduction of little cracks in your home’s basement.
These smaller cracks will invite moisture, air and even little insects, and then those tiny cracks will get larger as time goes on.
Can I Do This Later Instead of Now?
If you’ve got some problem with your house which is concerning you, just get a professional to at least take a look at it.
It could be that you don’t actually need to have it repaired.
You might have been worried for no reason.
But you are better off having it inspected and learning a professional opinion.
Cracking and other difficulties with your concrete are not going to improve over time.
It is almost always advisable to have the problem fixed as soon as you can.
Your whole house depends on its basement foundation, it deserves to be taken care of.
Any time moisture repeatedly gets into a basement it may cause headaches like mold.
Mold can get really serious.
And it will get worse each year.
If you’re considering just selling your house and not dealing with it, there are only a few potential buyers who would consider a property that has a structural challenge or one that has a history of water in its basement.
And home sellers have to divulge all known significant physical troubles with their home or the seller might be in trouble in the future.
Look, property owners often feel that their house situation is likely to be almost impossible to take care of, but, in most cases, an experienced southern California contractor can get the situation fixed.
Without a doubt, the procedure might be pretty complex, but it can usually be done.
