What If I’m Not Sure If I Have a Problem or Not?
It can often be difficult for the typical property owner to tell if you have a genuine problem with your home or not.
Some problems are not easy to recognize and will need a professional contractor to complete an inspection and present their view.
In other cases, the issue is more noticeable.
And troubles might turn up at both old and new properties.

• New gaps around doors, principally exterior doors and garage doors
• Vertical cracks in sheet rock, regularly between a door frame and ceiling
• Bent or sloping floors
• A long crack in a concrete slab floor or foundation
• Doors or windows stick to the frames when you try to open them
• Spaces where a wall and ceiling come together, 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 near your home after a rain
• Separated or cracked wood molding, commonly crown or door molding
• Splits in a solid surface exterior or interior wall

Norman and Moore Concrete Slab Lifting Services
If sections of your cement garage floor, sidewalk or patio has sunk, they can usually have that fixed too.
The process used to lift it back up known as slab jacking or mudjacking.
Mud jacking describes the process when your technicians pump a heavy liquid compound under a sunk slab.
This mud solution is strong enough to gradually force the slab upwards until it reaches the original height.
After your concrete slabs are all the same height again, your sidewalk, porch or driveway will look better and people won’t be tripping and stumbling on the uneven joints any longer.
Why Do These Problems Happen?
Well, I’m not a physical science teacher, but it has something to do with how our soil behaves.
The earth your house sits on changes once in a while. It moves. It shifts.
It will expand or contract based on contact with rain water and temperature changes.
These fluctuations of the earth your home is constructed on may end up applying pressure on even new residences.
While you can’t change the climate where you live, having your house located on a lot which has poor drainage or improper yard grading or your house does not have sound rain gutters can be important factors in whether or not you get a nasty structure situation.
The exact type of soil your house was built on can be a vital contributing variable as well.
Some sorts of soil will swell more than others after they get exposed to water.
In this part of the state, our ground can be absorbent, but it can vary quite a bit from one neighborhood to the next.
Even having a really massive tree up next to your house might be a contributing issue.
The roots of a large tree can go well underneath a building and extract all the moisture from below that home during hot and dry summer months.
This can make that ground too dry. And when it is way too dry, it contracts.
And minute cracks let in moisture and air, and those smaller cracks can become a bit larger each year.
Can I Worry About This Later?
If you worry you could have a situation with your home, if nothing else, it’s best to get an expert to inspect it and learn their opinions.
You shouldn’t just ignore the issue and only hope it magically goes away.
It won’t go away.
Foundation crack repair is a problem you should work on sooner as opposed to later.
Bear in mind, your foundation actually is holding up the entire house.
The walls, floors and roof all depend on it.
If you don’t care for it you might be in a worse situation later.
If you find water around your house fairly frequently, you know that water may lead to a mold problem.
And nobody wants to have a mold situation in their house.
You may be thinking of putting it off, since you are looking at putting your house on the market.
But almost no real estate buyer wants to make a down payment on a home with a significant structure problem or illustrates indications of water around their house new in the past.
Plus, if you know you’ve got a crucial structure or water situation, you’re required to tell the purchaser about what it is.
You don’t want the buyer to come back after you with a complaint after the sale is over.
Don’t just imagine that your condition is too complicated to correct.
And don’t panic that it’s going to cost too much.
An experienced contractor and work crew can repair almost any complication you have.
And the expense might be less than what you were assuming.
