Why Is This Happening to My Central Irvine Property?
Well, it’s just the science of our soil.
The soil underneath your house shifts and moves. It expands and contracts determined by exposure to water and temperature. This expansion and contraction of the soil places great stress on even a good home.
Although you cannot change the weather or the scientific properties of our ground around here, constructing a house that sits on a lot with subpar drainage or insufficient grading could become leading elements in whether or not your home develops a nasty foundation situation.
Additionally, simply having proper rain gutters can help keep excess water from accumulating near your house.
It is a simple fix that will have a long-lasting effect.
Another major element in determining potential structure complications is the physical makeup of the ground the house rests on.
There are certain sorts of soil which catch more moisture than other soil types do.
In most of this area, we are pretty fortunate, our soil makeup is considered just mildly absorbent. Problems aren’t as common here as they are in some other parts of the country.
An alternative trigger for property problems that some homeowners dismiss is having a major tree that is too too close to your property.
This could cause a challenge if the tree’s roots snake under the home and put tension against your slab, water and sewer pipes.
In some rare situations, the long roots of a big tree that’s too close to a house can also extract moisture out from the soil beneath the building, which makes it too dry during our extended dry Summer weeks.
Natural environmental stress can help to induce slight cracks to start in your home’s structure.
These small cracks allow in humidity and other things.
And these minor cracks might grow bigger every year.
I Don’t Want to Deal With This Right Now
If you worry you may be noticing a problem, you should at least get it checked.
Maybe the issue you’re worried about isn’t anything major.
But when you have it looked at, at least you will know for certain.
You shouldn’t simply ignore the problem and hope that it fades away.
These kind of issues won’t just go away.
Foundation crack repair is a situation you should tackle sooner and not later.
Don’t forget, your foundation physically supports your complete home. The floors and walls depend on it.
Unless you take care of it you may be in a more difficult situation later.
Water which gets under a house may cause problems over time like mildew and mold.
A mold problem isn’t good. And it won’t ever improve on its own. It just gets worse.
