When Do I Know if My Home Has a Problem?
Sometimes homeowners cannot see they have a structure condition; In other instances, the evidence is really clear.
And plenty of cases are someplace in the middle.
For instance, the homeowner sees a crack, a slightly uneven wall or a floor that is somewhat sloped.
But there usually isn’t sufficient evidence for the homeowner to develop their own determination.
That’s where the skills of a foundation inspector comes into play.
12 Clues to Be Aware Of:
• Cracking in an exterior or interior brick wall or mortar
• New gaps surrounding doors, especially outside doors and garage doors
• Vertical cracks in sheet rock, frequently between a door frame and the ceiling
• Irregular or sloped floors
• A large crack in a cement floor or foundation
• Windows or doors that stick to their frames when you try and open them
• Gaps where a wall and ceiling meet, or where a wall and floor come together
• Gaps or any separation between two exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• A wet crawl space or collection of water near your house after a rain
• Separated or cracking wood molding, typically crown or door molding
• Cracking in a solid surface exterior or interior wall
• Floors are irregular, sagging or weakened, or tiles have become loose.
Can This Problem Get Corrected?
Homeowners frequently view their home and think their situation is so bad, it’s going to end up being an expensive and extremely challenging project to get finished.
But most of these faults can get fixed.
Nonetheless, a lot of these home repairs will need properly trained and seasoned foundation repair contractors and workers, working with special gear, to carry out a home leveling, mend a settling house structure, or successfully accomplish any other serious structural issue.
Waterproofing Crawl Spaces
When an area under your building seems wet once in a while, these waterproofing specialists will determine what is causing rain water to get into it.
To be able to waterproof your home, they might work down around your house, focus just on the ground and yard close to your residence, or they work on a blend of the two.
Sometimes, simply regrading the grounds, putting in gutters and putting in an outside drain pipe may remedy the problem without having to work on the actual basement walls at all.
Peoria Concrete Slab Lifting Repair
If parts of your cement patio or front walk has sunk or become not level, they can repair that too.
They utilize a method called mudjacking (often known as slab jacking).
Mud jacking is when someone slowly pushes a caulk-like solution below a low cement slab.
After this heavy liquid gathers under the slab, it hardens and pushes the slab to lift up to the height you need it to be.
Often property owners want mudjacking done primarily in order to raise the appearance of their house or property, but cement slab lifting can reduce accidents and trips from having uneven sections and it may aid with other concerns, such as poor drainage, also.
Nearly all jobs are completed in one morning or afternoon.
Why Is This Problem Happening to Me?
Well, around and beneath your home, the ground can shift somewhat at times.
Moisture, temperature changes and a few other slight factors could cause the soil to contract or swell.
This action, although it might be tiny, can affect whatever is on top of it, from a structure to a driveway or any other solid object.
Even if you can’t change the weather here in Arizona, having your house sitting on a lot that has inadequate drainage and improper grading could be major factors in whether or not you develop a bad problem at your residence.
Merely having sensible rain gutters can really help keep excess water away from your home. It’s a simple repair that may have a big effect.
The type of soil your home is built on may be a primary factor as well.
Some types of soil swell more than others do when they get exposed to water.
Luckily, in some areas of Arizona, the dirt is just considered mildly absorbent, it does not swell as much as it will in a few other states of the country. But soil characteristics can change from one neighborhood to the next.
Even something as outwardly harmless as having a sizable tree next to your residence might result one day in a predicament.
The long-ranging roots of a big tree might expand under a building, push up against the concrete and even draw too much water from the soil during our warm, dry summer seasons, making the earth under the house too dry.
Different kinds of natural stress can bring about small-scale cracking in your foundation letting in air, moisture and tiny insects, and tiny cracks can grow bigger every year.
Is It Alright To Wait on an Inspection?
In case you have some issue with your property which is concerning you, you should get a professional to at least take a look at it.
It might be you don’t even have to have it worked on.
You might have been getting worried without any reason.
But you’re better off getting it inspected and learning a professional opinion.
It is normal to hope that this situation somehow goes away all on its own, but a concrete crack or cement foundation fault isn’t going to fix itself.
It won’t just heal all by itself.
It’s almost always safer to solve the matter now rather than later.
When your building has moisture continually seeping into it, complaints can vary from a musty smell to a mold problem.
And every year these symptoms will probably just get worse.
If you are interested in trying to sell your home within the next few years, just realize that hardly any home shopper wants to purchase a home that has a structural concern or shows a history of rain water damage anywhere.
And also, it is your responsibility to inform serious home buyers of any major problem areas with your home before they buy it.
So it doesn’t make any sense not to get your situation fixed first.
Avoid getting worried into believing your problem is too difficult to correct. Or it will get too costly to fix.

And your final cost may be less than what you are anticipating.
