How Do I Know For Certain I Have a Problem?
Look, in some cases, it’s not easy to tell if you have a real problem or not.
For instance, some concrete floor cracks are normal and harmless; other times, they might signal a major problem.
In a few other circumstances, like when you have rain water in your basement whenever it rains hard, it’s quite obvious you have yourself a problem that needs resolving.
Common Problem Signals:
• Cracking in brick walls, solid surface walls or mortar
• Cracking in drywall between a door frame and the ceiling
• New gaps around doors and their frames, commonly exterior doors and garage doors
• Pitched or uneven floors
• Separation or space between exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• Separating or cracked interior molding, frequently crown or door molding
• Unusual cracks in a cement foundation or basement floor
• Water, dampness or a bad smell in your basement
• Gaps between your ceiling and a wall and ceiling and floor
• Windows or doors that close hard or stick to their frames when you open them
• Floors are saggy, weak or a floor tile is loose or broken
• Water collects near your house after a rain or in your crawlspace

Basement Waterproofing in Rancho Cordova
If you’re suffering from a wet basement, our specialists will figure out what is going on and discover how water is able to get into it.

Rancho Cordova Concrete Slab Jacking Lifting Service
In case portions of your cement terrace, sidewalk, porch or driveway has sunken a bit over time, we can generally handle that too.
The procedure we use to lift these sunken sections back up is known as either slabjacking or mudjacking.
Slab jacking is a pretty neat process. It involves shooting a thick filler substance down under the section of concrete that has sunken down. The amount of this thick liquid under the concrete steadily forces the slab back up to the height it initially was at.
Concrete raising increases the appearance of walkways by getting each segment the same height and also helps in avoiding unexpected trips.
How Do These Problems Happen?
Well, it’s just how our topsoil acts.
The soil which lies underneath your place changes occasionally. It changes and moves a little. The earth may expand and shrink based on exposure to water and changes in temperature.
This ongoing expanding and contracting of the soil your house rests on may put stress on every house.
Even while you can’t get control of the laws of science, or the weather conditions in your town, having your house built on a residential lot that has poor drainage or poor grading, or your house doesn’t have functioning rain gutters can be big factors in whether or not you get into a negative situation.
One prime element that a property owner can not alter is the physical characteristics of the soil their home sits on.
The physical makeup of soil and ground in different sections of the country may vary substantially.
Some soil varieties will be more absorbent than other varieties. The more absorbent the soil, the more water it holds and the more it will swell up when it gets exposed to water. Big expansion (and then big contraction) is not good.
Having a big old tree too close to your residence might even spark a problem in some situations. Your considerable tree can have big roots which reach underneath your house and puts pressure on your structure, and could even conflict with sewer and water lines.
Now and again, the extensive roots from a major tree could even extract too much moisture from the dirt beneath your structure during our really dry and hot Summers.
As the years pass by, natural environmental pressures acting upon your building basement could lead to a number of modest cracks.
Usually smaller cracks stay smaller sized; other times they get big. And bigger cracks invite in moisture and tiny insects. And moisture and humidity in your basement isn’t a good thing.
I Don’t Want to Deal With This Right Now
Look, when you have some problem with your property and it’s distressing you, get a professional to at least evaluate it. At least you’ll know what your situation is.
It could be that you don’t actually have a serious problem and you won’t need to have it fixed. You might have been getting worried for no reason. You are better off having it looked over and at least understanding just what your issue is.
A cement problem won’t get better over time. They will normally get worse.
You might be in a position to wait on having the corrective repairs started, but it could be to your advantage to correct right now.
When water regularly gets into a basement, it can cause problems like humidity and mold. And the volume of outside water leaking in will generally growth every year.
In case you are planning on just selling your house and not dealing with it, there are very few possible buyers who want to buy a home that has a foundation situation or one that has a history of water in its basement.
And, if you’re planning to sell your house, it’s your duty to let the buyer know about any problems with your property.
Don’t just imagine that your problem is too difficult to do. And don’t worry that it’s going to cost too much. A knowledgeable contractor and work crew can fix just about any complication you have. And the cost could be lower than what you were visualizing.
