Do I Have a Problem?
It’s not always easy to know if you’ve got a real problem with your home or not.
Some conditions are subtle and need a seasoned contractor to offer an opinion.
Other difficulties are often more transparent.
And situations will show up at both old and new houses.
Typical Indicators Your House Has a Problem:
• Cracking in interior or exterior brick walls, solid surface walls or mortar
• Splits in drywall between a door frame and the ceiling
• New gaps around doors, commonly external doors and garage doors
• Pitched or uneven floors
• Separation or spaces between exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
• Separated or cracked interior molding, typically crown or door molding
• Bad-looking cracks in a cement foundation or floor
• Water, dampness or a bad smell down under your house
• Gaps between a ceiling and a wall or ceiling and floor
• Windows or doors that close hard or stick to their frames when you open them
• Floors are sagging, warped or a floor tile has become loose or broken
• Water pools near your home after a rain or in your crawlspace
How Can This Problem Even Be Fixed?
A homeowner will presume their house situation will be nearly impossible to correct, but, in reality, most problems can be repaired.
These kind of home improvements are complicated.
They require a skilled and experienced foundation repair contractor and crew, backed up with special gear, to modify and correct a sunken home foundation, conduct a home leveling or other sizable structure procedure.
Rancho Cucamonga Crawlspace Waterproofing Contractor
If you’re putting up with a wet crawlspace, they have a specialist who can determine why that water is getting in.
Your waterproofing process might not even involve any sort of focus on the interior of the building itself.
Many times all of the needed labor is spent just on the grounds and landscape grading surrounding your home.
Whatever your house situation is, they can come up with the perfect plan to cure it.
Rancho Cucamonga Concrete Lifting Service
If a part of your cement pavement, courtyard or patio has sunk below where it’s supposed to be, they will get that changed.
The method they use is termed slab jacking.
(They sometimes call it mudjacking because they like to refer to wet concrete as mud.)
To be able to raise your slab back to the height where it previously was, they pump a heavy liquid material underneath your sunken slab.
This mud fills in the vacant gaps, solidifies and drives your concrete back up to the proper height.
Sometimes a property owner wants slab jacking performed primarily in an attempt to improve the look of their home and property, but concrete slab raising can lower accidental trips and stumbles which result from walking on uneven pavement segments.
And almost all of these jobs are finished in one morning or day.
Why Is This Happening to My SoCal Property?
Well, it’s simply the way our soil acts.
The ground that lies directly below your house routinely alters, shifts and moves a little. It stretches and shrinks based on contact with water and changes in temperature.
This steady expanding and contracting of the ground sets stress on even a well-built home.
Most homeowners will not suffer from significant structure or rain water difficulties, but some do.
There are a couple of tasks a homeowner can do to help prevent problems.
First, they can make sure the lot their home is built on is properly graded to lead rain water away from their house.
And they should make sure they have gutters that collects all the rain that falls on their house and move it away from their home too.
The specific physical makeup of soil your home was constructed on is also a leading reason as well.
Some varieties of soil will swell up more than others will when they get wet.
In many parts of western California, the soil characteristics are considered only mildly absorbent. In many neighborhoods, the soil doesn’t absorb as much water or swell up as much as some soil will in a few other parts of the country.
Another origin of property ailments is a large tree growing close to your house.
This can cause problems as the roots extend underneath the residence and put pressure on sewer and water pipes and maybe your slab too.
The extensive roots from a major tree right next to your home can also pull all the moisture away from the ground underneath your structure, rendering it too dried out during our Summertime dry season.
All these types of natural pressure may play a role in developing small-scale cracks with your house’s structure.
These modest cracks allow in moisture and small insects, and those small cracks might get bigger every year.
Can I Wait on This?
If you feel there’s a problem at your home, make sure you at least call to have it checked out.
It really isn’t something you should put off.
After having it checked, you’ll at least realize what you are working with.
You should not merely ignore it and hope that it goes away. It won’t go away.
Foundation crack repair is a problem you should work on sooner instead of later.
Your foundation supports your whole house.
The floors, walls, and roof rely on it. If you don’t look after it you may find yourself in a serious circumstance later on.
If moisture drips under a home it will prompt conditions including mold growth.
Mold could get serious. And it can grow worse over time.
Some homeowners hope to put repairs and maintenance off since they believe they will be moving in a little while.
But it’s not easy to sell a house with signs that might indicate a foundation problem. Potential buyers are scared of getting stuck with a significant repair right after they move in.
As a house seller, you have to reveal to the buyer any significant troubles with your property or you might get in trouble later.
So you should not just ignore the structure problem and leave it up to the next guy.
In certain situations, many homeowners assume their house problem is so bad it will need a big project and a lot of money to fix, but they often end up being surprised that it can be repaired fairly quickly.
But the property owner will not know until they get it checked out.
