Not Sure I Have a Real Problem
Sometimes a Rosemead homeowner simply knows there is a structure problem. In some instances, the proof is visible and obvious.
In other situations, the warning signs are too hard to see.
But these complications can show up in plenty of different properties, from inexpensive to expensive houses and from old to new ones.
Problem Symptoms to Watch Out For:
• Cracking in exterior or interior brick walls or mortar
• Splits in drywall between a door frame and ceiling
• New spaces around doors and their frames, particularly exterior doors and garage doors
• Sloping or uneven floors
• Separations or space between exterior walls or one wall and chimney
• Separating or cracked interior molding, frequently crown or door molding
• Bad-looking cracks in a concrete foundation or basement floor
• Water, dampness or a bad smell in your basement
• Gaps between a ceiling and a wall and ceiling and floor
• Windows or doors that shut hard or stick to their frames when you open them
• Floors are saggy, warped or a floor tile has become loose or broken
• Water pools near your house after a rain or in your crawlspace
Are These Issues Hard to Fix?
Substantial house structure issues are very hard to fix, but they can get fixed.
Property owners sometimes guess their dilemma is either not fixable, or it’ll cost a small fortune to solve, however that is not necessarily correct.
A professional contractor can take on this kind of job, but only when they’ve got a skilled lead contractor, good workers and the best tools.
It’s a hard project, but it can get done.
And once it’s finished, your house will be secure and safe again.
Crawlspace Waterproofing Services
If you’re suffering from a wet basement, these specialists can find out what is going on and discover how rain water is able to leak into it.
They might find a waterproofing solution which will correct your moisture issue without having to actually work down in your basement at all.
Maybe they can fix the situation just by doing work outside your building on the rain gutter system, grounds and landscape areas close to your home.
Rosemead Concrete Slab Lifting or Mudjacking
Another service they offer is mudjacking.
Mudjacking is also called slab jacking or mud jacking.
This is the process they employ to raise up parts of your concrete walkway, courtyard or driveway which may have slowly sunken a bit into the ground over the years.
Mudjacking refers to the process where you shoot a thick mud compound below the sunken piece of the slab.
This mud forms underneath the slab and pressures the slab up to its intended level.
When the mud hardens, your concrete is all level again. Stop accidental tripping.
After your pavement, courtyard or driveway slabs are all the same height again, they’re going to look better.
And no one is going to be stumbling on the uneven edges either.
Why Does This Situation Happen?
Well, it’s just the natural properties of the ground our houses are built on.
The ground beneath and around your house frequently transforms, moves a little and adjusts.
It may expand or contract with exposure to rain water and changes in temperature. This ongoing expansion, contracting and motion (no matter how tiny) of the earth can add a stress on a building or other solid structure.
You may not be able to control the weather or the makeup of the soil here around Pasadena, but there are a few variables you can control.
First, your lot needs to be graded so that it flows rain water away from your home.
Second, you’ll need a pretty good gutter system to prevent the rain that lands on your house from accumulating around it.
Another significant element in diagnosing potential foundation difficulties is the natural composition of the earth the house rests on.
Some types of soil capture more moisture than other types of soil do.
There are some areas of California that have these problem clay soils. Many areas are fine; other areas can lead to problems.
Another trigger for structure ailments is having a major tree planted close to your property.
This can lead to problems as the roots grow under the home and put pressure on sewer and water pipes and maybe your slab.
The substantial roots of a significant tree too close to your property can also take too much moisture away from the soil under your building, rendering it too dried out during our Summer dry season.
As time goes by, varied stress conditions on your house may ultimately cause a little cracking or two to occur.
And a small crack can lead to a bigger crack. Big cracks can bring in moisture and it only becomes worse from there.
Can I Bother With This Later?
If you have some issue with your house that’s disturbing you, you should get a professional to at least look into it.
It could be you don’t actually have to have it repaired. You may be getting worried for no reason. But you’re better off getting it examined and finding an expert point of view.
You might wish that your house problem just magically goes away by itself, but it won’t. It won’t go away or improve with time.
Smallish cracks might transform into larger cracks. Minor problems will only get worse.
If you are experiencing rainwater in the basement after it rains a lot, maybe it’s not going to require much effort to repair it. You don’t want mold down in the basement. Mold doesn’t get better over time either.
If you are considering not repairing your house and then just selling it soon, property buyers typically don’t want to place a bid on a property that shows any indication of rain water in the basement or any kind of structure challenge.
And, if you’re hoping to sell your home, you should let any serious buyer know about any substantial problems with your house or you could be in civil trouble down the road.
In some situations, property owners imagine that their problem is so severe it will become a sizable significant project and it will cost them lots of money to take care of.
They sometimes are surprised that it might be fixed quickly.
But a homeowner usually doesn’t know for certain until they have it inspected by a pro.
