Should I Get a Professional Inspection?

Look, in many cases, it can be hard to know if you have a real problem or not.

For example, certain basement concrete floor cracks are typical and ordinary; other times, they might indicate a problem.

In other scenarios, like when you have rain water in your basement whenever it rains, it’s quite obvious you have yourself a problem that needs solving.

Some Signs To Be Watching For:

• Gaps around an interior door, exterior door or garage door
• Exterior or interior brick walls or their mortar have cracks
• Big cracks in a concrete foundation or cement basement floor
• Cracking going up and down in drywall, even if they aren’t that long
• Pitched or spongy interior floors
• Separation between exterior walls or wall and chimney
• Windows or doors are closing hard and sticking to their frames
• Cracking in any exterior walls
• Water gets into your basement once in a while
• A soggy crawlspace or puddles of water near your home after it rains
• Separation or cracking in interior wood molding
• Gaps between walls and ceiling or the walls and floor
• Your basement always seems humid and damp

Are These Problems Hard To Fix?

A property owner may assume that some foundation faults will be very difficult to solve, but, in fact, almost all can be repaired by a professional in this field.

These types of home repairs call for experienced and qualified foundation repair contractors and crews, along with a truck filled with custom equipment, to attempt a house leveling or remedy a sunken building predicament. But some repairs are less difficult. We will let you know what your situation is.

Waterproofing Basements Near Me in San Jose

If you are getting water down in your basement once in a while, we can figure out why it’s happening and come up with a strategy on how to stop it from happening in the future.

Property owners often worry that making their basement waterproof is going to call for work on the basement walls, and for people with finished basements, that could be a problem.

But many of our South Bay basement waterproofing remedies will not involve any work on the walls themselves, but just on the land surrounding the home.

After we perform our evaluation, we will come up with a plan to cure the matter.

San Jose Area Slab Jacking Services

When a part of your cement garage floor, sidewalk or courtyard has sunk, we can typically have that corrected too. The method we use to get it done known as slab jacking or mud jacking.

Mudjacking is a procedure of forcefully injecting a heavy substance underneath a sunken cement slab which, after it has filled up all the spaces under the concrete, makes the slab to raise up.

Concrete slab lifting improves the look of walkways and sidewalks by getting each section the same height and also helps to stop accidental trips.

How Does This Problem Occur?

The earth under your house and driveway slowly moves a tiny bit. It can compress or increase somewhat thanks to moisture content and temperature. Illustration of a single family home with growing structure problems

This movement can bring stress on whatever construction is above it. Most buildings are equipped for some of this activity, but excessive activity, too often, can stress even a solid, well-built structure.

Even though you can’t control the elements or the physical makeup of soil, there are things you can do.

A couple of helpful steps to take include making sure the lot where your home is situated is correctly graded and it has an appropriate drainage plan and you have hooked up a decent gutter system to move that rain water away from your home.

The makeup of the earth your home was built on can be a leading issue as well.

Some kinds of heavy clay soil will swell more than others do when in contact with water.

A different cause of troubles is having a big tree too close to your home. This could cause problems when the roots grow underneath the house and put pressure on water and sewer pipes and your slab.

Different kinds of natural forces can cause minor cracks in your foundation letting in air, moisture and tiny insects, and small cracks might get bigger as time goes on.

Can’t I Do This Some Other Time?

If you worry you may be having a situation, make an appointment to have it checked. Maybe the condition you’re anxious about isn’t anything big.

But once you get it inspected, at least you will know for sure.

You shouldn’t simply dismiss your situation and hope that it goes away. It will not simply go away.

Basement foundation crack repair is a problem a homeowner should focus on sooner instead of later on.

Your foundation is supporting the entire building. The walls, floors, and even the roof depend on it. Should you have problems, you should deal with it today so that it doesn’t develop into a worse predicament later.

And if you are noticing outside water inside your basement on a pretty consistent basis, it may result in mold. And no property owner wants a mold condition in their house.

If you’re contemplating not actually fixing your home and then just selling it fast, house buyers typically don’t want to make a down payment on a property which shows any indication of rain water being in the basement or a serious foundation concern.

And besides, since you need to inform any truly serious buyer of any substantial issue with your house before they purchase it from you, it is best to take care of the trouble first.

You shouldn’t keep worrying about it before your inspection and without knowing the details.

The majority of situations that appear too difficult to take care of through the property owner’s eyes can usually get corrected. The fix might require a tricky series of steps, but they can get completed.
