I’m Not Sure I Have a Real Problem
Many times an observant homeowner has no difficulty noticing their house has a structure problem.
In many cases, the evidence is just fairly conspicuous.
In other situations, the homeowner doesn’t have any idea they have any problem.
The indicators are too subtle.
And new homes are not protected from these issues either.
They can come up no matter what type of construction you have or no matter how old your home is.
Evidence To Stay On the Lookout For:
• You see irregular or not level interior floors
• There are spaces right around doors, often an exterior door or garage door
• Several windows or doors stick to the frames when you attempt to open or close them
• There are cracks in external or interior brick walls or their mortar
• There is water in your basement or crawlspace
• You see separating or split interior molding, generally door molding or crown molding
• You think a floor is sagging, bending or uneven, or floor tiles are loose or broken
• There’s a separation between two exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
• You notice a crack in a solid surface exterior or interior wall
• You come across long cracks in your cement basement floor or concrete blocks
• There are cracks between a wall and the ceiling or a wall and the floor
• Your basement feels damp, humid and has that musty smell

Oakville and Mehlville Area Slab Jacking Services
When you notice that a area of your concrete sidewalk, walkway, or garage floor is sunken down, they can normally raise it back up to where it is supposed to be.
This procedure is frequently referred to as either slabjacking or mudjacking.
In order to raise your cement slab back to the height where it initially was, they pressure a thick liquid solution beneath the slab.
This mud flows into the vacant spots, solidifies and pushes your concrete up to the right height.
As soon as your concrete slabs are all back at the same level, your walkway, terrace or driveway will look a lot better and people won’t be tripping and stumbling on the uneven joints any longer.
Why Does This Happen?
Well, it’s just how our soil behaves.
The earth that lies under your home alters periodically.
It changes and moves a little. The earth might spread out and shrink based on contact with moisture and temperature. This sustained expansion and contraction of the ground your home sits on might place substantial stress on every house, new or old.
Some property owners develop troubles in these areas; others do not.
One of the major variables in averting property foundation challenges is how much moisture is around and under the house.
One of the leading variables which will affect the likelihood of this happening is something that the homeowner can’t control.
It’s the absorbency of the soil and ground that the home is constructed on.
Soil that can absorb and soak up a lot of moisture will swell up more than soil that doesn’t retain moisture well.
We are pretty lucky around here, much of the soil under our homes is not too absorbent.
A different somewhat uncommon cause of foundation difficulties is having a large tree way too near your home.
This can cause problems if the roots grow underneath the house and put stress on water and sewer pipes and your cement slab.
Gradually, natural pressures working against your home’s foundation may bring about tiny cracks.
Sometimes small cracks remain small; but sometimes they grow wider.
And these big cracks let in humidity and tiny insects.
And moisture in your basement is never good.
Can’t I Just Wait?
If you have problems at your property, you really should have it checked out pretty soon and fixed if it is called for.
The inspection, at a minimum, isn’t something you should delay.
You may just hope your property situation just disappears on its own, but it won’t.
It will not improve all by itself.
Little cracks grow up to be larger cracks. A smaller problem will still only get worse.
When moisture drips into your basement, it can cause disorders such as mildew and mold.
And it will often only get worse every year.
It isn’t something you should disregard and let the upcoming owner be worried about.
If your house for sale displays any signs that suggests it might have a foundation situation, just about all home buyers will not be interested in it.
Prospective buyers can be worried that your home could need a considerable repair.
As a home seller, it is advisable to disclose to the purchaser any crucial troubles with your property or you may be in trouble later.
So you shouldn’t just ignore your problem and leave it up to the next guy.
Your contractor will develop a strategy to fix your structure problem.
Try not to worry too much.
Even lots of circumstances which seem to a house owner to be too tough to repair can generally be addressed.
Granted, the work might require a complicated and frequently challenging process, but they can get done.
