Does My SoCal Home Have a Problem?

In some circumstances, a homeowner is aware right away they have a structure problem. They can see the warning signs. It’s obvious.

Yet in other cases, it can be hard to see the warning signs.

While many troubles occur at homes that have been around for some time, issues might arise at just about all kinds of properties, from old to fairly new and from basic houses to expensive estates.

Can My Issue Get Fixed?

Significant home structure situations, such as raising a large house, is a major project, but these jobs can be accomplished.

You just have to choose the best California company to make it happen for you.

Certainly, these kinds of house repairs require a trained foundation repair contractor and crew, working with the right equipment, to take care of a sunken home foundation, start a building leveling or other substantial structure issue.

Waterproofing a Basement in Sun Valley or Shadow Hills

If your basement gets water in it following a heavy rain, they’ll stop it. They can learn why rain water is leaking in and figure out how to prevent it.

No homeowner has to put up with a damp basement.

To be able to waterproof your home, they might work inside your basement, focus just on the ground and landscape close to your home, or maybe they work on a blend of each.

Many times, just regrading the grounds, installing gutters and investing in an outside drain may cure the problem without having to tackle your basement walls at all.

Sun Valley and Sunland Concrete Mudjacking Services

If sections of your concrete front walk, patio or courtyard has sunken through the years, they can fix that too. The process is known as mudjacking (often called slab jacking).

Mudjacking is a process of vigorously pressing a thick caulk substance under the sunken slab. This mixture oozes into every empty space beneath the concrete and then makes the cement slab to lift up.

Slab lifting enhances the appearance of low walkway segments by getting them all level again. This also helps prevent accidental trips, stumbles and falls on your property.

How Do These Issues Happen?

Even though they can’t see it take place, the dirt shifts somewhat with time. It will contract and expand.

This occurs mostly because of the effects of moisture and temperature changes. Moving soil might help a house to slightly sink - a drawing

And even if this activity is really small and gradual, these types of contraction and expanding actions can apply pressure on whatever structure sits on top of (or in) that ground. Over time, this prolonged tension could affect the condition of just about any kind of connected structure.

Although you can’t influence the physics of the soil, there are a couple things you can do.

First, if your house is situated on a lot which has bad drainage or has unsuitable grading, these factors might lead to having too much water resting around the base of a home.

Second, simply having adequate rain gutters can help move excess water away from your house. Gutters are a relatively inexpensive fix that can deliver a good result.

One of the primary elements which impact a house is the absorbency of the dirt it sits on.

Soil which will absorb and retain lots of moisture will usually expand more than soil which doesn’t hold moisture well. Certain areas in California do have these clay-rich, absorbent soils.

Just having a really hefty tree close to your house could be a factor. A broad tree’s roots can reach well below a house and remove moisture from beneath the house during our hot summer months. This could make the ground too dry and force it to contract.

At some point, you might develop minor cracks around the structure of your house. These minor cracks allow in air and moisture, and then those slight cracks can grow a little bigger every year.

Is It Okay To Not Schedule an Inspection?

If you’re sure you have some issue at your house, you should still at least get it examined. A checkup is not something you should put off.

A homeowner shouldn’t merely ignore the situation and only hope it disappears. It won’t go away on its own.

Foundation crack repair is something you should take care of soon rather than later on.

Bear in mind, your basement foundation physically is supporting the complete house. The roof, floors and walls all depend on it. If you forget to care for it you could end up in a serious place later on.

When you’ve got even a little bit of water slowly leaking into your basement, it can cause complications like mold. And mold growth will just worsen over time too.

If you are considering putting your house up for sale, no real estate buyer wants to buy a house which had almost any type of structural situation or has telltale signals of past water damage in the basement.

And also, it’s the home seller’s obligation to tell a buyer about the major home issues. You don’t want to have to say that you know you have a bad situation, but you did not get it corrected.

Try to not needlessly worry about it without knowing the details.

Lots of cases that appear far too complicated to deal with through the property owner’s eyes might actually be fixed. The repair might call for a complex and often difficult combination of steps, but the repairs can be carried out.
