Is This a Problem or Not?
Sometimes a Sunnyvale homeowner has no trouble seeing they have a structure predicament. In many cases, the evidence is just really conspicuous.
In other situations, the property owner doesn’t have a clue they have a problem. The indicators can be too subtle.
And newer houses aren’t safe from these problems either. They can come up no matter what sort of home construction you have or no matter how old your home is.
Be Wary of Any of these Issues:

• Windows or doors stick to their frames when you close or open them
• Water gets in your basement or crawlspace
• Spaces around exterior doors or a garage door and frame
• Irregular or sloped interior floors
• Vertical cracks in sheet rock between the door frame and the ceiling
• Visible separation between exterior walls or your chimney and a wall
• Collections of water near your house after a rain
• Spaces between a wall and the ceiling
• Gaps between a wall and the floor
• Basement is damp or has a musty smell
• Cracking exterior or interior brick walls or mortar
• Separated wood molding, especially crown or door molding
• Floors are weak, warped or uneven
• Cracking solid surface exterior or interior walls

Sunnyvale Basement Waterproofing
If you keep getting a wet basement, our experts can figure out what is allowing rain water to leak into it.
Your Northern California basement waterproofing plan of action might not require any efforts inside your home itself, all the work might occur on the grounds and landscape around the house.
We can develop a strategy to remedy the problem.
Sunnyvale Concrete Slab Lifting Repair
A different service we provide is mudjacking. Mudjacking can often be called slabjacking or mud jacking. This is how we can bump up parts of your cement walkway, veranda or driveway that may have sunk down into the ground over time.
Mudjacking is a procedure where we forcefully push a mud-like or caulk-like product directly below a sunken cement slab. This dense substance collects beneath the slab, stiffens and causes the slab to raise up back to the original height.
Concrete slab lifting can improve the look of walkway segments when one or more part isn’t at the appropriate height. Having them at the right height will also help prevent trips and falls.
Why Does This Situation Happen?
Well, it’s just how our topsoil acts. The earth that lies beneath your house alters occasionally. It shifts and moves.
The ground can get bigger or contract depending on exposure to moisture and temperature.
This continuous expansion and contraction of the ground your house rests on may put tremendous stress on every building.
Even if you can’t change the South Bay weather, having your house built on a lot that has awful drainage or unsuitable grading or your home doesn’t have working rain gutters can be major factors in whether or not you experience a difficult structure circumstance at your house.
The specific type of soil at your property is a big deal as well.
Some varieties of soil will swell more than others will when it gets wet. An absorbent clay soil will take in moisture and then expand. And then later dry up. That isn’t good.
An extra secondary consideration can be the presence of a substantial tree which is way too near to your property. During a hot and dry spell, a big tree’s wide roots might suck all the available moisture from the soil around it. And large roots can also place weight on your building’s structure too.
Such natural stress may give rise to small cracks in your home’s structure. These tiny cracks let in humidness and little bugs, and these small cracks can grow bigger as time goes on.
Is It Okay To Wait on an Inspection?
If you or someone else has a sense that you have an issue at your house, just get it inspected. Then you’ll know whether or not you have a problem and if it needs to be repaired immediately or not.
The inspection is not something you should forget about.
A basement problem won’t improve over time. It will commonly only get worse. You could be able to wait on having the corrective repairs undertaken, but it might be to your advantage to tackle it right now.
And if you often notice water down in your basement, the mixture of moisture and time could lead to mold. And getting mold growing in your home can be a real problem.
It is hard to sell a home that has any signs that signal it could have a structural trouble. Potential buyers get worried they might get strapped with a large repair after they actually move in.
Plus, if you know you’ve got a real property situation, you’re required to inform the buyer about what it is. You do not want the buyer to come back after you with a complaint a few months after the transaction is over.
Avoid getting worried and believing your condition is too big and difficult to repair. Or that it will become too expensive to repair.
An experienced contractor can fix just about any difficulty you have. And the final cost could be lower than what you are anticipating.
