Does My Home Really Have a Problem?
In some circumstances, a homeowner is aware right away there is a structure problem.
They can see the signs. It’s obvious.
But in other instances, it’s not easy to see the warning signs.
While many situations occur at houses that have been around for some time, issues might appear at all different kinds of properties, from old to fairly new and from inexpensive houses to expensive estates.
Warning Signs to Watch For:
• Gaps around doors, particularly external doors and garage doors
• Windows or doors that stick to their casings when you try to open them, or close too hard
• Uneven or sloping interior flooring
• Separating or cracked wood molding, mainly door molding or crown molding
• Crevices in interior or exterior brick walls or mortar
• Cracking in solid surface exterior or interior walls
• Up and down splits in sheet rock, usually seen between a door frame and the ceiling
• Significant cracks in a concrete floor or foundation
• Gaps between a wall and its ceiling or a wall and floor
• Gaps or any separation between exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• A damp crawl space or obvious pooling of water close to your home after a rain
• Any part of your home seems damp or humid or possesses a musty smell
• Floors are loose, weak, warped or irregular, or floor tiles are loose or broke
This Problem Sounds Like It Would Be Hard to Fix
Substantial structural troubles are difficult to correct, however they can be done.
Property owners occasionally believe their problem is too hard to fix, or it will cost a lot of money to correct, but that isn’t necessarily true.
However, these home improvements are tricky.
They require a qualified and seasoned foundation repair contractor and staff, backed up with special equipment, to adjust and change a sunken home foundation, carry out a home leveling or other substantial structure operation.
Waterproofing a Crawl Space Area
For people with a wet crawl space, a professional evaluation should discover what is allowing water to get into it.
The appropriate approach to your issue might involve doing some waterproofing activities under your house, taking care of the grading and landscaping around your house, or perhaps a mix of the two. They may be able to fix your situation without needing to have access to your foundation walls at all.
SW Henderson Concrete Slab Lifting
If a section of your concrete terrace, front walk or garage floor has sunken some over the years, they will often repair them too.
The method is known as mudjacking (many contractors refer to it as slab jacking).
Mud jacking describes a process in which they forcefully shoot a dense mud-like substance beneath the lowest cement slab.
This material amasses underneath the slab and forces the slab straight up to its preferred level.
Concrete slab lifting enhances the appearance of walkways and sidewalks by making each section the same height and also helps to stop unexpected trips on uneven segments.
How Does This Issue Happen?
While you can never see it happening, our soil moves slightly over time.
The soil contracts and expands.
This occurs mainly due to contact with water and shifting temperatures.
And even though this motion is small and slow, these contractions and expansion can place pressure on whatever structure is in or on top of the soil.
And over time, this continued pressure can impact the strength of even a very well-built building.
Most property owners will not suffer from dramatic foundation or water troubles, but some do.
There are a couple of things a property owner can do to help avert problems.
First, they can make sure the yard their house is built on is correctly graded to lead water away from their house.
And they can make sure they’ve got rain gutters that collects all the rain that lands on their house and push it away from their home also.
A critical factor beyond your control is the category of soil your home is constructed on.
Not all soil is the same.
Some types of soil will swell when exposed to water much more than other varieties do.
The long roots of a big tree which is too close to your residence can actually extract all the moisture from under your house, making it get too dry during our Summer dry periods.
This extreme dryness can cause the ground to contract too much.
Such ecological pressure can contribute to small cracking in your home’s foundation.
These small cracks permit in humidity, small insects or other organic material, and these small cracks can grow bigger as time goes on.
Can’t I Wait and Do It Later?
When you’re fairly certain you’ve got some kind of challenge with your property, you probably should have it inspected.
An inspection is not something you should wait on.
It’s common to hope that the condition simply disappears, but concrete cracks and splits will not fix themselves. They will not improve on their own over time.
It’s always best to handle the issue now and not later.
When you have moisture under your house, it implies a problem.
Whenever water seeps into your house it may cause conditions like mold.
And those situations just get worse as time goes by.
If you are going to list and sell your home, just remember nobody wants to buy a home that has a structural problem or has obvious indications of moisture seepage.
And, if you are working to sell your house, a seller is required to disclose any known critical problems with the property or they could get in trouble after the sale is completed.
You shouldn’t needlessly worry about it before knowing the details.
The majority of cases that seem way too difficult to deal with in the property owner’s eyes may well get solved.
The repair might require a tricky and sometimes demanding combination of steps, but they can get done.
