How Do I Know For Certain I Have a Problem?
It can be challenging for the average homeowner to know if you have a serious problem with their Bay Area home or not.
Some matters are not easy to recognize and will need a skilled contractor to do an inspection and deliver their opinion. Other times, the problem is more detectable.
And complications can turn up at both new and old properties.

• Separated or cracked interior molding (usually door or crown molding)
• Cracks around exterior doors or the garage door and its frame
• Floors are irregular, weak or beginning to warp
• Doors or windows which stick to their frames
• Cracking in any solid surface wall, brick wall or mortar
• Pitched or sloped floors
• Up and down cracking in the sheet rock between a door frame and ceiling
• Separations between two exterior walls or a wall and the chimney
• Major cracks in a basement floor or concrete foundation
• New spaces between your wall and ceiling or your wall and floor
• Your basement consistently smells musty or is damp
• Collections of water near your house after rains
This Looks Like a Hard Problem to Fix – Is It?

But these house fixes require experienced and trained foundation repair contractors and teams, utilizing expert equipment, to modify and fix a sinking house structure, execute a home stabilizing or other serious structure issue.

South Fremont Concrete Slab Jacking Lifting Service
If a section of your concrete terrace, front walk or driveway has sunken over the years, they will generally fix that too.
The technique used is called mud jacking (many companies call it slab jacking).
The procedure of slab jacking is simple but practical. A thick mud-like substance is forced directly under the concrete that has sunken. The material spreads out to occupy any empty cavity and starts to lift up the slab. Once the slab has risen to the proper height, the process is over.
Concrete lifting increases the appearance of walkways and sidewalks by getting each section level and also helps prevent accidental trips.
How Do These Issues Happen?
Well, it’s just the way our topsoil acts. The earth underneath your house alters sometimes. It shifts and moves a little. The ground will expand or contract according to exposure to water and temperature.
This continuous expanding and contracting of the ground your house rests on might put tremendous stress on every house, new or old.
Most homeowners don’t encounter significant foundation or water difficulties, but a few do. There are a few things a property owner can do to help avert troubles.
First they can make sure the yard their home is built on is correctly graded to move rain water away from their house. And they should make sure they have gutters that collects all the rain that lands on their home and move it away from their house too.
The specific style of soil your house was constructed on can be a real detail too. Some categories of soil will swell and enlarge more than other varieties after they get exposed to water.
However, around the East Bay, the soil is classified as only somewhat absorbent, it doesn’t absorb as much rain water or swell as much as some varieties of soils will over in other areas of the country.
One additional origin of structure issues is having a large tree growing too close to your house. This can lead to issues if the roots develop beneath the home and apply stress on sewer and water pipes and maybe your structure. The long roots of a massive tree too near your property may also pull all the moisture away from the ground under your structure, making it too dried up during our Summertime dry season.
Environment and constant physical forces may lead to miniature cracks in your home’s structure. These minor cracks let in moisture and air, and several of those very small splits develop into big cracks, and some of these big cracks change into major problem cracks.
Do I Really Need to Have My House Inspected?
If you believe your Tri-City property has a scenario, make sure you get it inspected. And if there is a problem, maybe you should get it fixed. This isn’t something you should postpone.
It’s natural to hope that the condition simply fades away, but concrete cracks and faults will not fix themselves. They won’t get better over time. It’s always advisable to address the issue now instead of later.
If rain water steadily seeps into a basement, it can lead to predicaments through the years as mold and mildew. And it will not get any better over time either.
Selling your home without doing any repairs often isn’t a good idea either. Few home buyers will be serious about a home that shows any signs of moisture in the basement or foundation problems.
Additionally, it is a house seller’s responsibility to tell a potential buyer of any substantial physical house defect. You don’t want to be in a predicament of having to say that you understood there was a serious fault, but you didn’t have it repaired.
Try to relax, a lot of scenarios that a homeowner might imagine is too tough to repair can usually be fixed. The repair may involve a tricky and sometimes rough process, however it can get done.
