Does Your House Have a Problem?
Look, it can be difficult to tell if you have a serious condition or not.
For example, certain basement floor cracks don’t indicate much; in other cases, they could indicate something major is happening. In other cases, like when you get rain water in your basement, it’s very distinct you have a problem that requires treatment.
Foundation Trouble Symptoms To Look For
• Cracking in sheet rock, usually above a door frame
• Gaps right around interior doors, external doors or garage doors
• Significant cracks in a concrete foundation or basement cement floor
• Uneven or sloped interior floors
• Gaps or any separation between exterior walls or a wall and chimney
• Cracking in interior or exterior walls
• Doors or windows that close too hard or stick to their frames
• Rain water gets into your basement from time to time
• Gaps between an interior wall and its ceiling or a wall and the floor
• A damp crawlspace or strange collections of water near your house after rain
• Separated or cracked interior molding, mainly crown or door molding
• Your basement seems musty, damp and humid
• Floors appear weak, saggy, or sloping
• Cracking in exterior or interior brick walls or their mortar
Can My Problem Be Repaired?
Homeowners sometimes assume their house situation is going to be close to impossible to correct, but, in fact, most issues can get resolved.
Tricky repair projects need a reliable building contractor and work crew. They also require the right tools and gear.
They have both the experience and tools to get your job done correctly.
Local Crawlspace Waterproofing Contractor
If you have a wet basement once or twice a year, a waterproofing technician can get to the bottom of your issue and determine why rain water is dripping into it.
In order to waterproof your house, they might do some work in your basement, focus solely on the soil and landscaping close to your property, or perhaps they work on a mix of each.
In some cases, simply regrading the grounds, installing rain gutters and/or investing in an outside drain pipe might remedy the issue without having to tackle your basement walls at all.
Sinking Concrete Slab Lifting in Woodward Park or Gordon Area
Another service they offer is cement slab raising. Some people call this procedure mud jacking or slab jacking.
If you’ve got a portion of your concrete drive way, walkway or patio that has sunk into the soil so it is no longer the same height as the other sections, they can raise it back up.
Mudjacking describes a procedure where they force a mud-like mixture under the sunken section of the slab. This heavy mud collects below the cement slab and pushes the slab up higher to its intended height.
As soon as the mud hardens, your concrete is level again. It will eliminate accidental trips.
Your pathway, patio or garage will look a lot better after the parts are the same level, and nobody is going to be tripping on the uneven edges anymore either.
Why Do These Issues Happen?
Well, it is simply the science of the soil.
The soil beneath your house shifts and changes. It expands and contracts depending on exposure to water and temperature.
This expansion and contraction of the ground adds tremendous stress on even a well-constructed house.
Even while you can’t change our Central Valley weather, having your house put together on a lot which has poor drainage and inappropriate grading or neglecting to install good rain gutters can be big causes in whether or not your house develops a structure or water issue.
Only a few property owners have challenges in these areas; many others do not. One of the best ways to suppress house foundation problems is to eliminate water from settling around and under the house.
The kind of soil your home was built on can be a leading variable too. Particular sorts of clay soil swell more than others do when they get exposed to moisture. These clay soils are fairly common here in the Central Valley.
Another predictor of structure troubles is having a large tree that is way too near to your home. This can lead to problems when its roots extend underneath the home and put pressure on water and sewer lines and your cement slab.
Different kinds of natural stress can lead to smallish cracks in your structure bringing in air, moisture and little bugs, and slight cracks can grow bigger as time goes on.
Is It Okay To Not Do an Inspection?
If you or a friend has a sense that you might have a situation with your home, just call and have it checked out. Then you’ll know whether or not you have a problem and if it has to be remedied right now or not.
The examination itself is not something you should wait on.
You might just hope your home issue just disappears on its own, but it won’t do that. It will not improve over time all by itself.
Small cracks grow up to become larger cracks. A smallish problem is only going to only get worse.
And if you are finding rain water down in your basement on a somewhat regular basis, it could end up in mold. And no property owner wants a mold and mildew situation in their house.
Thinking that you could try to sell your home rather than actually doing any necessary repairs usually is not the finest idea either. Not many buyers have an interest in a home that has a sign of water in the basement or visible structure problems.
Additionally, it is the seller’s obligation to tell a house buyer of any severe physical home defect. You won’t want to find yourself in a predicament of saying that you understood there was a serious fault, but you didn’t get it fixed.
If you are worried about your circumstance, it’s best to at least realize if you really have a problem or not. Some situations might appear to the homeowner to be practically very hard to solve.
But a qualified professional can usually fix them. Sure, the repair itself may involve a challenging task, but they will get done. Try to not worry too much until you have all the details.
