Safety Inspector Details the Dangers of Foundation Damage

Cracked or Damaged Foundation Walls Can Compromise Structural Integrity

LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction Inc., (http://julianconstruction.com/), a foundation repair and construction as well as general contractor company, is speaking out on the long and short term effects of foundation damage on a structure. Safety inspection expert Shawn Kyles described some of the common causes of foundation damage, as well as the importance of repairing the damage before more serious problems develop. Mr. Kyles has inspected over 15,000 structures in the course of his work in the construction business.

Mr. Kyles stated: “Homes are built on foundations that support the building’s structure. When a foundation is damaged, the entire house is often affected. Foundation problems can be divided into two categories; existing damage that needs to be addressed, and issues that can eventually lead to foundation trouble.” The full text of his statement, regarding the causes of and long-term effects of foundation damage, can be read here: http://julianconstruction.typepad.com/julian-construction-blog/2012/06/recognizing-the-signs-of-foundation-damage.html

Julian De La Torre, founder and owner of Julian Construction, Inc., stated: “Keeping up the maintenance of a home’s foundation is an important part of home’s maintenance. If a home is regularly inspected it can actually reduce costs overall as problems which could lead to serious damage are then addressed early. A foundation inspection can be scheduled with our company for free, but the foundation repair costs for repairing a collapsed foundation wall can be very expensive.”
