Your Guide to Foundation Repair
When it comes to your home, having a solid foundation is the most important aspect of the house in regards to safety and value.
Whether you have owned a home for years, or you are looking to sell your current property or buy a new one, having a solid and strong home foundation is essential for maintaining the structural integrity and the value of the home.
When it comes to foundation repair, one of the earliest signs are visible cracks in and around the property. These can be cracks in the foundation, cracks in the flooring, and/or cracks in the interior and exterior walls. It’s important to examine these cracks for deepness, as the deeper the crack appears to be the higher the chance this could be a sign that the foundation has shifted.
Another area to check around your home are the doors and windows. Making sure all doors and windows open and close correctly, without sticking, can help you spot any issues with the foundation early on. Doors and windows that stick when you open or close them are often signs of foundation degradation, shifting, or settling.
When foundation damage is caught early on, the costs are relatively low. The cost varies depending on the type of equipment needed for the repairs, if the damage is both inside and outside, the type of soil beneath the home, and whether the property slopes toward the house.
Oftentimes, homeowners like to tackle home issues themselves … but when it comes to foundation repair this should never be a DIY project.
Foundation repair should be done by a qualified foundation expert, since typically city permits are required and engineers need to be consulted beforehand. Plus, any sort of miscalculation will be extremely costly to repair and dangerous to those who live there.
