Learn How to Diagnose Foundation Repair
Foundation damage isn’t hard to spot. The key is acting when you first notice the problem. Foundation damage results in a gradual shift in the location of the foundation, relative to the ground around it. And it grows worse over time, so you’ll want to keep an eye on your house. Make sure its bones are strong and healthy by keeping a lookout for these five common signs:
Cracks and fractures are not a good sign, and they can appear anywhere. Get into the habit of inspecting the brick or stone exterior around your home when you cut the grass. If you see cracks, call us. Additionally, any cracks in the walls or floors in your home could indicate a problem.
Settling and Sinking
It might be hard to tell, but if one side of your house seems to be lower than it used to be, you might have foundation damage. Even if you’re uncertain, there’s no harm in contacting Storm Waterproofing for a free estimate.
Most foundations use the slab technique, meaning the house sits on a large concrete slate. If your foundation is moving up, there’s a possibility your home is experiencing the opposite of settling.
Sometimes the problem is merely a warped frame. However, if multiple doors in your house stick, then there could be an issue with the foundation. That’s because as the house settles, the frames do not compensate, resulting in doors that no longer fit.
Look at your windows and doors. Are there gaps around the frames where there used to be none? If there are, then it would be wise to contact Storm Waterproofing. We can visit your home and provide a free estimate. If we find foundation damage, you will receive an accurate quote.
