Structural Foundation Repair
Many homeowners are unaware of structural foundation problems that are affecting their home. Typically, a homeowner does not become aware of the problem until the symptoms begin to affect main floor and upstairs living environment. The tendency is to treat the symptoms without rooting out the cause of the problem. Of course, this leads to remedies and patches that create a much more expensive repair later. It is important to know the signs of structural foundation failure.
Which foundation problem are you seeing?
Foundation wall cracks are offset Basement floor is cracked or uneven Basement walls are leaning or bowed Doors or windows don't function properly Cracking of walls or ceilings Gaps under baseboards Floors are uneven or slanting Cracked brickwork or caulking Concrete next to the foundation has sunk Chimney is pulling away from the house
Any one of these symptoms can occur for reasons other than structural foundation issues, however, it is a good idea to have your foundation checked by a trained consultant who can identify the underlying problem.
A structural problem can only get worse and will lead to major repairs such as foundation repair or replacement, broken utility lines, drywall replacement and more.
