Helpful Tips from Home Improvement Expert, Lou Manfredini
I hear it all the time; “My interior door won’t stay open”. “There’s a crack above a window or in the ceiling that I keep patching and it keeps opening”. Sometimes these are easy fixes, better wall spackle and technique. Other times it can be a sign of structural problems that you should address. If you notice cracks in your foundations walls especially diagonally, it could mean that there is some movement in your foundation. If you have block or other types of masonry walls you may see even more cracks both vertically and horizontally. The recent rains that seemed to never end can soften the soil around your home and that’s where movement in your foundation can occur. Perma Seal can give you a certified assessment of what’s going on. If it’s not a structural issue they will tell you that, and if they find an issue, they can offer permanent solutions that are guaranteed and will add value to your home and give you peace of mind.
