Why Fix Your Foundation?
The foundation is the most important part of any home. It is the backbone from which everything else connects. If Foundation Cracks or Sinking Floors are present, everything else is negatively affected. Not only are foundation problems ugly to look at, but they can also spell disaster down the road. From bowing walls, sinking floors and moldy crawl spaces to large cracks or doors and windows that won’t close, it’s important to address these issues as soon as possible to allow for easier repair and less cost in the long run. Speaking with Jack Power Foundation Repair and even a structural engineer is a good first step.
When it comes to foundation issues, the age of your home doesn’t matter. Foundation problems can affect both new and older homes. In fact, Consumer Reports found that 15 percent of new homes have serious foundation problems, caused by poor construction or shifting soil. Sometimes builders are eager to build new homes and don’t allow enough time for the leveled soil to “age” properly and settle into its final position. And sometimes the soil composition is the wrong soil upon which to build, or a natural spring might be present. These problems will only worsen over time. The sooner a foundation contractor is consulted the better it is for both the foundation and the owner’s pocketbook.
Foundation problems not only affect your home’s appearance and safety, but also decrease the value of your home. When you have cracks in your walls, buckling floors, or doors and windows that won’t open or shut properly, this is likely to scare off a potential buyer.
What might seem like a small problem, such as a drywall crack or stuck window, might actually be a sign of a much more serious problem below your home.
Think You Have Foundation Problems?
It doesn’t always take a Foundation Specialist to tell you that you have foundation problems. You can determine this for yourself if you examine your home carefully.
Here is a checklist for you to follow:
- Cracks in the interior walls. Look at all the corners of windows and doors, and at joints where walls meet walls, ceilings or doors for signs that they are pulling away from each other.
- Cracks in a brick fireplace wall.
- Nails “popping” out of the gypsum board.
- Do your windows and doors fit squarely without binding? Raise and lower the windows in each room and open and close all doors to check.
- Do cracks run diagonally, along mortar joints in the brick veneer? Are the caulk joints pulling apart? Outside the house, check the bottom corners of the windows and doors.
- Check the exposed concrete at the base of the house for cracks. If there are only small cracks, they may be nonstructural, but they may also be the first indication of trouble to come.
- Does water stand in puddles near the house? If possible, check the house after or during a rain. Proper drainage is essential.
- Are there roof leaks when roof material is in good shape?
- Is water being diverted away from the building? Check gutters and downspouts. Do they empty onto a splash block? Does the roof runoff drain away from the house?
Problems like these should not be taken lightly. Cracks in the interior walls are unsightly and reduce the value of your house. Cracks in the brick walls admit wind and rain that damage the sheathing insulation and interior wall. Poorly fitted windowsills and doors let in outside air and result in high utility bills. Roof leaks damage the wooden beams, insulation, interior walls and ceiling, and electrical wiring. Shifting of the soil foundation may cause gas and water lines to loosen or bend, creating unsafe conditions and fire hazards.
