Important Facts To Remember About Your Foundation

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 02, 2010

Foundation Repair definitely is something you will want to address within your home. It is not something you want to overlook and ignore hoping it will fix itself. We have been in the business of foundation crack repair for a long time and did some research on the subject and came across the following facts. Safety must come first when it comes to this topic.

  • Many homeowners experience the need for foundation repair. It's definitely something none of us look forward to, but unfortunately it happens.
  • Foundation repair is usually needed most if the home was built on expansive soils. That's where damage and movement is common. Expansive soils contain minerals that absorb water that can wreak havoc to your home's foundation.
  • Water and weather are two of your worst enemies when it comes to your home's foundation. They both can have damaging effects. You have some control over water; however, weather unfortunately is not controllable.
  • Trees actually absorb a good deal of water near the foundation of your home. Trees can be beautiful addition to the landscape of your home; as well as helpful to your home’s foundation.
  • Whenever you suspect your home may have a foundation problem, check for cracked sheetrock or cracks in your home's brick on the outside.
  • Sometimes when there's a problem, doors or windows may not open easily.
  •  If you procrastinate doing foundation repairs and want to sell your home, it may hamper your closing.
