Your home’s foundation is its unsung hero. It keeps everything steady and supported.
It’s not just about the aesthetic appeal or the cozy interior of your home. The real security lies in what’s beneath it.
Over time, even the strongest foundations can face challenges from soil conditions, water damage, or past construction nuances. No matter the reason, our team is ready to step in and ensure your home remains as sturdy and dependable as ever.
Water damage and subpar drainage systems can lead to substantial foundation issues. When water accumulates or drainage is inadequate, it might cause the foundation to crack, shift, or even sink.
Always be observant of soil conditions around your home, especially after unusual weather patterns. Wet soil during dry periods or overly dry soil after a rain could hint at underlying drainage problems.
Addressing foundation issues promptly can save you from more significant concerns down the road. Be vigilant about:
- Cracks in the walls or ceilings
- Doors that don’t shut properly or gaps appearing near them
- Windows becoming difficult to open or close
- Walls pulling away or detaching from adjacent walls
- Noticeable sag or tilt in your flooring
These symptoms are essential indicators. They highlight that something might be off with your home’s foundation, requiring professional attention.
If you’re experiencing uneven floors, sticky windows, or misaligned doors, your house may need leveling. This procedure addresses issues stemming from various factors. Houses constructed on clay-rich soils, for example, may face more challenges since clay shifts over time and reacts differently with varying weather conditions.
Another important factor to consider is the construction era and materials used in building your home. For instance, homes built during the 1950s or earlier often utilized materials that weren’t reinforced as they are today. Without reinforcements like rebar to strengthen a concrete foundation, such bases become more susceptible to cracks, sinking, and settling.
House leveling fixes these issues, restoring balance and alignment to your home, ensuring a safe and comfortable living environment.
