Be a Basement Investigator: Clues your Foundations Need Repair


 
Home Improvement,Home Repair

As a property owner, it is vital that you stay informed about the health of your building’s foundations. Whilst this may not seem like the most glamorous aspect of home ownership, it is imperative to be aware of the signs of damage to the base of your property so that potential issues don’t spiral and become bigger, costlier problems.

Expert companies in New Jersey can help support with the clues that your substructure might need attention, and any foundation repair work that may be required.

Walls

Your walls might be giving you hints about the strength of what holds them up. Cracks that look like stairs, horizontal or vertical cracks all give an indication that there may be an issue. A significant red flag is bowing walls; if the foundation walls bow greater than three inches, some serious foundation repair work will likely be in order. Wall anchors will need to be installed by a professional in order to straighten and stabilize them, and in the worst cases, excavation and rebuilding of the base may be required. If you notice bowing of your walls, it’s a good idea to call an expert company to hear their professional opinion on your next steps.

Doors

Your doors can also provide clues about the strength of your foundations. If you find that they are becoming difficult to open and close, or notice cracks along the doorframe, it might be time to call a reputable foundation repair company. Gaps along the tops of doors can mean that your base hasn’t settled, which will require levelling to address. It could be a sign that your foundation is sinking.

Cracks

Cracks on their own may not be a sign of foundation failure, but they could be an indication that you should get things checked out. If exterior cracks are large and have a zig-zag pattern something could be amiss; cracks in the drywall should be noted if there are other signs of foundation issues alongside them, such as the clues discussed in this article. A secondary sign of problems that may be easier to spot is the presence of bugs in the home - they can enter through cracks in the structure, so be on the lookout for ants, roaches, centipedes and earwigs.

Floors

A clear indication of issues with the substructure of a building is uneven or sagging floors. Soft spots in the floor, or items rolling on a surface that should be flat will need foundation repair. Check that your basement floor doesn’t have any cracks, and look for buckled or damaged flooring if you suspect some damage may be done to your home’s base. These issues may have been caused by improper waterproofing of your substructure. This will allow moisture in through the floors that will eventually cause warping.

An experienced and reputable foundation repair company can help you to rectify any issues you may find, but it will help you to save time and money in the long run if you can stay vigilant to the signs of foundation failure. All of these indications should be noted and discussed with professionals quickly, in order to avoid potentially significant repair work in the future.
