Common Signs of Foundation Problems
If you think your foundation may be compromised but you’re not entirely sure, check for the following telltale signs of foundation problems:
- Cracks on the walls, floors, and/or the foundation.
- Uneven or sagging floors.
- Gaps around the doors or window frames.
- A noticeable lean or tilt in the chimney.
- Windows or doors that won’t open or close properly.
- Leaning or bowing walls.
If you notice any of these signs, get a professional foundation inspection immediately.
Why are Foundation Problems Common in the State of Texas?
Foundation problems are all too common for properties located in North Texas. The area’s seasonal cycles and expansive clay soils are the cause of this. During the rainy season, the expansive clay soil will absorb water and expand. This rapid soil expansion exerts pressure on the foundation, causing major foundation issues.
During the dry season, the clay soil will lose its moisture and shrink if it is not watered properly. This will cause the foundation to settle, which will usually first show up in the form of cracks on the walls. If left untreated, this will result in major foundation issues later on.
What Does Granite Foundation’s Free Foundation Inspection Entail?
At Granite Foundation Repair, we understand that no two homes are ever created the same. That’s why we customize each foundation inspection we conduct to meet the specific needs of each of our clients.
On the day of the inspection, we’ll begin with a walkaround of the property we are inspecting. We use this opportunity to do a visual examination of the property, looking for signs of foundation problems. Such signs include cracks on the walls, tilting or bending in the chimney, and foundation sinking or upheaval. We also check to see whether or not the property has any drainage issues.
Next, we will continue the inspection process within your home. Common signs of foundation problems that we check for on the inside of the home include improperly functioning doors and windows, cracks on the walls, and uneven floors. We’ll also inspect the crawl space.
Depending on the size of the home, we usually take anywhere between half an hour to one hour to complete the inspection. We will then complete a report of our findings and take you through them. If we do come across a foundation issue, we’ll provide you with our best advice on the course of action you should take to fix it.
