Our Approach When It Comes to Inspecting Your Benbrook Property
We normally begin the inspection process by looking at our clients’ concerns. As this requires your presence, so we’ll try to make the appointment as convenient as possible for you.
Our inspections require the proper examination of both the interior and exterior of a home. In addition, we may also examine your home’s perimeter for proper drainage.
When examining a concrete slab foundation, we usually look for telltale signs like:
- Foundation cracks
- Expansion joint separation
- Tile cracks
- Doors out of square
- Uneven floors
- Interior sheetrock cracks
- Exterior cracks
When it comes to a pier and beam foundation, telltale signs we look for include:
- Creaky and bouncy floors
- Indoor humidity and musty smells
- Shifting beams
- Pier collapse
- Shim failure
Our foundation inspections involve the utilization of top-of-the-line technology, including Zip Level. This helps us make accurate conclusions in regard to foundation problems.
Foundation Inspection Report
Under normal conditions, the inspection process only takes an hour or so. We usually require that the homeowner be present so that they can get to learn about the subtle signs and causes of foundation issues.
After completing the process, we’ll go over the findings with you. If repairs are necessary, we’ll provide you a comprehensive free estimate specifying the repairs required.
Signs of Foundation Problems
Foundation problems come in different shapes and sizes. Some are subtle while others can be serious and even impact safety and health codes. The following are some common foundation issues you can look for within your home.
- Walls pulling away from the house. If not fixed, this may even cause the wall to collapse
- Nails popping out of drywall. If widespread, this can be a telltale sign of an underlying foundation problem
- Expansion joint separation. Expansion joints are usually installed to compensate for movement occasioned by earth movements. If an expansion joint fails, the result is widespread cracking
- Bouncing floors. If the floor is feeling similar to a trampoline, it’s vital to get professional help fast
- Rotten wood. Rotten wood can be a sign of multiple things besides a failing foundation. A professional can help get to the root of the problem
- Separation of the window frame from brick. This can also be a serious sign of a failing foundation
- Doors becoming out of square. Does spilled water flow in one direction? If so, the gradient of your home could be compromised by a foundation issue
- Exterior cracks. This is a common sign of foundation failure, especially cracks that take a zigzag shape
