In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we wish to communicate to homeowners and employees that Granite Foundation Repair is taking safety precautions seriously.
We’re carefully adhering to Texas government directives and CDC (Center for Disease Control and Protection) protocols to ensure that health measures are actively implemented. In the operation of our business, our team will be practicing precautionary measures such as:
- Habitually washing our hands through the course of our job performance
- Using alcohol and hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol
- Wearing masks and gloves, especially when dealing with clients directly
- Allowing sick employees to stay home, and only allowing healthy staff to perform repair services
Even in these challenging times, we view foundation repair work as essential structural work for Texas property owners. Thus, we make sure to be available to clients who will reach out to keep their property sturdy.
Ignoring the need for this can prove hazardous and pose a threat to residents living in the property. We have carefully issued safety protocols to help our employees and homeowners avoid contracting or spreading the virus.
As more people are staying home during this pandemic, you may begin to spot some of the signs of deterioration in your property that lead to foundation issues. Here are clear foundation problem signs to watch out for in your property.
Contact Granite Foundation Repair if you spot any of these signs. We will arrange for an extensive inspection, and afterward, we can recommend the best course of action.
Signs of Foundation Problems:
- Stuck doors and windows – when you have a tough time opening doors and windows, this could point to a settling problem in your foundation.
- Door and window frames have gaps – when you are unable to securely close your doors and windows, this might be due to a foundation problem.
- Wall cracks appearing – damaged walls with long lines of cracks can also be a sign of foundation issues.
- Sloping floors in your home – when the floor is uneven and begins sloping, it can mean your foundation is compromised.
- Garage door is difficult to close – if there’s a gap when closing your garage door, a foundation problem is likely.
Contact us if you spot any of these signs so we can immediately assess and provide the best solution. Safety is paramount, and a falling structure can be detrimental to the resident or the tenant. This should be a priority, and we are here to help you manage and solve this risk.
Before a physical inspection, we will first ask a couple of questions, then go on a video call for preliminary inspection. After that, we will schedule a physical inspection that will be both suitable for you and the team.
We recommend prompt repairs to the foundation of your property be addressed right away to prevent in-depth damages. We also want to avoid sacrificing your safety or facing a more costly repair later on.

Repairs will be dealt with within a reasonable timeline to ensure that you’ll be able to inhabit the property as soon as possible given the current environment.
