DFW HOME FIX PROVIDES THE BEST EXPERTS IN FOUNDATION REPAIR

How does a homeowner, homebuyer, or real estate investor know if a home or building has a foundation problem or not?  How can you tell what’s happening underneath your foundation? There are some signs you should look for that give us some clues about the state of our foundation foundation repair Keller Colleyville foundation service Southlake

Interior (Inside Signs To Look For):

  • Are there cracks in walls – As the foundation of your home shifts, raises, and/or lowers, excessive stress will be put on the structure of your home and can cause damage to the walls of the structure.
  • Are the doors and windows hard to open and close – This could be humidity causing the doorframe to swell, but it could also be a sign that the doorframe is no longer square shaped and tracking obstruction due to a shifting foundation.
  • Gaps and cracks around window & door frames and baseboard – Just as with sticking doors and windows, cracks and separations around their frames mean the same thing: that the foundation on which your walls are built upon, has moved.
  • Uneven flooring – Your flooring sits on top of your foundation, so any sign that the floor is suffering should be read as a possible foundation problem. Keller foundation repair Colleyville foundation service Southlake

Exterior (Outside Signs To Look For):

  • Cracks in masonry – These could be signs due to a shifting foundation, and this should be taken as a potential sign of foundation issues.
  • Cracks in the foundation itself – Extremely small cracks aren’t likely to cause major problems, but even the smallest cracks can grow over a period of  time; and when they do, it can mean future structural issues.
  • Plumbing issues – As your foundation settles — or moves in some other unpredictable manner — your home’s plumbing may fail. While fixing the offending pipe may seem like the final solution, if the foundation hasn’t been stabilized, you’ll simply be repeating this repair in the future.
  • Chimney is detached/uneven – While this could be attributed to structural problems with your chimney itself, it can also indicate foundation problems in your home.
  • Gaps in the fascia – Facia Board gaps could be your home settling or reacting to humidity, but they could also be signs of a foundation problem.
  • New/unusual drainage patterns – If water seems to run toward, rather than away from, your home during a storm, then you could have foundation problems.
  • Neighbors swimming pool leaking and washing your foundation away. foundation repair Keller Colleyville foundation service Southlake

Foundation Settling Is Not Always A Foundation Problem

Some of these signs and symptoms may not be the result or indication of foundation failure. It all comes down to how much your foundation moves or settles. Does it move enough to cause plumbing damage? Keller foundation repair Colleyville foundation service Southlake
