Isaac Lara has worked in Home Foundation Repairs for over 15 years and one thing he has discovered is that a lot of companies are over charging their customers. Great work and customer service is a key factor and an awesome price is certainly well deserved by homeowners. Here at Liberty Home Foundation Repair, we strive to make your home as safe and stable as it should be for your family. Foundation repairs can be exhausting to both your peace of mind and your budget let us help you. There are many signs of foundation problems that can be seen to detect this at an early stage before it gets worse. Below are some early detection signs:
1. Fractured Brick
Cracks in brick cladding may indicate a sunken footing. Look for “stair stepping” cracks near window and doorways, running vertically or diagonally near the ground and foundation corners.
2. Cracks in Interior/Exterior Concrete
Uneven, sunken concrete slab, garage slab, separation of concrete slab, steps, patio or sidewalks all may be signs of volatile soil or settlement and should be repaired before becoming hazardous. This may also cause moisture intrusion – leading to rotting thresholds, mold and poor indoor air quality.
3. Malfunctioning Doors or Windows
Doors or windows that stick may indicate the warping or distortion of your home’s frame due to foundation failure and moisture intrusion. After all that rain some doors and windows have become harder to open and shut.
4. Cracked Interior Walls
Vertical cracks in interior sheetrock or plaster, as well as displaced molding or wood trim may indicate a sinking foundation caused by soil bearing failure. Look for these signs around windows, wall openings and interior corners.
5. Creaky/Bouncing Floor
Do certain areas of your floor creak? Does the china cabinet rattle? These are signs that your home’s framing may be warped by a shifting foundation or water damage, or may indicate the need for added structural supports.
