Signs You Need to Hire a Foundation Repair Contractor
Calling a foundation repair contractor probably isn’t on your list of enjoyable things to do. But, letting a foundation problem go unaddressed is highly inadvisable. Even what looks to be minor problem could very well be a sign that your foundation has deeper underlying issues. Consider a crack in a foundation wall, for example. If it is small – say, less than a quarter inch – then it is probably nothing serious. A wider crack, on the other hand, is likely going to require the attention of a qualified foundation repair professional. A sizable crack could be an indication that too much water is coming into contact with your foundation through the soil. Or, it could mean that your foundation wasn’t built properly, or was built using inferior materials. Whatever the cause(s), a foundation repair contractor will be able gauge the severity of the problem and prevent it from becoming a bigger one down the road.
Finding a crack in a foundation wall is just one way of determining that you may be in need of assistance from a foundation repair professional. What else can indicate a foundation issue? Telltale signs include:
