Are you dealing with cracks in your home’s foundation? Even the smallest of cracks can spell trouble as they could become serious. Besides, something caused the cracks in the first place to occur, and if you do nothing about it, you could be dealing with some major home support issues in the near future. It’s vital to consider foundation crack repair in Houston for a number of reasons.
Foundation cracks may eventually result in wall cracks inside the home. You can patch these cracks with joint compound, but chances are they will return (and get worse) unless you fix the source of the problem.
Maybe you plan to put your home on the market soon. It could be very hard to sell a house with foundation cracks. However, if you present proof the foundation has been expertly repaired, and the lifetime warranty is easily transferred to the new owner, this can be a major selling point.
Cracks in a concrete slab can allow moisture to permeate up and get floor coverings like carpet and wood wet, ruining their value, and leading to mold and other health problems. Too much moisture will attract termites.
You could be Unaware
Right now, your foundation could be in trouble and you might not be aware. If you have a paved driveway, check it out now. Are there any new cracks in it? Maybe some of those cracks have gotten bigger. This is a sign your soil is shrinking and settling and if it is settling under the driveway, imagine what is going on underneath your house. Look in your garage for white powder spots on the concrete. This is calcium that is leeching up through the concrete slab and is an indication that the moisture barrier under your slab is damaged.
