Your home’s foundation keeps your entire house stable for decades at a time—at least, it should if your foundation is healthy. That is why it is so vital to monitor it regularly by checking for foundation damage around your home.
Some homes may have foundation issues for years without anyone ever noticing. As a result, it is tough for most homeowners to see the problem and act accordingly.
Bluebird Foundation Repair & Waterproofing can handle these issues. Let’s go over what foundation repair entails and what we can offer to fix those problems:
Signs of Damaged Foundation
Once you know what to look for, finding signs of foundation damage is not too tricky. The most common sign of damage is cracks anywhere in your foundation, including:
- Drywall (results from shifting foundation and moving walls)
- Floors (any material)
- Brickwork (often also indicates that there is something going on beneath the drywall)
- Corners (marked by wide gaps in vinyl sidings and other materials)
If you note cracks in any of the areas mentioned above, do not wait. Call a professional as soon as possible. Today, cracks may seem like a minor inconvenience. Eventually, however, they will become so much more than that.
Apart from the issues mentioned above, you may also notice that your chimney is leaning if your home has any structural damage. Do not ignore this symptom either.
Why Should I Repair My Foundation?
We can’t stress this enough: foundation issues will not heal themselves. As long as the ground beneath your home keeps shifting and the Michigan weather takes its toll, the problem will only get worse if no one intervenes. Not only will postponing repair lead to more extensive damage, it will also be much more expensive to fix.
What’s more, you want to keep these things in mind for the future, should you ever decide to move on and sell your home. Potential buyers will look critically at your home’s foundation to ensure that it is safe and will not cause them any trouble in the future.
