Foundation Repairs Requires “Detective Work” Not Everyone Is Truly Prepared For
Homeowners often consider the possibility of foundation damage when the home has suffered through a flood or other crisis that could cause issues. There are probably hundreds of firms around Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, and the Carolinas promising to help with this.
However, getting to the bottom of the issue requires some real deduction!
When Was The Last Time You Did Some Inspection Of Your Building’s Foundation?
The signs of foundation damage can be very subtle — and homeowners often overlook them, thinking that they are simply part and parcel with the aging of a structure.
For example, something as simple as hairline cracks in the walls or sudden tears in your wall paper can suggest that your foundation is becoming damaged.
Foundation damage is significantly accelerated by any contact with standing water. That can come from a catastrophic flood — the kind of flood that you know about right away — as well as from unseen shifts in the ground water around your home.
During serious flooding conditions, every hour that your foundation is exposed to water can add a year to its functional age. When repairing foundations, it’s important for a contractor team to hunt down the risk factors and make sure they won’t recur.
Otherwise, you could end up getting your foundation repaired again sooner than you think!
