Get It Fixed Before Its Too Late!
As a property owner, dealing with a cracked or compromised foundation can be a hassle. But don’t worry, RCS membrane has the solutions to any issues your building may encounter.
The foundation of your home is essential to keep it safe and stable. Even though we try to prevent natural disasters, they can still happen and cause significant damage. Additionally, natural wear and tear can also cause problems, such as poor soil compaction, plumbing leaks, and insufficient foundation drainage. It’s important to stay aware of any signs of danger. Here are some examples to help you understand:
If you notice a line of cracks on the inside or outside of your home’s walls or a damaged chimney, it could be a sign of a faulty foundation. This is a common symptom that indicates a problem with the foundation of your home.
Floors With An Incline
When the foundation of your home moves upward, it’s known as foundation upheaval. This can affect not only the border range of a slab foundation but also the inside surfaces of your property, such as doors. This may occur due to extreme moisture or soil expansion.
Old Doors and Windows
If you’re aware that your doors or windows were not properly installed, it’s best to avoid any potential risks. However, if they seem to be functioning correctly and then start to malfunction, it’s important to be cautious. This could be a sign that your foundation is shifting or deteriorating over time.
Other Foundation Issues
GAPS OF IMPORTANCE
There are several important gaps to look out for in your home. These gaps can often be found around your exterior doors and window frames or between the crown molding and ceiling.
FLOORS THAT ARE PATCHY OR SAGGING
If your floor appears to be patchy, sagging, or bending, this could be a sign of a faulty beam or pier foundation.
DRAINAGE OF WATER
Poor water drainage is a common problem caused by dry or moist soil. It’s important to evaluate the surrounding area of your property to fix the issue as soon as possible. If you have a wet basement on a regular basis, RCS can inspect your foundation and provide an estimate to fix the problem. They can use structural supports, such as foundation pilings or piers, to ensure your foundation is returned to its original level place as closely as possible.
