Does Your Atlanta Home Have Foundation Problems? Engineered Solutions of Georgia Can Help
There are a number of ways that foundation problems can manifest. The most obvious sign of trouble comes in the form of visible cracks in your home’s foundation or your basement floor. While newly built homes typically sink and settle slightly during the first 2-3 years after construction, and often develop harmless hairline cracking, any fissure wider than 1/16” should be treated as a red flag as it could be an indication of serious problems in the foundation. Likewise, if one part of your home seems to be sitting lower than the rest, or lower than it used to sit, this may mean that your foundation is sinking and you should call a foundation repair contractor to address the issue immediately.
Moisture in your basement or crawl space can also be an indicator that you have foundation problems. If this is the case with your home, it is very important that you contact a professional who can address this issue before it results in costly damage to your home’s substructure. Doors that stick or don’t open or close properly and gaps around window and door frames can all be signs of foundation problems as well as they suggest uneven settling of your foundation slab.
