Foundation of Your Home is Cracking: What to Know

Your home is the foundation of your life. It's where you raise your family, build memories, and put down roots. So, when you start seeing foundation cracks, it can be a cause for major concern. If you're not sure what to do about them, don't worry! This article will tell you everything you need to know about foundation repair. We'll discuss the signs that your foundation is in trouble, the different types of repairs that are available, and how to choose the right contractor for the job. Don't let your foundation crumble.

What to do if you find cracks in your home's foundation

If you find cracks in your foundation, the first thing you should do is not panic. There are several reasons why foundation cracks occur, and not all of them are cause for alarm. However, it's important to inspect the cracks closely so that you can determine whether or not they pose a threat to the stability of your home. If the cracks are small and few, then foundation repair may not be necessary. But if the cracks are large or numerous, then you'll need to take action to prevent further damage.

How to fix a cracked foundation

There are two main types of foundation repairs: structural and cosmetic. Structural repairs involve fixing issues that affect the stability of your home, such as cracked walls or sunken floors. Cosmetic repairs, on the other hand, are designed to improve the appearance of your foundation without affecting its structural integrity. Whether you need structural or cosmetic repairs will depend on the severity of the damage to your foundation.
If you're not sure whether or not your foundation needs to be repaired, it's always best to consult with a professional such as Pinnacle Foundation Repair. A qualified foundation contractor will be able to assess the damage and recommend the best course of action. They can also give you an estimate of the cost of foundation repair so that you can budget for the work.

Signs that your home may have a foundation issue

There are several warning signs that your foundation is in need of repair. If you notice any of the following, it's time to call a foundation contractor:

  • cracks in walls or floors
  • doors and windows that stick or won't close properly
  • gaps between the foundation and the framing of your home
  • uneven floors
  • pooling water around your foundation
