Problems With Your Wall
Are you experiencing problems with your wall? The first sign you should look for before you call a foundation inspector is to take a close look at the walls in your home. If you notice damage to the exterior and interior of the walls in your home, then you know that there’s a problem. Walls will tell you if there is a need for a foundation inspection in your home. The walls are also one of the easiest signs to notice because you can check around the doors, windows, corners, and on the dry wall of each wall. In How To Know If Your House Is Settling Or You Have Foundation Problems, we discussed how to tell the difference between whether your home is settling and what that means or if you are in need of foundation repair. Keep in mind that if you notice cracks in the exterior as well, that it’s an obvious sign that your home needs to be inspected.
Water Movement In Your Home
What’s going on with the water movement in your home? Have you noticed anything different? In addition to problems with your walls, another sure sign that your home is in need of foundation inspection is the water movement in your home. Foundation damage can occur because of the soil around your foundation becoming soaked. When there is too much water that gets into your home, it can damage the foundation and cause it to shift and crack. Check the water drains around your home. The water drains should be a telltale sign you’re in need of a foundation inspection. In addition, if water is running toward your home, then you definitely need to have your foundation inspected.
Misalignment For Your Doors And Windows
Are your doors or windows misaligned? If you notice that your doors and windows are not aligning properly, it’s time to have a foundation contractor stop in to inspect your home. Double check your doors and windows to make sure that they are not sticking because of the arid weather of Oklahoma and that it’s because of misalignment. When your doors and windows are misaligned it will cause both of them to operate poorly or not at all. Close your windows and doors to see if they are misaligned. If they don’t close all the way and the windows are sticking for reasons you can’t figure out, then you probably have foundation problems. If you’ve noticed your windows and doors are misaligned it’s time to call a foundation inspector.
