Take Control of Your Home’s Moisture
Home is where the heart is. Truer words have never been spoken! However, if your home is plagued by moisture issues and your foundation is riddled with troubling cracks, then your home is where the water is! And unfortunately, this means your foundation could be in very serious trouble!
Here’s why. Your home’s foundation is the glue that holds everything together. Its base is the strength that your entire house is built upon. So, when things start to crack at the bottom, it is only going to travel upward and cause more structural damage to parts at the top!
For example, if you notice cracks in the wall or gaps around your windows, these could signify that your foundation is damaged and starting to affect other structures within your house.
Here are some additional signs that your foundation is in trouble:
- Warped floorboards
- Plaster cracks in walls
- Musty smells
- Doors that stick
- Sagging floors
- Pooling water near slab foundation
- Wet crawl space
- Uncomfortable humidity
- Bugs in the basement
So, what causes foundation damage? Here are a few things:
- Expanding and contracting soil
- Excessive moisture
- Inadequate drainage
- Environmental stress (foundation shifts, cracks or settles unevenly)
