There are several warning signs that your home might need foundation repair. It is important to pay attention to your home and watch for anything unusual. We want to share some common warning signs. If you notice these around your house, give us a call.
Cracks in the Foundation & Dry Wall
We get a lot of phone calls for cracks in the slab, cracks in the dry wall and ceilings, as well as cracks on the exterior walls of the home. Cracks typically mean that the foundation has settled in some areas causing part of the foundation to shift or sink. This unbalance causes the foundation to separate and crack, and as a result the walls will start to crack. Installing foundation piers will solve the problem.
Doors & Windows are Sticking
Another common foundation issue are doors and windows that begin to stick and become difficult to open and close. This is often a sign that the foundation has settled. The settlement has placed extra pressure on the door frame which makes it difficult to open and close. Most likely the home will need some foundation piers to level the foundation and fix the problem.
As a home owner it is important to do some research on the different types of foundation piers that each foundation repair company uses. At Premier Foundation Repair, we offer a few different options of foundation piers. We like to give our home owners a couple of choices.
