Common Questions About Household Foundation Problems
Foundation problems can leave you feeling like you don’t have the answers you need. If you have a home foundation problem, informing yourself of your options can help you make the right decision when repairing your foundation or selling your home. A reputable foundation repair contractor can perform an assessment of your home for more personalized answers and recommendations.
How Will I Know if My Foundation Has a Problem?
Foundation damage may manifest in many different ways. Uneven settling of your home, slanted floors, sticky doors and windows, and visible cracks in your basement all point to problems with your foundation. If you aren’t sure whether the signs you notice are indications of a foundation problem, contact a professional for an evaluation.
Can I Sell My Home With a Damaged Foundation?
In most cases, you can still sell a home with a damaged foundation. However, you cannot hide this fact from potential buyers. You must disclose the structural issue to any potential bidders to ensure they know the condition of the home.
Does Repairing My Foundation Lower My Home’s Value?
Repairing your foundation with a reputable company raises rather than lowers your home’s value. Buyers will know that a thorough evaluation of the foundation has been made and that the necessary steps have been taken to strengthen its structural stability.
What Happens During Foundation Repair?
Foundation repairs aim to return your home to its original position while stabilizing and strengthening the foundation against future movement. These repairs generally take one to two days and will depend upon the damage your home has sustained and your foundation type. Concrete or steel pressed pilings placed beneath your home to lift it back up are the most common type of foundation repair.
