Foundation Repair in Genesee Township, MI

Foundation Repair Genesee TownshipHave you noticed that your home seems to have a string of mysterious problems such as sagging floors or cracking walls?  If so, it may be a sign that your home is suffering from foundation issues.  Unfortunately,  many homeowners have been taught that foundation issues are ridiculously expensive, often leading them to put off inspections and basic maintenance.

The result of this is that all too often homeowners put off small repairs until it is too late, and expensive and extensive repairs have to be done in order to save the home from being condemned.  Fortunately, there are ways to avoid this outcome.

Foundation Damage Warning Signs

To protect what is most likely your greatest asset, start by inspecting your home and looking for any of these signs of damage:

  • Doors that “stick’ or fail to latch
  • Cracks in the walls over doorways, windows, or ceilings
  • Cracks in the grout around tiles or across concrete floors
  • Windows that won’t close easily or are “sticking”
  • Cracks in brick veneers
  • Visible damage to exposed parts of the foundation
  • Leaning or shifting exterior walls

If you’re experiencing two or more of these issues, it’s crucial to find a foundation repair company you can trust to determine the reason.  While these problems don’t always point directly to a foundation problem, it is very likely that the more of these issues that you see, the more likely it is that your home has cracks in its foundation. Fortunately, it is possible to repair the damage.

Foundation Repair Solutions

Unfortunately for homeowners, foundation damage to a home is very difficult to see just by looking at the base of the house.  Damage is often hard to see because it occurs under the ground, in the parts of the foundation that are not exposed to the outside air.  To determine the extent of damage, you need to call professional foundation companies that have specialized equipment necessary to do a proper inspection.

Damage to a foundation usually occurs slowly from rain and snow melt that soak into the ground around the base of the home. Over time, this water is absorbed into the small fissures and holes in a concrete foundation.  In the winter the water freezes, and the ice that is formed expands the small holes into larger cracks. As the cracks spread throughout the foundation, the concrete breaks apart.  This causes the home itself to essentially be sitting on top of a pile of gravel.

Fortunately, if the small cracks and fissures are caught early, repairs can be relatively small and inexpensive.  Detecting and repairing these issues is part of the routine maintenance that homeowners should do on their house.  If this maintenance is neglected, however, it can lead to much larger problems.  If large portions of the foundation become so cracked and damaged that it cannot be repaired, then those portions will have to be replaced.

At Foundation Solutions 360 we pride ourselves on giving our customers honest and complete quotes for the work they may need to their home.  You can trust that our trained technicians will give you honest and accurate estimates of the repairs that you really need to make.

Benefits of Foundation Repair

Because foundation problems have the potential to become such expensive issues to address, it’s a good idea to have an inspection done as soon as possible.   A site visit by one of our trained technicians can often determine if there are problems with the foundation of a home.  The technician will then discuss with you how these problems can be resolved.

Even if you are not seeing any warning signs of foundation damage, having regular inspections of your home’s foundation can provide you with peace of mind.  If an issue does arise, taking care of it right away will save you thousands of dollars in repair bills in the future.

Not only does early detection and regular maintenance prevent expensive home foundation repair bills, but they will also mitigate a lot of major headaches and repairs to the internal and external structure of the home.
