Read About it Below
This is a residential foundation repair we started over here in this corner we came around it has severe damage here so we remove the decorative rock remove the dirt all the way down to the bottom of the footing and ripped out everything here that was damaged, pretty severely, then made the repairs waterproof to all the way down and painted it. Then added a little bit of dirt along here the homeowner did some waterproofing before we put the dirt in, and we’re here at the homeowner Jeff. Hello good morning Jeff, how you doing? Good, thank you.
Can you tell us a little bit about your foundation repair? Yes, I had about 25 feet of pretty severe horizontal cracking, in the front here by the bedrooms, and I knew it needed to be repaired, because, it wasn’t going to get better before it got worse. So, I had James come out and look it over, he gave me an estimate and a date to come out and repair it. They did that, I took 3 or 4 days. One day to dig, one day to bust out the concrete and start filling it in with there a “special concrete mixture they got, and a day to paint it. They filled it in, and sloped the dirt away from the house, as he told me I should do. It looks good, I hope it’s going to last for another 20 or 30 years. Awesome Jeff, thank you so much for calling us we do appreciate it. Thank you.

Look for these signs of foundation problems :
Pay close attention to the paint on the foundation’s stem wall. Is the paint in good condition? Do you notice any paint chipping or flaking? Do you notice any cracks in the paint? Do you notice any bare areas where you can see exposed concrete? Is the stem wall painted below the landscaping / dirt grade? Really take the time to inspect the paint on the home’s foundation.
As you take a close look at the paint on the property’s foundation be on the look out for blisters or bubbles in the paint. If you notice the paint is lifting and separating from the foundation you should be concerned. Inspect these areas more closely and look for signs of moisture in these areas. If it feels damp to the touch, take note and look for other areas with similar appearance.
Take the time and look for any cracks in the foundation and exterior walls. Cracks in the foundation are not normal. If you notice any cracks, take note and ask questions. If you notice any concrete falling off the foundation in any areas you should take notice.
As you continue to look around the exterior of the property look for any cracks on the walls. Pay close attention around the windows and doorways. Cracks are bad and are possible signs of bigger problems.
Also be on the look out for any low points in the landscaping, any signs of areas where water can collect and puddle.
After you have checked the exterior of the home, take a good look at the interior. Take a close look around and be on the look out for any cracks in the walls, more importantly look for any signs of repairs and patching that may have been done to fix or conceal any cracks. Look around windows, doorways and corners. If notice any cracks or signs of cracks, take note.
As you walk through the inside of the home, pay particular attention to the floors. Take a close look and see if there are any cracks in the tile, any high or low points and any other signs that appear to be just not right or level.
If you notice anything odd as you inspect the property you should have it looked at before making an offer or buying the property. Ignoring these signs can be very costly and you want to be sure that you are making a good investment.
