How to Know If Your Foundation Needs Help
A lot of homeowners in San Antonio and Austin, TX wonder how they can know if their foundation needs fixing if it’s underneath their house. Problems can indeed go unnoticed for too long, and then they become bigger issues. However, there are some things you can do to look for signs of foundation damage. Foundation damage usually occurs because of shifting in the soil underneath or around the house. When the earth moves, the concrete is strained and can crack. Large swings in temperature can also cause soil and concrete to expand and shrink, which could harm the foundation. Look for the following signs around your house. They can be early warning signs of more serious foundation damage.
- Cracks or shifts in exterior brickwork.
- Cracked Sheetrock or drywall inside the house.
- Cracks or shifts in concrete sidewalks or driveways around the house.
