    Common Foundation Repair Tips & Mistakes

    Foundation Support Specialists has been serving homeowners in Texas since 2017. Throughout that time, these are the most common tips and mistakes our team has noticed along the way.

    Foundation Repair Tips

    • Regular Maintenance: Staying on top of your foundation’s condition is the best way to catch problem signs early. Walking around your house at least once a year and taking a close look at your foundation can make a huge difference. Look for cracks, settling, or moisture buildup near your foundation.
    • Remove Trees That Are Too Close: Did you know that tree roots usually extend about twice the size of their tree’s canopy? If you have trees located close to your foundation, and their branches extend over your roof, there’s a good chance that the roots will penetrate your foundation can cause damage. We recommend removing these close trees or keeping a close eye on their root systems.
    • Don’t Wait: As soon as you notice any signs of foundation damage, it’s best to contact a professional. Even if the problem seems small, it will grow into a larger problem if left unchecked. FSS offers a free inspection for your home. Having our team come check out anything you see never hurts.

    Foundation Repair Mistakes

    • DIY Projects: When homeowners notice cracks in their walls or on their foundation, they may be tempted to fill in the cracks with sealant from their local hardware store. Unfortunately, these commercial sealants don’t solve the root problem behind foundation damage. Even though they make the damage look better, the foundation is still shifting. 
    • Leaving a Home with Foundation Damage: The reality is that even new homes can suffer from foundation damage. If you’ve found your dream home, but it happens to be experiencing foundation damage, don’t walk away from it. Modern solutions provided by FSS can save your home and keep it permanently protected. Don’t let foundation damage scare you away from a home you love. 
    • Ignoring Soil: Most foundation damage is caused by soil problems. Weather and climate is to blame for weak soil. Texas’ dry environment can make soil brittle, while the summer rains can cause them to wash away and erode. As a homeowner, staying informed on what type of soil is in your yard allows you to stay on top of potential issues that could arise in the future. Don’t ignore the soil on your property.
