FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED FOUNDATION REPAIR?
Expanding and contracting soils, tree roots close to the foundation, droughts and heavy rains...these are all issues that create movement and can directly effect the foundation of your home. Visible signs of foundation movement include cracks in the exterior brick or siding, separations around window and door frames, doors that are sticking or have large gaps around door reveals, sloping floors, etc... These are all indications of movement, yet this does not always mean foundation repair is needed. We can do an evaluation for you, shoot some elevations around your home, and discuss your options if repairs needed or discuss a prevention plan and suggest items that may help your situation, like placing soaker hoses around the perimeter of your home for consistent moisture content, or installing root barriers if your trees are becoming an issue.

We will also use a digital level throughout your home to take elevations, this provides us with visual tool to help you see if/where settlement has occurred in your home.
