Depending on the type and age of your property, you may have a concrete slab foundation, or a foundation with crawlspace, such as a pier and beam foundation. Or, your property may have a basement to allow you to make the most of the space you have. Different foundation types have their own advantages and disadvantages – and all may need some repairs from time to time.
The experienced team at Greensboro Foundation Repair work across all types of foundation, and can offer repairs, maintenance and general advice, no matter what the issue. Get in touch to learn more.
Repairs To Slab Foundations
If your home has a concrete slab foundation you might notice some damage such as cracks to the floor or walls, or crumbling in the concrete itself over time. This can happen especially in homes which have experienced drainage or erosion issues, or where there are large trees or heavily planted flower borders nearby, as the roots can cause shifts in the soil around the property. Having repairs done quickly can make sure you avoid structural damage to the home, and cit your costs in the long run. Give Greensboro Foundation Repair a call if you need help!
Repairs to Pier and Beam Foundations
If your home has a crawl space it may have been built with a pier and beam, or block and base foundation type. These construction methods mean the property doesn’t sit directly on the ground, giving easy access to utilities via the crawl space. There are many advantages to building this way, but you may also find that repairs are needed over time due to mold or fungus, or deterioration in the base of the foundation, which can cause cracking or leaning in the home.
When To Call In A Professional Foundation Service
If you notice damage in the interior of your home, such as cracks in the walls or floor, or problems closing doors and windows, you may be experiencing foundation problems. You might also notice a buildup of dampness or a bad smell in the crawlspace, or spot damage on the exterior of the house such as cracking or crumbling. Because foundation problems can cause structural issues if left untreated, it’s important to get a professional opinion as soon as you can. Putting off fixing the problem might just lead to more inconvenience and a bigger bill a little further down the line.
