Support and stability are two of the most important aspects of any home. When it comes to major repairs, sometimes it’s the small warning signs that lead you to find the bigger, more concerning issues for your foundation. The only problem is, how do you know when you to seek expertise for something that seems quite small but if left too long, could potentially lead to something more costly?
Foundation shifts and settling are common for any home and coming across small cracks can be quite a normal find. We have noted 3 seemingly small signs to keep an eye out for and when you may need to call in the experts.
Small, diagonal, and interior cracks can be caused from a variety of issues but any crack wider than three millimetres in width should not be ignored. Have a professional inspect the crack if you notice any wide cracks on interior and exterior walls.
Got a leak in your roof? This can be a sign of foundation shifting. Continuous leaking can lead to more serious foundational issues like rotting or warping wood. Get someone to come out and take a look if you have had a continuous leak in one area of your home.
Have you noticed water collecting near the foundation of your home? In many cases, collecting water can be a sign of problematic drainage. Seek an expert’s opinion of the pooling water, just to be safe. Drainage issues can become a costly repair if paired with a crack in the foundation of your home, which eventually can lead to significant water damage and foundation issues.
As with any home repair, small warning signs can be easily detected with the help of an expert.
