The Importance of Structural Repairs for Your Home

You need a solid foundation!

Nothing is more important to your home than its structure. It’s the foundation upon which everything else is built. Having a foundation that’s tough, durable, and sturdy keeps your home strong and intact.

Problems with your foundation can go unnoticeable for quite some time, without you even knowing it. Although they may start small, structural problems can get out of control. This can cause severe cosmetic damages to your home, affecting its stability. Without effectively and efficiently handling the structural problems, more damage can occur, causing an even bigger financial burden.

If you assess your home and notice signs of structural instability which needs to be repaired, immediately contact a contractor, such as All Star Construction, Inc. When it comes to your home and its foundation, the sooner you call, the quicker we can repair the problem. Your home’s structure depends on it. Our highly trained and experienced design/build contractors will keep your home, and your family, safe and secure.

The Importance of Structural Repairs for Your Home

 

No matter if you’re a current homeowner who is staying in your home or possibly selling your home, or if you are looking to purchase a home, the home’s foundation is a critical selling point. Before you envision you and your family in the interior of your home, cozying up to the fireplace, dining in your extended dining room, or lounging around in the family room, look at the home’s foundation. So, how do you spot structural and foundation damages? First you need to know if the cracks you see are normal signs of the house settling, or if they are possible foundation issues.

Here are a few signs of structural problems:

-cracked drywall

-doors or windows that don’t properly shut or stick

-misaligned windows and doors

-floors that slope

-breaks between the wall and ceiling

A rule of thumb is: “Thin cracks — less than ¼ inch — on foundations and walls happen as a house settles, and have probably been around for most of the house’s life. They just have to be sealed to prevent water intrusion.” (https://www.trulia.com/blog/need-to-know-cracked-foundation-repair-before-buying-a-home/)

You need to fix these structural problems immediately. Otherwise it could be an even greater costly repair in the future. Leaving it will only make matters worse, and could cause additional problems to your home. If you’re selling your home, it’s best to fix repairs to your foundation prior to selling. Having a stable home foundation appeals to potential homebuyers.
