Many people don’t realize that having water in their basement can be a sign of a much bigger problem, including foundation cracks. Other signs might also be present. You might think the problem is localized to the basement only; however, Premier Wall Anchor & Waterproofing knows that finding the problem starts with examining the issue to locate the source.
Locating The Problem
There are many things in your home that might signal a foundation crack. Oftentimes, the first signs of a problem aren’t in the basement but on the ground level and higher floors. You might notice that windows don’t open and close as easily as they usually do. Doors might fail to latch or become jammed.
Other signs you might notice are cracks in ceramic or vinyl tiles that are laid over concrete floors, as well as cracks in the walls near the ceiling or by doors and windows. It’s possible that a leaky basement is the final sign of the problem. Many times, the water has already saturated the interior walls and structures before the problem gets so bad that the water makes its way to the basement.
In the beginning, these problems might not seem significant, but you should be vigilant about the severity. If they become worse over time, you need to have the problem evaluated. You might not notice a problem until the underlying problem becomes urgent.
Providing A Full Evaluation
A full evaluation of the home is usually required, even when it seems like the problems are minor or the water in the basement is contained to one area. We can determine how to fix cracks in the foundation to stop the issues, including water in the basement, if this is a contributing factor. We can also work to prevent further issues from occurring when we correct the current problem.
By looking at the entire situation, we can determine the best way to do this. Contact Premier Wall Anchor & Waterproofing to have your situation evaluated so we can formulate a treatment plan to address the problems.
