Warning Signs That You Need to Repair the Foundation of Your Carillon Lakes Home For Sale
It is important to address problems with the foundation of your Carillon Lakes home for sale as soon as you see these warning signs.
A shifting, settling, or failing foundation can cause major structural damage to your Carillon Lakes home. The sooner you are able to fix any problems in your home’s foundation, the less damage it can cause.
The problem with foundation issues is they don’t show up right away. Your home’s foundation shifts, settles, or fails gradually and the simple telltale signs of foundation problems could be easily overlooked by homeowners.
Here are warning signs of foundation problems:
1. Cracks in floors
2. Misaligned garage doors, exterior doors, and windows
3. Bulging floors
4. Cracks in the foundation, brick, or stonework
5. Interior doors don’t fit their jambs any longer or get stuck
6. Cracks in the interior sheet rock
If you notice any of these signs of foundation problems, call a structural engineer immediately. The engineer will assess the damage and determine what type of repairs are needed for the foundation of your home. The engineer will also identify the causes of the problems in your home’s foundation.
The next step would be to call a foundation repair company to do the necessary repairs (like slabjacking and piering) to save your Carillon Lakes home for sale.
Make sure to ask your structural engineer what caused the problem and how you can prevent it in the future. Usually, the culprits are uneven distribution of moisture in the subsoil which results in settling and shifting, eventually destroying the home’s foundation. This can be avoided by making sure you have good lot drainage and sufficient and properly installed gutters.
Addressing problems in your home’s foundation as soon as you see these warning signs will help you avoid bigger and costlier damages in the future and will help to ensure a smoother sale of your Carillon Lakes home.
