Signs of Foundation Damage
Have you noticed that your home or business is experiencing chipping or crumbling concrete? Have you been ignoring it because it’s just a little crack or just some of it crumbling? Are the cracks either around the sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, or even around the building’s foundation? If they are bad enough that you have noticed them, it may be a problem that could require foundation repair.
Not only can crumbling concrete be an eyesore and a tripping hazard, but it may also be a symptom of a deeper problem such as foundation failure. If you have noticed chipping or crumbling concrete, especially if it’s around the structure’s foundation, make sure to start taking note of other foundation failure symptoms, such as:
- Wall cracks
- Leaning or bowing walls
- Sticking doors or windows
These are all signs that your home or business may be in serious need of foundation repair. Unfortunately, it won’t be as easy as crack repair. However, it might take a dual approach of crack repair and leveling or underpinning.
Foundation repair is never something to leave until later, as it will only worsen over time. While chipping and crumbling concrete by itself may not mean foundation failure, it is still wise to have a professional from Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry come and inspect your problem. Even if it does not end up being foundation failure, Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry may be able to help you repair the chipping and crumbling concrete by patching or replacing it. We have a variety of services, depending on your needs or wants, that can repair concrete.
