Wall Crack Repair in Omaha
What to do at the first sign of foundation failure
As a homeowner in the Omaha, Nebraska, area, you have to be vigilant in regards to home repairs and maintenance. There are times where it can feel overwhelming and that “something always goes wrong.” Between the furnace, the A.C. unit and other household appliances, your home’s foundation can be forgotten. Your home’s foundation is one of the most important parts of your home, as it holds the structure in place. If your foundation becomes in disrepair with wall cracks and water damage, it can become unstable and your whole house will begin to shift.
This shifting presents itself in different ways and can happen slowly over time or happen rather quickly. Quality Foundation is here to help you diagnose and prepare a plan to get your foundation repaired as fast as possible. There are many different symptoms that give the professional foundation and wall crack repair contractors at Quality Foundation clues as to the underlying problem causing your cracked or bowed walls.
Cracking foundation walls are typically caused by foundation settlement. This is movement of your home’s foundation caused by shifting soil or hydrostatic pressure pushing in on your foundation walls. Having foundation wall cracks inspected by a professional foundation repair expert is the best way to ensure that you are getting the best treatment possible for the specific problem you are having with your home.
Some signs that you are experiencing foundation settlement and wall crack issues:
- Cracks in concrete floors
- Windows won’t open or close
- Ripping and tearing in drywall (diagonally)
- Doors won’t close or stick and pinch shut
- Wide crack at the top / smaller down low
- Stair-step cracks in bricks or block
Foundation problems get worse over time. The sooner you contact a foundation repair contractor to evaluate the structural integrity of your foundation and the severity of the problem and provide the necessary wall crack repair the better. If you are unsure if what you are experiencing is caused by foundation settlement, contact Quality Foundation in Omaha for a free in-home estimate to make sure your home is safe and structurally sound.
Leaving a cracked foundation wall unchecked will inevitably lead to total foundation failure. When a foundation is beyond saving, it will need to be totally replaced. A foundation replacement is a much more invasive process and is much more costly.
