The mere thought of foundation damage probably has you quaking in your boots. It’s every homeowner’s worst fear. If you suspect that you have foundation damage, our team can come out and evaluate the foundation of your Pompano Beach home.
Of course, you need to know the signs of basement foundation damage to be on the lookout for it. Here are a few of the most common signs of basement foundation damage that you might notice in your Pompano Beach home:
Windows and Doors That Sag or Stick
During construction, the builders put a lot of time and effort into measuring and cutting the door and window frames so that everything fits perfectly. However, if your home experiences foundation issues, this may cause the entire home to sag. Of course, unless it’s serious damage, you won’t notice the sagging with your naked eye.
The first sign is usually doors and/or windows that no longer open and close properly. Of course, an issue with the foundation isn’t the only cause. It might be a particularly humid day. You need a foundation inspection from our caring team to determine if there’s actually an issue.
When you have guests, do you do a party trick of setting a ball on the floor and watching it roll to the other side without pushing it? Okay, this might be an extreme example. However, you might notice that your floor is uneven in a variety of ways.
A table that was once stable might begin to move depending on where you place things, or a chair with one leg off the floor. This happens when the floor is uneven. An uneven floor can be a sign of damage to the foundation of your Pompano Beach home.
It’s also possible that there might be another issue behind uneven floors, such as a problem with the flooring or the subfloor. It’s always beneficial to call our team for an evaluation to determine the cause. You don’t want to worry too much, but you do need to act.
Puddles and Standing Water
While you would expect to see standing water in your basement after flooding during a tropical storm, you shouldn’t see it any other time. If your foundation has cracks or holes, the first indication might be standing water or puddles in this low-lying area of your Pompano Beach home.
The cracks and holes allow water to enter your home and basement. It might also be an indication of problems with your water pipes. Our team is ready to come and evaluate the situation. If it’s a foundation issue, we can create a plan to solve the problem.
