How Foundation Problems Effect Property Value
Foundation problems can not only be cosmetically unattractive, but they can lower property value and if not repaired, are potentially dangerous. We know you have many options for foundation repair in Houston, and we are proud to say the Fix My Slab is the #1 company for cracked slab repair in and around Houston.
Not sure what to look for when it comes to foundation problems? Here are some basic things to pay attention to:
- Are there cracks in the walls of your home, around the doors or above the windows?
- Are the cracks in your driveway?
- Do your floors seem like they are not level?
- Is your tile cracked?
- Doors or windows sticking?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, you are most likely dealing with foundation problems and will need to have them looked at as quickly as possible to avoid further damage. Slab problems occur when the foundation of the property begins to shift. This shift can cause a variety of problems including, plumbing issues, broken gas or water lines and roof leaks.
If you are selling or buying a home the inspection process involves foundation evaluation and it does play a large role in the inspection. Homes with foundation problems in some cases can still be sold but will effect the final closing cost in order to compensate for repairs to be made after the final sell. There are foundation solutions that can be completed before a home is put on the market that could get your home sold faster. There are several people that are not willing to consider buying a home that they will need to undergo structural changes before moving in and this decreases the amount of people to whom the home is marketable to.
If you own a home and notice foundation problems it is better to start evaluations sooner than later. If you address the issues that are arising it will allow you more time to receive quotes and avoid major damages that could occur if it is not fixed. Major foundation problems can be costly and can often effect the home improvement plans to increase your home’s property value.
