Whether you own a home or are in the market, purchasing any property
is a major commitment. Thirty percent of your income may go toward
the home's financing each month. With this fact in mind, you want a
property that's nearly pristine from a structural standpoint. Learn how
to decipher between natural, structural settling and real, foundation
problems. You'll have a better understanding of the property as a result.

Measuring the Gap
Observation skills are key tools when you're a homeowner. Walk around the home's
perimeter. Explore every crack that's noticeable from afar. Use a measuring tape
against the crack's width. Any cracks that are larger than one-quarter of an inch wide
should be evaluated for further shifting. Homes that have narrow or shallow cracks
along the concrete pad are simply settling. Every structure settles into the ground,
even several decades after being built. Foundation repair isn't always necessary with
shallow cracks. They must be watched over the years, however. Cracks associated with
settling should remain the same size. Growing crack sizes indicate that unnatural
settling is occurring.

Examining the Walls
Your San Antonio home may have one or two stories. Take time out of your
schedule to examine the walls on each floor. Well-built homes have almost
perfect walls that are smooth to the touch. Your interior walls indicate
foundation repair concerns when cracks are visible at the ceiling's edge.
These cracks may extend vertically or horizontally. In many cases, they
continue to grow at a rapid pace.
Ideally, don't fill and paint over the growing cracks. You're fighting a losing
battle because the concrete pad below will continue to shift and widen
those openings across the walls. Fix the foundation problems quickly and
ward off further wall damages.

Evaluating the Soil
You should head outside to evaluate your soil when settling or shifting is a concern.
The clay soils found in Texas can hold and release an incredible amount of water.
Foundation repair is often necessary when the soil is too volatile. You need
compacted soil with adequate drainage around the home. Take care of the rain
gutters attached to your home so that they're pointed away from the foundation.
Work with a landscaper to alter the ground's slope around the structure if
necessary. Forcing water away from the home reduces the chance of soil shifts as
the foundation remains stable.

Repairing for a Value Increase
Many homeowners are concerned about their properties when any foundation
issue appears. Dealing with the problem doesn't have to spell doom for the
home's value. In fact, foundation repair choices can actually increase the
property's value on the open market.
A thorough repair comes with documentation from the professionals. Show this
documentation to potential buyers. Indicating that there was a problem and it's
been eliminated shows pride in the property. Potential buyers understand that
the home has been recently repaired, which reduces any strain on their financial
commitment.

Hiring Professionals for Foundation Problems
If you're questioning any part of the home's structural integrity, calm your
concerns with a visit from the professionals. Foundation experts look over
the home in its entirety. They'll draw up a repair plan that's specifically
designed for your property. In some cases, the evaluation tells you that no
major repairs are necessary. Document this information to protect the
home's value in the future.
