Many homeowners pay little attention to their crawl space or foundation, unaware of the problems that extra moisture and even serious leaks can cause to their home and foundation. It’s important to make sure that you know about the signs you might see that indicate your foundation or crawl space might need professional attention from a trusted company like Falcone.
It’s not uncommon to find condensation on a window, but condensation on multiple windows in different parts of the home may indicate there is excess humidity as well as potential drafts around your windows or in your home.
If you’re noticing that your floors are colder than they used to be, you aren’t imagining it. A drafty crawl space can allow cool air to sap the heat right out of the floor. Getting a professional to seal it should stop this problem immediately.
Visible mold growth in your crawl space or adjacent spaces is a definite sign that you need your crawl space serviced and sealed against moisture. Mold thrives in dark, moist spaces that stay relatively warm, which makes your crawl space the perfect place. Many molds can even present a danger to your health if inhaled.
A leaky or drafty crawl space can lead to the diminished energy efficiency of the home, overall. It will be more difficult to cool in the summer, and the heat will be less effective when it operates as well. This also puts more stress on the HVAC components, meaning higher maintenance and repair costs.
Everyone has smelled those smells at one time or another. Those dank, musty, funky smells that come along with mold or mildew. If you’re smelling that, and can’t seem to nail down where it’s coming from, you may have moisture issues in your crawl space that require professional attention.
In addition to more conventional crawl space service, Falcone also specializes in structural foundation wall repair. Moisture or leaks in your foundation or basement can eventually put your home’s structural integrity in danger. There are some common ways to identify if your foundation needs professional attention, however, take a look.
If you’ve noticed that your lawn tends to have puddles or standing water after heavy rain, you probably have poor drainage, which can cause increased pressure on the foundation from the sodden dirt, as well as cracks and leaks. The ideal solution is to contact a professional to re-grade the area or add drainage infrastructure to help water drain away from the home.
Two components in your home that depend heavily on the home being level and square are your doors and your windows. One of the big signs that your home is no longer level or that the foundation has shifted is that your windows and doors will become increasingly sticky or become stuck entirely.
In our high-humidity region, drywall and plaster tend to stay relatively flexible compared to much drier regions. This means that if you are starting to see cracks in your drywall or in your plaster, your home’s foundation may have suffered some movement which is causing the drywall or plaster to stretch and crack.
Uneven or even sagging floors can be a strong indicator that your foundation has shifted or been damaged. This can often be seen as a soft spot in the center of the floor, but it can also manifest as an entire room that simply isn’t as level as it used to be.
Walls can bow for a few different reasons, and one of them is a shift in the structure of the foundation. In some cases, the soils around your home can settle and compact, which can leave portions of the foundation unsupported or cracked and unlevel. This can require professional help and heavy equipment to correct.
If you have noticed any of the signs or symptoms we’ve touched on here, it might be time to schedule a professional inspection of your foundation to determine if service or repairs are needed. Reach out today to discuss your needs with one of our local experts, and start planning your solution.
