HOME FOUNDATION Powered By Docstoc
					The most important part of a house is the foundation of every home. The foundation
of a house brings the responsibility of bearing the entire load weight of the home. If
there are any problems with the foundation, it can definitely cause great damage to a
person’s home and can lessen the value of the home and puts the safety of every
member at risk. Most of the time, the foundation of a home and its maintenance is
disregarded specially when there are no problems that can be seen visibly. Just like
your regular maintenance inside your home, it is important to include regular checks
on the foundation of your home to determine whether or not there is any foundation
deterioration. One essential sign that there is a problem in your foundation is when a
person can see cracks in the basement. Some are cracks in the walls, doors, ceilings
and walls.
  Cracks may cause corner separation and also a sagging roofline. What are the causes
of cracks? These cracks may be due to a soil movement, non compacted fill, poor
construction or poor site drainage. When a person has noticed all of these problems in
their home, it is now time to call for an expert or contractor such as a foundation
repair contractor for any advices and tips. These foundation repair contractors can also
find out if there are foundation damages that have not been seen yet. These expert
professionals or contractors can help in determining the source of damage and the
contractor can give best solutions for these problems.     Repair solutions for these
damaged foundations and the cost of the repair depends on the cause and extent of the
damage. The most expensive repair solution is for the exterior work. This is expensive
since excavation and exposing of the foundation walls is done to install waterproofing
materials to prevent the water from seeping into the cracks that can add further
damage. The most common method and less expensive is the repairs in the interior.
Foam injections have been used for almost two decades to prevent the seeping of
water in the crack. The foundation repair contractor will inject a urethane that has a
high bonding strength into the crack that cannot be broken easily. When urethane
comes across with water, it will foam up and increases its volume to fill up the whole
crack.
  These are just some of those different foundation repair methods that are commonly
used. But, before all of these techniques, it is always important for one to call for an
expert or a home contractor that will not only do the assessment but can also help in
giving solutions to these problems. They will not only give the best solutions but can
really save you a lot of time and money since you will not encounter these failures
