"It's Not A Big Deal" Can Turn Into A Bigger Deal Down The Road
Life is crazy at times with careers, family, pets, and house upkeep. Many of us go through the week and all of a sudden it's the weekend again! Time goes by fast and things change consistently. Sometimes, as homeowners a little crack turns into "it's not a big deal". The problem is, through our busy lives, we start to notice these little cracks less until they become larger cracks and "how long has that been there?" cracks.
And now the "it's not a big deal" becomes "this might be a big deal".
After time, your home is slowly settling more, being affected more and more from weather and humidity. Sometimes, these things we can't control slowly affect our homes starting with small cracks, the start of sagging or bowing, or even sinking of porches or stairs. The picture below shows an example of a tiny gap that has been created over time. This small space on the porch is actually created by a BIG problem in the crawlspace!
For this home in Fallston, MD, helical piers were needed to stabilize and bring the home back to its original position. The piers' round shaft design has a high resistance to bending and is made of galvanized steel, which will not rust. These piers reach greater depths than other options to support your home, which means they extend past troubled soils. With helical piers, you can permanently stabilize your home, regardless of the weight of the structure.
So if you have any concerns about your "it's not a big deal" foundation cracks or gaps, give us a call to schedule your free estimate. If you need a little support help, we can stabilize it before it becomes a big deal!
