With age and due to outside sources, it’s not uncommon for a home to require updates from time to time. But those damages may be out of sight, and thus, out of mind. But there may be more signs than you realize. Take it from us and see what warning signs your home is telling you. You never know if foundation repair may be what your home in Livingston needs.
Is Your Roof Leaking?
In Louisiana, we’re no strangers to water, but any type of roof leak could cause anyone to panic. And while the obvious thought would be that you simply have a small roof repair to handle, there might be bigger problems on your hands. In fact, the issue at hand could be under your home.
But how can a foundation problem cause roofing issues? It’s actually really easy. When a foundation has damage, it can cause the ground to shift. If the ground is shifting, it can cause the house to move, and if the house moves, it can damage the roof. And this damage is due to the fact that this movement doesn’t shift your house evenly. Random movement can create enough stress to cause roof damages. So if yours is leaking, look down below!
Need Some Landscaping?
Have you noticed a few dips in your yard, especially when it’s raining? Or perhaps, you’ve noticed you don’t have proper drainage. Putting in the proper drainage and providing a way for water to flow away from the home during storms is the best way to prevent and stop foundation damages. With the way that the soil works in the region, standing water soaks into the ground. And if one part of the ground is shifting while another isn’t, it moves your foundation unevenly, causing damage. So it’s always best to fill in any dips before major damage occurs.
Look at the Walls
Foundation damage doesn’t just affect the bottom of your home. It can also cause issues inside of the house. Have you looked around and seen an odd sort of sagging to your floors? Or perhaps cracks in your walls? That’s most likely your foundation calling out for help. If you notice some damages that fit the bill, give us a call!
