Your foundation is the most important part of your home. Its primary purpose is to hold your house up, but it does more than just that. The foundation of your house anchors it, insulates it, keeps moisture out, and even prevent insects from coming inside.
Considering all these benefits, ensuring that your foundation is up to industry standards is always worth the effort and the time. That's why locals make sure to reach out to us for foundation repairs, just like this home investor we helped this week. Let's see what happeend.
Unsightly and Possibly Dangerous Cracks in Sherman Home
A home investor looking to purchase a property in Sherman, Texas but it had some minor cracks around the house. Because he planned to rent it out for a long time, he didn't want any issues to develop, so he called us.
Our team went over to inspect the cracks and discovered that some patterns were developing in the measurements. The damage looked concerning! It was a good thing they called us because if your home does not have a solid base underneath it, you will eventually experience a lot more extensive structural damage.
Installing 16 PT2 Piers to Repair a Foundation in Sherman TX
To help prevent the foundation problems from getting worse later on, we decided to put piers underneath the house. We installed 16 piers from our PT2 system under the perimeter of the house in the affected areas. These are concrete pressed pilings that will help lift and stabilize the home. All the work took only one day to complete.
Your home will not last long with an unstable foundation. If you see any cracks, these could mean a bigger problem is behind it that could threaten the safety of you and your loved ones.
Many people neglect and forget to inspect and repair their foundation, resulting in costly repairs down the road. The bottom line is you need to hire an expert who knows what they are doing to inspect your home and detect any early warning signs of structural damage.
