If the foundation of your home is very unstable, you will end up having to deal with multiple problems. You need to be very observant and keep an eye out of foundation failure signs so you can address any issues right away. Putting in the work to take care of your home’s foundation will keep you and your family safe. But in case you need more convincing, here are the dangerous things that can happen if you neglect your foundation:
First, there’s structural damage which is one of the biggest dangers of foundation neglect. Next, you’ll also have to face plumbing problems as the foundation shifts and cracks. Third, water will seep into the lowest levels of your home and cause water damage. Lastly, mold and mildew will grow in your damp foundation, leading to a variety of health problems. All of these dangers are expensive and catastrophic.
In this blog post, we feature a foundation that failed because of years of neglect. Let’s see how we handled it.
Installing PT1 Piers to Repair a Foundation in Haltom City
Your house’s foundation is a crucial element to the solidity of your home. When the foundation of your home is sinking or settling, as a homeowner you have a cause for concern. Foundation problems should never be ignored, because things will only get worse. That’s what happened in this home in Haltom City.
A home investor recently bought a property in Haltom City. They were planning to fix the house up to resell it, and in the process they discovered that there was a problem with the foundation. We performed a situation, and determined that the foundation had failed due to years of maintenance neglect. What started out as a smaller foundation problem had now turned into a bigger one.
To secure the structural stability of their home, our team installed 26 piers from our PT1 System. This system carries a service agreement, which allows us to lower the upfront cost of these piers for our home investor customers. Normally, a project like this would take a total of two days to complete. But since the foundation was very thin, it took our team only one day.
