The rollercoaster of emotions associated with buying a new home are second to none, with excitement and uncertainty always looming in the distance. And while the process is mostly a positive experience, there are always incidents that seemingly arise out of the blue. As many property buyers do, conducting a private inspection has become somewhat of an integral piece to the process. But what happens when weeks, months, or even a year later, a major structural issue is discovered, and you’re suddenly on the hook for the repairs? In a time that may feel like a bad nightmare, know that there are options for a remedy that provides an effective solution to the issue.
It’s important to understand first the reasoning behind the damage, how it occurred, and what it means for your home. In many cases, there are important variables that contribute to these issues, and many of them may not be your fault. Moisture being drawn out of your soil is very common, and this can be caused by dry temperatures, trees, and other uncontrollable factors. Additionally, prior plumbing issues and faulty drainage can be the root cause of a change in soil composition -- all of which can cause terrible damage underneath your feet.
What Can You Do?
Each specific case is different than the next, and the level of repair you may need is subject to a few variables. Your first and most logical move is to call an expert who is qualified to assess the issue in a proper manner and recommend a swift and effective solution for your home. Depending on the level of foundation damage, soil and other factors, there are a number of viable options that can be applied to your specific home -- all with one goal in mind.
