Foundation Solutions

Interview with Richard Piccirilli

Q. How do you know if you have foundation problems?

A. Every home has a different situation with its own solution.  All homeowners want the fastest and least expensive solution. Things to look for would be step cracks in bricks or separation of caulking between brick and siding next to doors or windows. Other signs would be door or windows sticking, cracks in drywall/plaster, unlevel floors, and bowing walls. Water Damage: Efflorescence on walls (white flaking), water stains and mildew smells are also signs.

Q. What is the fastest and easiest solution? 

A. Call a foundation repair company.  Foundation repair companies offer services for all types of foundations, including basement foundations, crawlspaces, and concrete slabs. They can repair uneven foundations, cracked foundation floors, and walls, sinking floors, and anything else that can go wrong with your foundation. 

Q. What can happen if the problem is not fixed or not fixed properly?

A. There could be further damage and a rise in cost for the repairs. An improper diagnosis could lead to more damage and cost to your home.
