There are many reasons why a home’s foundation will start to deteriorate: age, weather, bad structure, etc. Whether you’re seeing this through visible damage or an increase in flooding issues, it’s never a good idea to ignore the problem. Letting it go unfixed could be the deciding factor between whether you need foundation resurfacing or a foundation replacement.
Unfortunately, a damaged foundation does not get better on its own. If you’re seeing damage, then it will only get worse as age, weather, and structure continue to play a part in its integrity. Plus, if you let it go on for too long, it can start to affect the interior of your home as well. Homeowners might notice cracks in the walls, wet or damp floors, ill-fitting doors, and other issues. In the long run, this will only cost more—especially if when you try to sell your home. A home inspector will notice those types of problems and it could become a deal breaker to interested buyers. It will benefit homeowners more to stay on top of foundation damage and have it assessed by experts.
When our foundation experts are called in for an assessment, we’ll let you know about how drastic the damage is to your home. Is it a result of age? A bad drainage system? Or is it a structural issue? After a thorough inspection, we recommend a course of action. Luckily, we can typically proceed with a foundation repair without too much disruption to the home.
In this case, our resurfacing process included:
- Removing any debris to inspect the damage.
- Repairing any damaged blocks with a core filler or replacements.
- Installing heavy gauge metal lath and corner mouldings.
- Applying a base coat of mix to the entire foundation.
- Applying a final base coat to complete the new, smooth finish.
