What Your House is Telling You
If you notice any cracks at all, your client’s house is telling you it needs your help. Measuring the width of a crack is the next step in monitoring foundation movement. Rapid changes in the size of a crack should prompt a phone call to a foundation repair contractor; the house needs an inspection before damage ensues or increases. So, look for cracks in brick, cracks on the foundation wall, interior drywall cracks, and cracks around windows and doors. Cracks are clues and help you save the sale if you catch them in time!
If you represent a buyer or seller that lives in the Middle TN, Southern KY, or Northern AL areas, call USS, not just to diagnose, but to provide solutions for any cracks we find. Most of the time, the solution is simple, and the result provides a stronger foundation than the home had in the beginning!
