Your foundation is a key part of your home, there is really no debating that. One of the things that is key for us is to be able to spot any developing problems in time. This is going to allow us to set up repairs that may not be the full overhaul situation that it can end up being if we allow the issue to develop. That is why these inspections are so important. Especially in older homes and homes that are on unstable soil. Of which there are actually many around the Glendale area!
We Don’t Always Find Problems
Some people think that if they book an inspection service the company that is providing it is going to forcefully find some type of problem with their foundation. Truth be told we usually find “something”. That something can be tiniest of cracks, it’s very unrealistic to have just a perfect looking foundation especially after a couple of years. Not every single issue that we come across is going to warrant a repair. At least not an immediate repair. Our inspections are meant to give you an idea of what the current state of the structure is. That way you will be able to make smarter decisions moving forward.
What Happens When We Do Find An Extensive Problem
This goes back to what we were just talking about. We know that some people can have very particular trust issues. All that we can do is tell you that we’ve always been honest with our clients all the time. It’s one of the things that actually allows us to stay in business. If and when we do find something that we consider severe we will let you know directly. We can even detail a plan out for what we think you should do. From there you can decide whether you want to enlist our help in solving the matter or you want a second opinion.
How Often Do I Need To Have My Foundation Checked?
Usually, once a year is going to be more than ok. Especially for newer homes. There are certain areas in Glendale though where we do see a little bit more soil movement. There are others homes that have had problems in the past. If your home is older or you live in an area that you know is a little bit less firm, it may be a good idea to check on your home a little more often.
Can You Provide Me With A Legal Document That Proves Your Inspection?
Sometimes insurance companies are going to want proof that your foundation needs to be repaired in order to pay for the service. This is part of the paperwork that we are going to be able to help you with. If you have any type of question on similar matters be sure to give us a call. We can help you work all of these things out. As well as any legal requirements to be able to perform a service and things of that nature!
