When you notice signs of foundation damage in their homes, you might be tempted to overlook or ignore these issues. You might even seal or paint over the cracks, holes or other telltale signs of foundation damage. However, ignoring these signs doesn’t make them go away. You’ll still face the repairs costs, which may even worsen the longer you wait.
Here are five reasons you should call WTX Foundation Repair when you suspect problems with your home’s foundation.
Foundation Damage Leaves Plumbing Issues & Higher Water Bills
Ignoring foundation issues for a long time makes parts of your home sink. This sinking can cause the house’s structure to weigh down on pipes and drain lines, breaking or shifting them entirely. These broken pipes can inevitably leak into and underneath your floors, walls, and ceilings. This wasted water can skyrocket your water bill and cause low water pressure throughout your home.
Foundation Damage Leads to Costly Electrical Bills
Cracks in your foundation, walls, and ceilings can let hot or cool air leave gaps for cold or hot air to get in or out of your house. So, it’s more difficult to maintain a consistent temperature. In addition, as you overwork your systems, you may be putting too much stress on your AC or heating units.
Foundation Damage Means Bigger Problems
As you attempt to cut costs, you’re just ignoring signs of foundation damage. But ignoring the problems doesn’t make them go away. It just leads to bigger problems and more expensive repairs down the road. Instead of just a hairline crack here and there, you may find yourself with doors that won’t close properly, uneven floors, and even mold. Even worse, when you decide to schedule repairs, the repairs will likely take much longer to finish.
Foundation Damage Allows Space for Pests to Enter
Cracks in your walls and foundation allow insects and small animals to enter your house. When this occurs, infestations can develop quickly. You don’t want to deal with an exterminator to take care of pests while also trying to fix your foundation.
Foundation Damage Can Foster Damp Environments & Mold
When your property’s foundation begins to fail, moisture from the soil seeps into the home’s internal structure, making it easier for mold to grow, which is extremely hazardous to the health of your home’s inhabitants.
