Leaks in your home’s foundation can be a major issue, impacting its liveability and overall value. As such, it’s important that you take action on any foundation water damage before it gets worse. Thankfully, the team at FCS Foundation Repair Dallas is one you can rely on to ensure quality, reliable foundation leak repairs.
If you’ve found that a basement leak is beginning to affect your home, it’s one of the key signs that you need foundation crack repair. While a variety of different issues can contribute to flooding and water entering your home, foundation damage is among the most common.
Unless flooding in your area has reached a point where water levels have risen higher than your home’s foundation, cracks and leaks are some of the most likely entry points for water. You could also have drainage tile issues that are leading to water entering your home, which also calls for foundation repairs to resolve the issue.
It’s important to be aware that you can deal with foundation leaks even without any noticeable water entering your home, either. Water can instead stay behind walls and under your floors, causing ongoing water damage.
Watch for signs of mold in your basement, too, including musty air. Visible cracks in your walls are also a sign of foundation issues. The doors and windows in your home not closing properly anymore indicate foundation problems and are the reason to have our team take a closer look.
Check to ensure that faulty water pipes and plumbing fixtures aren’t the cause of your basement leak, either. You could also be experiencing some type of sewer backup. Though these are serious issues, they aren’t related to your foundation.
Regardless of the supposed cause, the experts at FCS Foundation Repair Dallas can confirm whether you’re experiencing a foundational leak and determine which type of foundation leak repair you need with a free foundation evaluation.
At FCS Foundation Repair Dallas, we always recommend that homeowners reach out right away if they have any reason to suspect foundation leaks. Timely foundation repair is the only way to prevent serious damage to your home.
If you’ve already experienced water damage to the foundation of your home, the problems it’s caused will only get worse as time goes on. Small cracks and leaks that let even small amounts of water in today will continue to grow, leading to more serious flooding later on. Water entering your basement can lead to an uncontrollable mold problem, too, with remediation potentially costing upwards of $5,000, depending on the extent of the water damage to the foundation.
As damage continues to accumulate, the structure of your home can be affected. Your foundation can shift in certain positions, putting irregular strain on your home’s structure. Eventually, walls and floors can warp and become potentially hazardous.
Many homeowners wish to avoid the cost of foundation leak repairs, but avoiding it today will only lead to a much heftier repair bill later on. You’ll also see a significant reduction in your property’s value, as foundations are among the most important elements that prospective homebuyers consider.
FCS Foundation Repair Dallas can provide the effective foundation leak repair that you need to prevent that outcome. Find out what our team can do for you today before you find yourself facing even greater challenges.
As soon as you start to notice any signs of foundation damage, reaching out to FCS Foundation Repair Dallas is the best way to get reliable results. Our team has more than 25 years of experience carrying out foundation repairs here in Dallas and in the surrounding areas.
Temporary foundation crack solutions that you can find at your local hardware store won’t deliver the results you need. Your foundation will likely develop cracks in the same area again, only pushing the problem further along, and going with a DIY solution also means that you aren’t dealing with the underlying issue itself.
Our experts will evaluate your foundation and determine whether you need simple leak repairs or additional fixes for more serious issues that caused the leak. We have the experience and equipment to handle any foundation problems you might face. We can seal your foundation to prevent further leaks and provide advanced repairs to address shifting and settlement.
Drainage issues can also be a major factor in any foundation leaks in your home. FCS Foundation Repair Dallas also provides a range of drainage correction systems to keep water out of your home. French drainage systems, channel drainage, and other options can keep water away from your home and pressure off of your foundation, preventing the development of cracks and leaks. We can assess your current drainage to identify any faults.
No matter the root cause of your foundation issues, our trained experts can get to the bottom of it. We provide free foundation evaluations and can let you know more about your foundation repair options.
