Foundation Repair Company Dedicated to Home Foundation Safety
LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction Inc., a foundation repair and construction company in Southern California, is urging public awareness of foundation damage and the need to correct it. They are also issuing a checklist to assist in diagnosing foundation problems in homes.
According to Julian Construction, early identification and repair of foundation problems can prevent more extensive damage to a home, and in worst case scenarios can save building collapse.
The checklist reads in part:
1. Uneven or sloping floors
2. Wall cracks
3. Wall separation
4. Wall bulging
5. Wall rotation
6. Nail Popping
7. Floor and foundation cracks
8. Doors and windows that don’t open properly
9. Weak Soil
10. Leaning chimneys
11. Poor Soil Compaction
12. Excessive Soil Moisture
13. Soil Consolidation
14. Poor drainage and leaking roofs
15. Large trees and shrubs growing near the structure
16. Roads, streets and driveways that expand in the heat and push against foundation walls”
If any of the above are suspected, Julian Construction recommends a qualified foundation specialist come out to the home to assess the situation to determine if there are any underlying foundation problems already present or if it is indicated that a problem may develop.
Julian De La Torre, founder of the company, stated “I’ve seen what an unstable foundation can cause down the road for a home. Having foundation problems makes a home much less safe and very potentially dangerous in an earthquake. If a home has an unstable foundation it needs to be fixed at once for the safety of the home.”
