Titan offers foundation repair services. Your home’s foundation may fail due to fracturing as the house shifts and settles. Over time, a house will sink into the ground, which can cause cracking in the foundation if it settls unevenly. For example, post and beams often rot and need to be replaced; concrete pier or steel pilings can become uneven and need to be adjusted; concrete slabs can become cracked and need to be patched. Repairs could be needed if your home has doors and windows that stick or don’t open or close properly, cracks in exterior walls, cracks in interior walls and ceiling. As the house settles, it can experience uneven floors, leaning interior walls, and separation of walls from adjoining walls, floors or ceilings. All of these issues can lead to cracks in the foundation. If repairs are not addressed in a timely fashion, it can lead to broken water or sewage pipes, basement flooding, or more severe damage from earthquakes. Most often, these repairs require an inspection, plans drawn up by a licensed structural engineer, and a permit pulled from the local building department. Since earthquakes are common in California, foundation repairs and earthquake retrofits are very important to preserving your home’s resale value and structural integrity.
