Foundation Repair Q & A for Homeowners in South Dakota, Nebraska, & Wyoming

Q&A for South Dakota, Nebraska, & Wyoming Homeowners

Q: Is my Home Experiencing Foundation Repair Problems?

A: If you notice problems such as cracking floors, walls, ceilings, sticking doors, windows, or sloping floors, your home may be experiencing the beginnings of foundation failure. To be sure, call us here at Rapid Foundation Repair. We can inspect your home for signs of foundation failure.

Q: What Causes Foundation Failure?

A: Foundation failure can stem from construction issues, like inadequate soil compaction prior to laying the foundation. This occurs when the soil compresses under the home’s weight, leading to foundation collapse. Moisture problems, such as water pooling around the foundation or excessive water causing soil expansion outside the walls, can also contribute. Regardless of the cause, the symptoms of foundation failure are typically easily identifiable.

Q: Can I Reduce the Price of my Home Rather than Get Foundation Repair When Selling? 

A: If you are financing the sale yourself, yes. If not, loaning institutions usually will not close a loan without repairs being scheduled first. Be careful, though. Some states have to sever penalties for those who fraudulently conceal a structural problem. Be open about the problem if you are selling.

Q: Is my Home less Marketable because I’ve had Foundation Repairs?

No, in fact, it is the opposite. If your home has recently had foundation repair from a reputable company, your home, and its foundation are considered stronger after repairs are completed. Therefore, the value will be as if the foundation failure had never developed in the first place.
