How do I Know I Have a Foundation Leak?

For many homeowners, your foundation is something that's taken for granted until there's an issue with it. However, it is responsible for supporting your home's structure, keeping out groundwater and protecting your home from the damage caused by moisture. When it becomes cracked or develops other issues, it's capable of causing a large number of serious problems in your home.

When it comes to foundation leaks, early detection is absolutely crucial. A crack in your foundation isn't going to fix itself, and the longer you wait to have it dealt with, the more severe the problem will become. A small leak can turn into a major problem that could undermine your home's structure, which is why it's important to know what to look for. Here are several indications of a serious problem that are important to know:

Pooling Water

Finding that water is pooling in an area where it shouldn't be is always a sign that something is wrong. If you're walking through your home and notice puddles and there is nothing leaking from the ceiling, it's a sure sign that there is a serious problem. This isn't just something you may notice in your home's interior, but you should look out for water leaking on the outside of your home as well.

Higher Water Bills

Keeping a close eye on your water bills is a good way to catch potential leaking issues. If your water bills are suddenly much higher than usual and without an explanation, it could mean a very serious leakage problem.

Warped Hardwood Floors

If water is allowed to accumulate long enough, it will have nowhere to go but upwards. This is when you may start noticing problems such as warped hardwood floors. It's important to be on the lookout for this, as it can be very expensive to repair your flooring if the problem is allowed to worsen. If you have carpets, check for random damp spots, or in more severe cases, mold and mildew.

If you notice any of these signs important to get in touch with an experienced professional right away to ensure the problem is dealt with quickly and effectively. Give us a call right away to set up an appointment.
