When to Perform House Leveling in San Antonio?

The most common sign that a house is not level is loose, raised, or squeaking flooring. New floors are usually always installed on a level surface and the flooring materials are placed together perfectly. When shifting and settling occurs, the flooring can often sag or raise at pressure points. This pressure can also cause cracks in exterior and interior walls, brick siding, and ceilings, as well as gaps in door jams and windows. You may notice that your doors stick to the frame or your windows don’t shut completely.

Issues that Require House Leveling in San Antonio

Improper Drainage
Extreme variation in seasonal temperatures affect foundations from year to year. In San Antonio, this means that a dry summer week followed by a rainy one is likely to cause big problems for the foundation due to soil absorption. To make matters worse, Texas soil is comprised of mostly clay which is highly absorbent and expands considerably. This added pressure against the foundation can cause cracks which weaken the foundation. When the moisture dries up from the hot San Antonio sun, the soil then contracts, pulling away from the foundation. This contraction can cause additional settling that can be harmful and require foundation repair.

Tree Roots
Trees, although a beautiful addition to any San Antonio home, can drink an extremely large amount of water from the surrounding soil. This causes the soil to contract and the house may experience undesired settling. When it rains again, the soil will expand before the tree will pull the water. This creates a cycle of pressure and release that can cause foundation damage. The solution may require removing the tree before house leveling can be performed. For foundation repair to be successful, trees that are too close to the property foundation may need to be removed. Once foundation repairs are successful, then house leveling will also be successful in the long term.

The Importance of Foundation Leveling in San Antonio!

A level house is extremely important, as its levelness ensures that structure weight is distributed evenly upon a foundation.

In other words, you can’t just treat the symptom if you expect the solve a foundation problem! House leveling can have a big impact on the value of your home, especially if foundation issues are present. By addressing these issues, you make your home more marketable because future foundation problems are far less likely to occur.
