There are a number of times when it's a good idea to have your foundations inspected. The most common is when you're in the process of buying a house in the first place. House inspections reveal lots of good details about a home but you'll never really know about the condition of the foundations unless you get a proper structural engineer from Corpus Christi Foundation Repair to check on the potential problems lying beneath the soil. For most people the point of sale is the only time they ever consider getting a foundation inspection but in reality that's not the only time you should consider a foundation check.

Buying a House
Buying a house may well be the biggest single financial investment you make in your life. More than that it is a huge emotional and lifestyle decision that will affect the day to day happiness of you and your family for years to come. So you want to be sure that you know exactly what you are buying into. Foundations are fundamental to a solid home but because they are hidden out of sight under the soil it's hard to know exactly what condition they are in. If the foundations are unsound or have moved then you may have a world of trouble in store so you need to have them professionally inspected before exchanging on the property.
Checking your House
There are a number of things that can affect foundations during the lifetime of a building including subsidence and flooding which can move the soil around the foundations themselves and thereby change the load they are bearing. There are a number of signs that could indicate a building is moving, the most common being cracks, but if doors and windows start showing signs of misalignment then it's time to get your foundations checked. With a free inspection from Corpus Christi Foundation Repair there is no reason to hold off that check - even if it's only to rule out foundations as the cause of the problem.
What to Expect
A Corpus Christi Foundation Repair expert will come to you and without requiring any excavation they will survey the building for any signs of stress or movement to interior and exterior walls and windows as well as using the latest technology in monitors to assess any disruption to floor levels throughout the house. In combination with a full assessment of likely environmental factors our foundation repair surveyor will draw up a full report on work that needs done now, or in the future. For free.
