Our team wants to help you take the best possible care of your basement, and to do that, we offer regular basement inspections. We also understand that it can be difficult to determine whether something that you’ve noticed is a real problem that needs to be inspected or not, so we have put together this article to provide some guidance on the subject. If you see any of the following signs in your basement, you should call us to arrange for a professional basement inspection.
- Your Foundation is Cracked. One sign that you have a basement problem is the presence of cracks in your foundation. If you notice any cracks or other damage around the exterior of your home, we encourage you to arrange for a basement inspection in order to determine the scope of the damage.
- You Have Leaks. Another sign that you need a basement inspection is leaks in your pipes or anywhere else in your water system. Moisture can do all kinds of damage to your basement and foundations, so it’s best to have these areas inspected by experienced professionals in order to determine what, if anything, has actually been damaged, as well as get a sense of how to fix it.
- Your House is Too Humid. A third sign that you may have a basement problem is excessive humidity in your indoor environment. This is often a sign that there is excessive moisture in the basement, which means that you should arrange for a basement inspection if you notice this kind of humidity in your home.
