But the Inspector Says Those Cracks are Normal

Atlanta Home Foundation RepairWe hear it over and over again, customers meeting with our team of experts who tell us, “Well, our inspector says that those cracks in the brick are normal and just to watch them.” And our response will be, “You can repair them, or you can watch them do serious damage to your home.”

At Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair, we have been in business for 85 years for a reason: we do not take shortcuts. Everyone on our team is an expert in foundations and masonry, and we know that when outside walls of a home begin to crack time is of the essence. Home foundations in the South are very susceptible to problems with settling. Take the winter we are in right now in 2015 – we go from days in the mid to upper 60s followed by days in the mid to upper 20s. This drastic temperature change that can occur within the same week allows soil to expand and contract considerably in a very short amount of time. Dynamic soil movements can cause unacceptable home foundation problems, especially when homes have any type of structural foundation design problems. Track builders tend to throw houses up at an incredibly fast rate here in the Atlanta area. This short time span does not allow always for proper curing of the foundation walls in conjunction with the expansion and constricting of the soil.

If you see any cracks in the outside walls of your home, please call Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs today. Sure, there’s a chance that your inspector is right and those cracks are normal. However, the majority of the time that is not the case. We offer free quotes to our customers and we guarantee everything that we do. We are not focused on how much work we will be doing at your home in order to make money. Our focus is on providing you with the best services with permanent solutions at the very best value. Those cracks in your brick signify something. Let the experts in foundations and masonry make the call.
