3 Early Warning Signs of Foundation Damage Southwest Marietta, GA

Damage to your home’s foundation can happen gradually over time. This damage may not be noticeable at first, unless you know what to look for, and could lead to serious problems in the future. If you want to avoid costly repairs, it is vital to be aware of red flags before any serious issues occur. A trained professional can help you spot potential problems and recommend the best course of action to reduce your risk. Here are three early warning signs of foundation damage to look for to help you protect your home.

Water Damage

Excess water outside your home that fails to drain properly can lead to foundation damage. Drainage problems can occur from clogged sewer lines or leaking pipes. Check around your home for soaked ground and puddles that can create damage. You may also notice signs of rot or mold. Inspect your toilets and faucets for leaks.

Warped Floors and Wall Cracks

Cracks in your wall and warped floors are two of the most noticeable signs of foundation damage. Look for large cracks or zig-zag patterns along interior walls and ceilings. You may also notice nails popping out from your drywall or expansion joint separation. If an exterior wall is pulling away from your home, it could collapse.

If you notice your wood floor has a bouncing effect like a trampoline when you walk across it, this could be a sign of rotting wood underneath or damage from termites. You may notice slanting in certain areas of your home, indicative of a shift in the foundation. Contact a foundation repair specialist immediately for service.

Ill-Fitting Doors and Windows

Are you having issues closing certain windows in your home? Do the exterior doors of your home let in cold air? These problems can result from a shifting foundation and lead to increases in your heating and cooling expenses.

Foundation damage will not go away on its own. If you notice any early warning signs, you may want to contact a trained professional immediately.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
