Don’t Wait to Fix Foundation Problems Southwest Marietta, GA
Cracked Brick Foundation

Waiting is often the correct choice of action. Procrastination can allow time to gather more information, which can lead to better decision-making. Everyone knows that rushing half-cocked into a situation can result in serious repercussions. But, when you have enough evidence before you, it’s time to act. If your Atlanta-area home shows evidence of settling on the inside or soil erosion around the outside, don’t wait to fix foundation problems.

Why Do Homeowners Wait to Fix Foundation Problems?

Procrastination over needed home repairs is nothing new for many homeowners. Often there are reasonable excuses to justify waiting just a little bit longer before tackling the job. Some of the most common reasons homeowners give for delaying essential foundation repairs include:

  • They are not convinced they have a foundation problem – a door sticking can simply be a worn hinge. Not all interior cracks signal a problem with the foundation.
  • They believe repairs will weaken the foundation – lack of knowledge about foundation repairs can convince some that repairs will remove some of the structural integrity from the home and its vital supporting structures.
  • They believe that foundation repairs lower the home’s value – this is patently false; any repairs or renovations only serve to increase your home’s value, especially those that strengthen its foundation.
  • They believe that foundation repairs cost too much – everything worthwhile requires an investment; an early investment in foundation repair can save much more expense in home repairs later.

Whatever your reason for delaying foundation repairs, every day of waiting contributes more to your Georgia home deteriorating. Foundation problems affect everything about your home.

What Can Happen If I Wait Too Long to Repair My Foundation?

Waiting too long can eventually render your home structurally unsound and unsafe for habitation. The red Georgia clay is notoriously poor soil for drainage. Clay expands and contracts more than other types of soil and is a poor aquifer, meaning that water does not soak through it easily. Rather, water washes away the clay soil over time, leaving a void underneath your concrete slab or footers.

Cracked Brick Foundation

As the soil wears away, virtually nothing is left holding up your home. The tremendous weight involved causes the unsupported structure to sag. Supporting block and brick are stressed and crumble away. Floors sag, walls crack, doors and windows jam and your home becomes unstable and unsafe. As time passes, more damage occurs to literally every structure in the home.

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.

Penelope Greensmith

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

Regina Renee Kalasz

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.
