Foundation Repair Issues to Look for This Summer Southwest Marietta, GA
man repairs the foundation

The summer heat, along with weather conditions during the winter, can put your foundation at risk for damage. Spring rains can cause soil movement that can shift your foundation out of place. To avoid expensive repairs, you can examine your foundation to detect a few early signs that can point to serious issues in the future. You should have your foundation professionally inspected at least once a year to protect your home and household. Here are three common foundation repair issues to look for this summer.

Visible Cracks

Visible cracks can be a sign of shifting in your foundation. When you are performing an inspection this summer, examine both the interior and exterior of your home. These cracks may appear along doors, windows and your floor. Any cracks larger than hairline size may need foundation repair from an experienced professional. Custom solutions like push resistant or helical piers can be installed to protect your home from foundation cracking in the future.

Plumbing Leaks

Plumbing leaks can cause expensive damage to your foundation. You may need foundation repair if you notice puddles of water around your foundation or a significant rise in your water bill. A hydrostatic test can help detect problems with pressure or the structural integrity of your pipes that are leading to any plumbing leaks.

Sticking Doors

Any changes to the natural movement of your doors can signal foundation repair issues. You may notice your door sticking when you try to open it or have difficulty with locking. Your doors may open or close independently. These are signs of foundation shifting. You may want to reach out to an experienced professional for an inspection and any necessary foundation repairs.

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

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.
