Ignoring Warning Signs Could Equal Huge Financial Burdens Southwest Marietta, GA

Atlanta GA Foundation RepairThere are many times in life when we all want to ignore the obvious. Perhaps issues seem small as when you bump your knee on the corner of a table and your leg is sore for longer than expected. Or, perhaps you have noticed that the gums inside your mouth are more tender than they used to be. It is easy to ignore seemingly small issues regarding health or oral concerns, but what about concerns related to your home or business property?

Ignoring warning signs of any sort when it comes to the structural integrity of your home can always lead to huge financial burdens in the long run. It is important to be familiar with concerns regarding the structural integrity of your home or business property so that you will be able to identify concerns when and if they should arise. Below are common issues that should never be ignored:

  • A leaky roof. While broken or missing shingles typically causes a leaky roof, ignoring this problem can lead to structural damage within the roof of your home. Structural damage in the attic that rots decking beams, and joints can cause your house to literally fall down upon you.
  • Basement cracks. When you can see cracks in your basement there is a problem, but when water is seeing through these cracks, you have a serious issue that needs attention Yesterday. Poor drainage that allows water to pool around your house will cause the concrete walls of your basement to buckle and settle, compromising the integrity of your entire home.
  • Garage damage. Damage to a garage may seem like it is not a big deal because it is not inside the home’s structure, but this is not true. Because a garage is attached to your home, it will compromise your home. Of course, if you have a freestanding garage, it has its own structural concerns. Very costly damage can occur to your expensive vehicles and to your home by ignoring any concerns with your garage.
  • Chimney leaning or cracking. A chimney that is leaning or cracked can kill people or pets and can damage your home or any home that is in close proximity.
  • Stair-stair cracks in brick. Cracks in the brick that follow a stair-step pattern indicate that structural concerns at dire. It is important to have these cracks looked at immediately.
  • Cracks in walls or around windows/doors. Cracks that are seen inside a home along the walls, ceilings or around windows or doors indicate that there has been a significant amount of settling in a home. This amount of settling typically indicates that the structure of a home is unstable.

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.
