Foundation problems can be the homeowner’s worst nightmare. Unfortunately, it is quite a common problem for homeowners living in central Florida towns, like Ocala. That is because central Florida’s terrain consists of limestone, which dissolves over time as rainfall mixes with carbon dioxide when it seeps through the ground. As the limestone dissolves, the ground settles into the exposed cracks and crevices. This is the underlying cause of foundation problems.
How Will I Know if My Foundation Needs Repair?
You will know if your foundation needs to be repaired because there are very clear warning signs. Floors may slope, and cracks in ceramic tile and vinyl flooring may appear. Your windows and doors will either stick, or not open and close properly at all. Your garage doors may crack or fail to open and close properly. Concrete in your driveway and/or basement may crack. Perhaps, the most common symptom is cracks in interior and exterior walls, particularly over doorframes. However, if you notice these signs, you need to find a company to do foundation repair in Ocala right away!
