Top 5 Reasons to Fix your foundation issues immediately

Here are five reasons you should call FSI Foundation Systems when you suspect problems with your home's foundation.

Peace of Mind

For most people, your home is one of the biggest purchases you will ever make. It is the intangible feeling you get when you are there, a sense of peace, joy from loved ones, and an environment where everyone knows they are welcome.

Foundation Damage Allows Space for Pests to Enter

Cracks in your walls and foundation allow insects and small animals to enter your house. When this occurs, infestations can develop quickly. You don't want to deal with an exterminator to take care of pests while also trying to fix your foundation..

Foundation Damage Leads to Costly Electrical Bills

racks in your foundation, walls, and ceilings can let hot or cool air leave gaps for cold or stifling air to get in or out of your house. So, it is more difficult to maintain a consistent temperature. In addition, as you overwork your systems, you may be putting too much stress on your AC or heating units.

Crawlspaces Can Foster Damp Environments & Mold

When your property's foundation begins to fail, moisture from the soil seeps into the home's internal structure, making it easier for mold to grow, which is extremely hazardous to the health of your home's inhabitants.

Foundation Damage Means Bigger Problem

As you attempt to cut costs, you are just ignoring signs of foundation damage. But ignoring the problems does not make them go away. It just leads to bigger problems and more expensive repairs down the road. Instead of just a hairline crack here and there, you may find yourself with doors that will not close properly, uneven floors, and even mold. Even worse, when you decide to schedule repairs, the repairs will take much longer to finish.
