Bowed foundation walls and horizontal cracks may be due to pressure that builds in the soil outside foundation walls. Excessive moisture causes soil, especially clay soils, to expand and push against the wall or slab. Drying causes it to contract. Temperature changes, especially when soil freezes and thaws also cause soil movement. Remedies include exterior drainage systems, wall reinforcement and wall anchors, along with structural and non-structural crack repair.
If you notice Cracks on your exterior or interior walls, uneven floors, then it’s time to call Kentuckiana Contracting Services for a Wall SUPPORT REPAIR SERVICE.
Wall support is essential for any home as it provides structural stability and prevents the building from collapsing or shifting. The walls of a home serve as a support system for the roof and upper floors, and they also bear the weight of the building itself. Proper wall support ensures that the load of the building is distributed evenly and can withstand the external forces such as wind, rain, and earthquakes.
Additionally, wall support is important for energy efficiency as walls that are not properly supported may develop gaps and cracks, which can lead to air leaks and energy loss. This can result in higher heating and cooling costs and can also impact indoor air quality. Proper wall support can also prevent moisture infiltration, which can lead to mold growth and other health hazards.
Wall support also adds value to a home. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), structural improvements such as wall support can increase a home’s value by up to 5%. This is because homebuyers are willing to pay more for homes that are structurally sound and have a lower risk of needing costly repairs in the future.
Furthermore, a home with good wall support can also result in lower insurance premiums, as insurance companies prefer homes that have been properly built and maintained. This can result in savings for the homeowner in the long term.
