Structural repairs are usually the result of an environmental change: the land can shift and settle around your building, or regular flooding can cause masonry to crack and fail. Ground movement and weathering cause shifting, unbalanced, or increased loads to one part of the foundation. This leads to instability in the building, foundation problems and walls moving out of position or cracking. Pacific West Exteriors has been on a short list of professional and experienced structural repair technicians in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland for over 30 years.
Signs that structural repair may be necessary should not be ignored. A qualified and experienced technician will be able to diagnose a problem as routine settling or more serious damage. Some signs that you should talk to a structural repair expert include:
- Leaning House
Look at your house or building from across the street. If it is tilting or leaning, one edge is separating, or the roof looks askew, you should have it looked at.
- Exterior Walls & Entries
Wall separation greater than ½” in size or small cracks running in the same direction can indicate settlement in one area.
- Doors & Windows
Cracks around the edges of windows and doors, sagging lintels on brick homes indicate that structural repair may be necessary.
- Floors & Walls
Drywall cracks greater than ¼” in size, uneven floors near corners, diagonal cracking of the drywall around openings, as well as movement of the flooring.
- Basement Foundation Crack
Significant cracks inside and outside on the foundation, particularly near corners or windows, and any cracks that run the full length vertically or horizontally.
