How often do I need a foundation inspection?
How frequently your foundation should be inspected can depend on the quality of soil around your house and whether or not you're looking to sell soon. Homes in the Southeastern Wisconsin area are mostly built upon clay soil, which can develop drainage issues if not managed properly. It's a good rule of thumb to have your foundation inspected at least once a year to ensure any developing concerns are addressed before further damages develop.
Can I sell a house with basement foundation problems?
You can sell a house with foundation problems but it must be disclosed to the seller and there must be mutual agreement that the buyer is accepting the foundation "as-is." It can be difficult to sell a house requiring foundation repair and it can even affect a home's appraised value by up to 15%.
What problems can serious foundation issues cause?
Serious foundation problems can put the stability of your home at risk. Ignoring issues needing repair can lead to further deterioration and added repair expense.
