How often do I need a foundation inspection?
How frequently your foundation should be inspected depends on the quality of the soil around your house and whether or not you're looking to sell your home soon. Homes in the Southeastern Wisconsin area are mostly built on clay soil, so they can develop drainage issues if not managed properly. It's best to have your foundation inspected at least once a year to ensure any developing concerns are addressed before further damages occur.
Can I sell a house with basement foundation problems?
You can sell a house with foundation problems also long as the issues are disclosed to the buyer and there is a mutual agreement stating the buyer is accepting the foundation "as-is." Selling a home in need of foundation repair can be difficult, and it can decrease your 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 foundation problems can lead to further deterioration of your home and added costs for repairs.
