)-- Julian Construction Inc., (http://www.julianconstruction.com/), a foundation construction and foundation repair company located in Southern California, has issued a public statement to clarify any possible confusion or uncertainty on the subject of foundation repair vs. foundation replacement, and when each is needed. The company also stressed the importance of routine foundation inspection to ensure home safety.
The founder of the company, Julian De La Torre, stated “There are many good reasons for foundation replacement. Some homes were built without a concrete and steel foundation, while others were made of un-reinforced masonry, that of brick or stone. In some cases, the original concrete was made of poor quality materials or has been badly deteriorated over the years.
“Sometimes you do not need a new foundation, but you have breaks in your foundation due to prior earth movement, age or even poor drainage. Left unchecked and uncorrected, these breaks in the foundation and stem wall can lead to additional cost and, in many cases, pose a risk to your structure.
“A foundation repair expert can conduct an in-depth inspection of your property to make sure there are no existing situations that need addressing. Someone that is skilled in fixing foundations will be able to analyze the location, size and pattern of wall cracks to determine if there are any underlying problems, and look for other indicators of foundation damage. Staying alert to potential foundation issues can be vital, and help prevent future structural trouble,” concluded Julian.
