Using Digital Cameras to Monitor Foundation Damage - Let's see, most contractors use jack hammers, wheelbarrows, structural rebar and concrete to deal with foundation problems, but a digital camera. How can a digital camera help us fix our building foundations?

Three Methods for Repairing Your House Foundation -
You realize that you have some large cracks and some damage to your building foundation. What are you going to do about the damage and is it even that big of a deal? Here are 3 methods for repairing your house foundation that you might find extremely helpful, especially if you have any damage.

Problems with Hiring Inexperienced Foundation Contractors - The problems with hiring anyone who doesn't have enough experience can be extremely frustrating. If you're planning on hiring a foundation contractor to fix or repair your home's foundation, it wouldn't be a bad idea to make sure that they have enough experience, before you let them start on the project.

Laying out Complex Building Foundations - Laying out a square building foundation can be complicated. How in the world do they lay out some of these extremely difficult or complex building foundations that you see in million-dollar homes today?

Over Digging Creates Foundation Problems - If you're planning on building a new home, make sure that you or your contractor does not over dig the foundations. This can create big problems in the future and many homes today suffer from these types of problems.

Problems with Small Foundation Cracks - One of the biggest problems was small foundation cracks is that they can actually get bigger. The small ones usually aren't that big of a problem, however once they start to get larger or continue growing, now is when you have a big problem with your building foundation.

Structural Foundation Repairs Can Be Dangerous - Over the years I have seen contractors repair damaged foundations with amazement sometimes. How in the heck did these professionals remove the damaged structural foundation to a large building without it collapsing? Like I said, sometimes I can't believe some of the structural foundation repairs that I have seen in the past.

Big Problems Using Concrete Foundation Piers - Building Repairs - A concrete foundation pier can be purchased at almost any lumber yard and home improvement center around the world. They are usually about 12 inches tall and their base is usually about 12 inches wide and works its way up, to a 6 inch square at the top and this usually has two metal brackets sticking straight up out of it. These metal brackets can be nailed onto the post that will be supporting the floor framing.

Take Pictures of Your Growing Foundation Damage or Cracks - I champion people and try to get them to look at their house, at least once a year. One of the easiest ways to inspect your home is to use a home inspection checklist and if you really want a good home inspection checklist, there's a good chance that you are going to need to purchase one. You get what you pay for and don't ever forget that.
