Fireplaces and chimneys are beautiful elements of homeownership, but if they aren’t cared for properly, they can quickly lead to significant damage to your home. Neglecting needed repairs now can lead to much more expensive problems later, including the destruction of your home due to fire and severe water damage to your house.
One of the most important parts of your entire home is its foundation. Many modern homes have a slab foundation, which features a slab of concrete underneath the house. Older homes can have a foundation made from poured concrete, natural stone, brick or other materials. While you expect that foundation to last for the life of your home, water damage caused by flooding and other types of damage can decrease its lifespan. When you learn more about the signs of foundation damage, you’ll know when to call C. Daniels Foundations or another local company for the repairs that your home needs.
