Home And Garden Show: Assessing Earthquake Damage

Posted: Updated:

If you've been doing some shaking during our earthquakes, you may be wondering if your house has foundation damage.

There's an expert for that. And we found him at the Home and Garden Show.

We all know, you can learn so much at this Show. Earthquake damage is something we looked into for you. Because if the earth shakes, your foundation shakes and sometimes it can crack.

Foundation repair companies will do a free inspection if you're concerned about your home. This will give you an idea of what they'll be looking for.

"Typical cracks in bricks if you have a brick home. Interior cracks in sheet rock, doors, sticking, gaps next to windows," said Zach Rieves with Power Jack Foundation.

Rieves said it can take two to three days to get a foundation fixed. And keep in mind, unless you have some type of earthquake insurance, that will be your bill to pay.
