In the small amount of time that it took to actually jack up the foundation, the vast marjority of those problems either disappeared or diminished. You have to see it so I'm posting some before and after pics. I hope that helps you to see what a difference this dusty, dirty, noisy process made.
Above the door from the kitchen to the garage. See the space at the top and the crack from the corner of the door?
This is the door from the dining area to the kitchen seen from the dining area side.
This is the infamous closet door. That's as closed as it would get. Look at the crack - there was a matching one on the other side and you could see the light through it.
Look, ma!! No more space above the wall!
The most amazing transformation of all - the closet door!
There are still a lot of cracks to patch, but they are closed cracks. I've been told to wait about 60 days to do any patching which is fine with me. It will be cool weather and much better for patching and painting.
I hope everyone has learned something about foundation problems in Houston and the great work that can be done to fix them.
