The foundation of your home is one of the things that we assume are fine and working as intended, as it is mostly out of sight and out of mind. The truth is, foundations can shift with the changing soil, and can erode a little over time as well as with the climate and the surrounding elements. They could even become less effective or even faulty – which is not ideal. To avoid losing structural integrity, it’s important to rectify this.
Our experts will identify any potential foundation cracks or more serious structural damage, and provide a custom solution to address these; avoiding any further structural damage that can cost you more grief and money down the road.
As your home and the surrounding soil shift, you can often see uneven walls, causing shifting within your home (doors that don’t close properly, etc). We often will raise your home and level your foundation, as we assess and repair any damage and stabilize the surrounding area.
Soil swell or shrink can cause a wide variety of foundation problems. As the soil gets wet around your foundation it can expand or shift, and can cause walls to shift as well. On top of that, when it gets very dry, soil can shrink or collapse a little, which can cause the foundation to shift, erode or crack. Working closely with our geoengineering partners, we will ensure that your foundation is surrounded with optimal soil – to avoid unnecessary swell or shrink.
There are many signs to look for to help identify possible structural foundation issues. It is important to address these immediately upon discovery, to ensure they do not get more serious. Our team of experts can help identify potential issues early on. We will assess your needs, and provide a custom solution to ensure that your investment is protected.
