With above average rainfall and varying temperatures, Fort Washington, VA has its share of foundation problems for all homes, both historic and new. As temperatures vary, the soils around your home expand and compact. The more this occurs, the weaker the soil becomes. These soils are what your house was built on. When they lose their strength, your home may begin to sink or settleinto them. A settling foundation can lead to damage throughout your home, endangering your house and your well-being.
You can tell this is happening to your home if you notice sticking doors and windows, cracks in your floors or walls, or a leaning chimney. You may even begin to notice that your home itself seems to be leaning. This is nothing to take lightly. If you notice these signs, contact the residential foundation repair experts at Basement Masters Waterproofing immediately.
Water can cause other foundation problems. As the soil around your home becomes saturated, it puts hydrostatic pressure on your foundation. When this pressure becomes too much to handle, your foundation will begin to crack. If you’ve noticed this happening, or want to prevent it from happening, give us a call. We’ll be happy to help.
