With the combination of quick building, the potential of flooding from the river, and changing temperatures, homes in Great Falls are at risk for foundation problems and basement flooding. We are your commercial and residential foundation repair service provider. We are here to help you solve and avoid such problems for your Great Falls home or business.
When homes are built, they rely on the soil around them for support. Because of this, ground preparation is extremely important when building. Because the population has grown so quickly in Great Falls, it is important to keep an eye on your home’s foundation to make sure it has the support it needs. A settling foundation can cause damage throughout the house.
The changing temperatures throughout the seasons may also be a problem for Great Falls homes. As temperatures change, the soils surround your home expand and compact. The more this happens, the more those soils weaken. Eventually, this may cause your home to sink or settle. Watch for sticking doors and windows, cracks in your floors and walls, and a leaning chimney. Rain may also cause foundation problems. As the soil becomes saturated, it places hydrostatic pressure on your foundation. Over time, this pressure can build and cause your foundation to crack. If you notice or want to prevent these problems, contact us. Our professionals are here to help.
A wet basement is always a hassle, but it can be avoided with the right approach. By installing an interior drain system, exterior drain system, sump pumps, or fixing cracks in your floors and walls, you can keep your basement dry. Not only is a flooded basement a mess to clean, but it can also damage your belongings, endanger your health, and weaken the structural supports of your home or business.
