When a home is built, it depends on the support of the soil beneath it. This soil sometimes loses its strength over time, though. As temperatures change, the soil compacts and expands. The more this occurs (and the more quickly it occurs), the weaker the ground becomes. Eventually, if the soil can no longer support the house, it may begin to sink or settle in the ground. This is called foundation settlement, and there are some key signs that it is beginning to happen.
You may notice your that windows or doors sticking or misaligned. Cracks will appear in your floors and walls. If you have a chimney, it may begin to lean. In extreme cases, you will actually notice that your house is leaning. If a settling foundation is caught in action, it can be fixed. Our professional services will save your home from certain destruction.
Excessive rainfall and humidity can cause foundation issues, too. When the ground around your home becomes overly saturated, it will expand and put hydrostatic pressure on your foundation. This pressure will eventually become too much to hold, and your foundation will crack. The saturation of the soil can then make its way into your home.
