When the soils around your Mount Vernon home’s foundation become saturated, they can place what is called hydrostatic pressure on it. When this pressure becomes too much for the foundation to bear, it can crack, letting water, and insects and other pests into your home. A change of temperature is also dangerous for settling foundations. As temperatures vary, soil expands and compacts, weakening over time. This soil provides the support that a home is constructed on, so when it gives out, your home’s foundation may begin to sink or settle.
There are a few signs that your home may be in need of residential foundation repair. Your floors and walls will begin to crack. If you have a chimney, it might lean. Windows and doors may become misaligned and difficult to open. If you have noticed any of these signs, or simply want to have your home’s settling foundation looked at, contact us.
