Changes in weather can bring up some potential problems for homeowners in Newington, VA. As temperatures change, soil expands and compacts. The more this occurs, the weaker the soil becomes. When a house is built, its main support comes from these soils. As soils lose their strength, they can sink and settle. A home’s foundation can sink or settle right along with the soil. This is called foundation settlement. You’ll notice signs within your home that this is occurring. Windows and doors will stick and become misaligned. Chimneys will lean. Floors and walls will become cracked and uneven. If you notice these types of signs happening in your home, do not worry. Our foundation repair experts and products will be able to give your home the support it needs to prevent it from settling.
Water can also cause issues. With excessive rain, the soils around your home can become oversaturated. This puts hydrostatic pressure on your home’s foundation. If this pressure becomes too much to bear, your foundation may crack. These cracks can let in water, insects, and other pests. We can help you avoid such a problem.
