Petworth, Virginia receives quite a bit of annual rainfall, more than the national average. Though residents usually enjoy the weather, it can cause problems for homeowners, causing them to need foundation repairs. Fortunately, Basement Masters Waterproofing is here to help.
As temperatures vary, the ground expands and compacts. The more this occurs, the weaker the soils become. When a home is built, it relies on the support of these soils. When the ground begins to settle, your home’s foundation may, too. Signs of this include:
Excess rain can cause similar issues. When the ground around your home becomes overly saturated, it places what is called hydrostatic pressure on your foundation. When this becomes too much to bear, your home’s foundation may crack, letting in water, insects, and other animals. We can stop these problems in their tracks or avoid them completely with our residential foundation repair services. Call today for more information!
