Many Northern Virginia homeowners experience wall failure in their basements. Basement walls can lean, crumble, and become weak due to water and soil pressure. This may require you to install wall reinforcement products. When the soil around your home becomes over saturated with water, it will expand and push against your basement walls. Some causes of soil expansion are:
It’s important to monitor the soil around your home and make sure that there isn’t water built up around your foundation. Make sure that your yard drainage systems and gutters are working properly so that when it rains, water is being directed away from your foundation. You can do this by regularly cleaning out your clogged gutters and making sure your downspouts are extended 5-10 feet away from your foundation. Keeping water away from your home will help protect your foundation from being damaged or weakened. Taking care of your foundation before a problem occurs will save you time and money, in addition to protecting your property and belongings.
