Your house’s foundation can begin to crumble with the environmental strain, but at Residential ResQ, we know exactly how to fix cracks in concrete. We can ensure that the next time a snowstorm rolls through, you don’t have to stress about whether or not your house will collapse.
Just like a family, a home should be secure and united. If the foundation of your house falters, you can risk the consequence of having parts of your home collapse. But how exactly can you tell if the foundation has issues? Some signs that point towards a weak foundation are sloping floors, leaning chimneys, cracks in the walls or ceiling, and sticking doors or windows. If you notice any of those, you should immediately get your foundation checked. The longer it goes untreated, the more time it will take to repair the more money it will cost.
Fixing the damages embedded in the foundation is foremost, but understanding why it is happening is vital. There are four main reasons why cracks are settling around your home. Hot and dry weather, like summer temperatures, can lead to the soil pulling away from the foundation, ultimately making your house begin to sink. Another reason is Transpiration; big plants and large trees with extensive roots can suck up most of the water from the soil during dry months, making the soil pull away once again. On the opposite note, improper drainage can cause settlement issues. Not having the correct downspouts, lawn grading, and other drainage necessities, the soil around your home can soak up too much water, leading to erosion or upheaval. Lastly, poor building site preparations. Improper steps to ensure the stabilization of your home can cause a series of issues, such as improper drainage and erosion, which ultimately affects your foundation.
