Foundation Problems Can Be The Result Of Climatic Conditions
Extreme changes in temperature is often a leading cause of many foundation problems. As temperatures rise to levels the area has not seen before, then the soil starts shrinking. Combined with dry winds, soil moisture starts evaporating. That makes a foundation sink, and if there happen to be voids in any spaces between the footings and the actual dirt, then the foundation’s very strength can be compromised.
Foundation Problems Are Sometimes The Result Of Soil Conditions
Soil conditions are something that impact foundation problems, which can lead to the need for foundation repair, given that soil lays under the foundation of the home. Soil on, under, and even around a property is going to undergo constant changes over time, leading to foundation cracks, settling, or even shifting. We’ve noticed this time and again over many years, so when we see problems in a foundation, we look at the soil around it.
In an area with expansive clay soil, then foundations often suffer problems. Soil that has higher clay content is able to absorb more water as compared to other soils. When the soil dries, there is settling in the foundation. This continuing cycle of absorption and drying results in foundation movement, which can generate cracks or additional damage that might dictate the need for some foundation repair.
Drastic changes in climate can also impact a home’s need for foundation repairs. Knowing the local history of climate changes is good in determining how problems started, so we can know how to fix them.
When we can determine what impact your local soil has on your home, we can also determine the right repair methods and then apply them. We can even prevent future issues to save you time and money in the future.
