Common Foundations Problems

  • Cracks in concrete or drywall

  • Water seepage

What Causes Residential Foundation Problems?

Mainly, the cause of complications to your foundation is the soil it is resting on and its relationship to water. Too little moisture around the foundation and it may settle, or sink, to areas of least dense soil. This causes strain on the structure and cracks in walls and/or cement are often the effect. Too much moisture and it can result in foundation swelling. This cause is generally more serious because the ground soil expands more drastically than it shrinks. However, a proper drainage solution can alleviate this concern before it establishes notable damage.
