Residential Foundation Repair

When you invest in a home, you want to make sure that it stays structurally sound for many years to come. That is why it is important to keep an eye out for signs that there may be foundation problems. Foundation problems can happen because of several different reasons. Some of the causes of foundation problems are:

  • Poor Soil Compaction: If the soil was not properly compacted at the time of construction, the soil will create voids and shift. This causes the foundation to also shift and move.
  • Expansive soils: Excessive moisture in soil will cause it to swell and loss of moisture will cause the soil to shrink. As the soil is constantly shifting, so is your foundation.
  • Mature trees with roots and other vegetation - Trees and bushes that are close to the foundation will draw the moisture from the soil, causing the soil to shrink and create voids beneath the foundation. This will cause the foundation to sink into these voids.
  • Weak bearing soils - Some soil is not capable of carrying the load of a structure.

Whatever has caused your residential foundation problem, it is important to have the entire structure inspected by a professional foundation repair contractor. My Foundation Repairs has foundation repair contractors that will come and give you a free inspection and see if you are in need of foundation repair.
