If you live in Aurora, Illinois, you are aware of the ever-changing weather conditions. In the summer you may experience periods of drought. In the spring, periods of rain. The winters can be harsh with ice and snow. This constant change in the moisture content in the soil beneath your foundation can cause structural damage to your foundation. As the soil becomes oversaturated, it will heave and swell and when the soil becomes dry, it will shrink, creating voids. All of this shifting of the soil causes your foundation to shift and settle.
If you look around your home, it is important to understand some of the signs of foundation problems.
If you see any of these signs, it is important to contact a foundation repair specialist as soon as possible. The sooner a foundation problem is addressed, the least amount of damage that will occur to your structure.
