Causes of foundation problems
The main cause of foundation problems is shifting soils. Most soil in the US is expansive, meaning it holds a great deal of water which makes it expand and then, when dry, the soil shrinks again. This wreaks havoc on your foundation walls. After a heavy rain, if you lack adequate drainage, there are thousands upon thousands of pounds of hydrostatic pressure pressing against your foundation walls from the saturated soils. Whether you’re in Edinboro or Erie, if there’s a crack in your basement wall, things will only get worse.. What’s more, once the soil dries out and shrinks, it will pull away from your foundation walls, leading them to carry more of the weight of your house.
With helical piers or other foundation piers, wall anchors, crawl space jacks, and other products, we have the right solution to all types of foundation issues.
