With the severe dry/wet cycling that we see in Liberty, the clay beneath home foundations is often seen to shrink or contract during periods of intense dryness. Then when the inevitable deluge of rain shows up, the voids created by the shrinking clay allow the perfect environment for sinking or shifting foundations. While the symptoms and signs of these issues will vary, one thing is the same: they will always need professional foundation repair help. Olsen will be able to create the ideal solution for your home from options including:
While the wet/dry cycles of our area make foundation sinking easier, they also put many basement waterproofing solutions to the ultimate test. Making sure the basement of your home is able to repel water in almost any situation is incredibly important to protecting that home long-term. There are some issues that poor waterproofing can make worse, and some that it can lead to directly. Mold is one of the most dangerous risks of ineffective waterproofing, and can lead to significant health problems for the inhabitants of the home, even leading to the home being declared unfit for habitation until the mold is remediated. Some of the indications that your waterproofing has failed will include:
There are so many homeowners today that only spend time or resources on their foundation when it’s time to either sell the home or buy a new one. The natural result of this is homes with foundations that have not been inspected, let alone repaired, in many years. This provides plenty of time for even the smallest of cracks to allow enough water in, to cause thousands in potential damages.
If it’s been a while since your foundation has been inspected or your waterproofing tested, working with a professional now can save you massive amounts of money and hassle later on.
