KPRC 2 News called on Chris Cates, Olshan Foundation Repair of Houston General Manager, for expert commentary in their segment on weather issues plaguing area homeowners.
Chris explained how extreme heat and extended drought conditions put foundations at risk for damage from increased settling. As supporting soil dries out and pulls away from the house, foundations can shift, sink, and lose their load-bearing capacity.
In this news feature, Chris walks viewers through some of the most common warning signs of foundation damage. He also makes practical recommendations that homeowners can put in place to protect slabs and foundations and prevent more serious deterioration. Foundation repairs can be costly if problems are left unaddressed, and Chris’ tips on foundation watering can potentially save homeowners thousands if they follow a consistent watering regimen.
