News4, San Antonio’s NBC News affiliate, recently featured Olshan’s John Campbell, a veteran Certified Structural Technician. They called on John for expert commentary in their feature about the effect of extreme heat on homes. John explained how record-breaking hot and dry weather can stress your foundation by causing the supporting soil to shrink and pull away.
One of the houses John pointed out in his on-camera segment has settled as much as two inches in just a few months because of weather extremes. According to John, trees and shrubs trying to survive drought conditions draw even more moisture away from foundations, potentially leaving them unsupported and at risk for expensive damage.
Soaker hoses have been an effective do-it-yourself approach to foundation protection, but in this news feature, John points out that extreme conditions may call for more robust interventions.
