The effects of weather cycles from dry to wet are easy to identify. You can see and hear the crunchy grass from the lack of rain. However, less obvious symptoms of weather shifts could be lurking under your house unnoticed. Seasonal weather changes change the soil under your home’s foundation by expanding and contracting to accommodate rising and falling moisture levels.
These soil shifts can cause foundation damage by causing it to settle or crack. An Olshan foundation repair specialist can help you determine the best way to assess and repair the damage.
Foundation Damage Factors
In addition to weather changes, there are other factors that can produce foundation damage. Poor drainage, trees and tree roots, and plumbing leaks all contribute to foundation problems. As the foundation cracks or settles, a domino effect of home repair issues will be set into motion.
Foundation damage can cause a multitude of problems including damage to underground plumbing, structural issues, damage to your home’s façade, insulation damage, ceiling cracks, and even roof leaks. Foundation issues can also create more dangerous headaches such as electrical dangers and loose or broken gas and water lines.
