Foundation Repair

When the foundation of a house needs to be repaired, it more or less is an indicator of the fact that major damage has been done. Foundation repair occurs as a result of movement in the soil which can either lead to a shrink or expansion in the soil particles. When the soil settles after the movement, as a result of the shrink, the mortars or joints in the foundation are affected as they would be out of place. This then results in cracks in the wall or floor. It is advisable to repair foundation damages as soon as they are noticed to prevent it from worsening. 

Other things that can cause Foundation Damage

Apart from movement in the soil, other things can also cause foundation damage. One of these is inadequate plumbing or drainage facilities. During the movement in the soil, if the damage is done to one of the pipes, water can leak out, damage the foundation and even cause flooding. Also, the soil type is another factor that can cause foundational damage. Clay soils for instance are more prone to foundational damage. Earthquakes, floods can also cause foundational damage. If you have experienced any of this, it is advisable to consult with a professional to check your foundation.
