It’s no question that Michigan is home to one of the harshest climates in the nation. The intense winter snow and heavy summer storms and humidity introduce a lot of moisture to our homes. Unfortunately, Flint homes face a lot of hazards with the climate and soil present in their foundations. It is important to give your foundation some attention to keep it safe from harmful damage.

With that said, here is some information on how soil can damage your home.
Types of Soil and the Issues they Present
Depending on the type of soil your home was built on, you could be more at risk of foundational damage. Settling foundations are extremely common and it is essentially inevitable. Unfortunately, when soil expands and settles, it causes a lot of damage to foundation walls. Soils, such as peat, clay, and silt, hold more water than other types of soil so they are prone to expanding and contracting. The force of these actions causes a home’s foundation to crack or bow.
If these are prevalent issues in your home, or are becoming prevalent, they need to be addressed before the safety of your home is affected. Cracked foundations and shifting walls cause serious damage to your home and they are hazardous to your safety. StayDry® can provide the necessary repairs to keep your home safe from these issues.
