As a Michigan resident, you are probably more than a little familiar with finding foundation cracks in your home. At first glance, you might not think these cracks are an issue that needs immediate attention, however, they can lead to a host of structural problems. Luckily, you can take advantage of foundation repair services from StayDry Waterproofing.

At StayDry Waterproofing, we are able to repair your Royal Oak foundation, no matter how extensive the damage is. Before you call a StayDry hero, let us fill you in on the cause of foundation problems and the foundation repair services we offer to Michigan residents.

Causes of Foundation Problems

One of the major causes of many foundation problems involves the soil beneath your home. The soil settles, which in turn can cause cracks to form in your home’s foundation. While every home can expect some degree of settling, excessive settling is cause for concern.

The type of soil your home was built on will have a great impact on the amount of settling that occurs. Sandy soils are less likely to cause excessive settling. Clay soils, on the other hand, are able to absorb more water, causing it to expand and contract. This can cause your home’s foundation to crack, bow, and even crumble if left unrepaired.

No matter the cause, settling foundations and the issues they present to your Royal Oak home are pretty serious matters. Though concrete cracks may appear minor, they’ll progress with time and eventually begin to widen and crumble, which allows excess moisture into your home. Bowing walls, on the other hand, directly affect your home’s structural integrity. When bowing walls are an issue, you and everyone living in the home could be put at risk for danger. While these issues can be repaired, it’s best you address them immediately before they progress. It’s always best to prevent further issues than have to repair them once they occur.
