Traverse City: Common Foundation Issues
In general, some degree of settling can be expected with your home’s foundation. However, this type of problem can easily escalate and put your home at risk of severe damage. Depending on the type of soil your home was built on, in combination with the midwest climate, your home’s foundation could receive unnecessary and excessive force. Soils like silt, peat, and clay all retain great amounts of water, which causes these soils to expand and contract with changes in temperature. When this occurs, foundation cracks and bowing walls are soon to follow.
Both concrete cracks and bowing walls can wreak havoc on your home. While they are common and even inevitable, foundation cracks need to be addressed promptly. Otherwise, they could begin to spread and crumble, ultimately allowing moisture into your Traverse City home. Bowing walls, which are often more concerning, can directly affect the structural integrity of your home. When bowing walls are a factor, everyone within the home could be at risk for danger, warranting the need for foundation repair. Needless to say, foundation issues need to be taken care of immediately. Fortunately, StayDry offers a range of services to keep your Traverse City home intact.
