100+ Years of Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Experience
As a Michigan homeowner, you’re probably well aware of the issues our midwest climate can present to your home. That being said, you still may not be aware of the similar issues the soil beneath our homes can present. Depending on the type of soil used beneath your home’s foundation, your foundation walls could be at risk of damage.
When the soil under your Troy home does become an issue, the heroes at StayDry Waterproofing can help. From cracked concrete to bowing walls, soil expansion can wreak havoc on your home, yet we’ve seen it all. With this, we have the experience and skills to address any issue and effectively handle it. Read on to learn more about types of soil and their effects on your foundation, as well as how StayDry can lend a hand when it becomes a problem.
Types of Soil and the Issues they Present
As mentioned, the type of soil your house was built could pose a variety of risks. A settling foundation is essentially inevitable, but expanding soil can make matters worse. This should be concerning, too, as soil expansion and settling can do great damage to foundation walls. For instance, because peat, clay and silt all retain water, they can expand and contract, ultimately putting excessive force on your home’s foundation. When this occurs, cracks and bowing walls are likely to follow.
When these issues do arise, addressing them promptly is essential to your safety and that of your home. Foundational cracks can seem minor to begin with, but they can quickly lead to further problems, as they’ll spread and crumble. Once this occurs, the cracks will allow moisture into your Troy home. Bowing walls can be even more concerning, as they can compromise the structural integrity of your home and leave it at risk for collapse. Whether your home has suffered from cracked foundation or shifting walls, there are solutions—and StayDry can provide them.
