A DRY FOUNDATION IS A HAPPY FOUNDATION

Foundation Maintenance

Keeping water away from your home’s foundation is an important part of maintaining your home’s structural integrity. Water can cause soils to expand and contract as well as do damage to the interior of the home should it flood.

Keep your gutters clean and make sure downspouts will divert water to a place where it can drain away. If your home is equipped with a sump pit you may want to install a pump, or if you have a pump make sure it is operating properly. If your basement has a drain be sure it is clear in the event that you have an interior water leak, such as a broken pipe.

    I never realized that water was so horrible for the longevity of our foundation. My wife and I have realized that there are some cracks in our basement walls and we are worried about the foundation now. We need to find a professional that can inspect the foundation for water that is damaging and soiling it.
