If you have found that your home’s foundation is in need of Structural Repairs in PA or NJ because you see cracks or gaps in the foundation. Call us before the problem gets worse. The unfortunate fact about homes in Pennsylvania and New Jersey is that they are susceptible to the ground becoming unstable.
This is due to the fact that a lot of homes are built on a soil that is made up of multiple layers that allow the water to saturate causing it to shift and move. These attributes along with the fact that we do get a fair amount of rain in the area at times and that does not help your situation.
And rain is not the only culprit when it comes to your home’s foundation! Snow can wreak havoc on your home’s structure by saturating the ground which can cause the foundation walls to bow from the force being placed on the outside walls.
This will make the walls either lean in or bow in from the pressure from the ground being forced from all of the water build-ups. Once you have cracks or gaps in the foundation and the water starts to seep in, the water will start to deteriorate the foundation.
This will start that downward spiral of the foundation becoming more unstable as it starts to lose is holding strength.
As the foundation degrades it will become unable to maintain the load that is placed on it and it will eventually fail! You don’t have to wait till that time comes. Do it now before it becomes even more expensive to repair the structure.
