Water Levels & Soil Conditions Can Affect Your Foundation

Water and Soil Conditions Both Affect your Foundation

water level soil condition foundation repair south dakotaSome of the most dangerous things to a home’s foundation are water levels and soil conditions. There are a variety of problems that they can cause. Having high water levels or low water levels can both affect your foundation negatively. For example, high water levels that recede can cause the soil to move and shift, leaving behind voids that foundations may then sink into.

Soil conditions may also have negative affects on your business or home’s foundation. Dry soil that has very little moisture causes shrinkage in the soil. This can also create voids underneath a building’s foundation and cause many different foundation failure problems. There isn’t much way to control the water levels or soil conditions, but there is a way to make sure your foundation doesn’t fall victim to foundation failure. Watch out for these signs and contact a foundation repair contractor here at Rapid Foundation Repair.
