Some of the things that cause foundation problems are easy to watch for as a home or business owner. Many things have to do with the weather we experience in Rhode Island. When it is very dry we have to worry about evaporation. If there isn’t enough moisture in the soil around your home it can cause problems. The ground will shrink and pull away from your foundation walls. Your walls depend on the surround soils for support. Transpiration is caused when tree roots take all the moisture from the soil around your home. This can cause foundation settlement. Plumbling leaks and bad drainage as well as too much rain can cause the opposite problem. If there is too much water around your foundation you will find that the water builds up and puts pressure on your foundation walls. This can cause bowing walls, leaning walls, and even cracking of foundation walls and water in your basement or crawlspace.
We perform many types of foundation repairs. Resistance piers can be installed to lift a settling or sinking foundation. Helical piers and wall anchors can be installed as well to add support to bowing and leaning walls, and leaning chimneys. They will add support for years and years to come. We also perform services such as contaiminated soil removal. We assist enviromental firms with the removal of contaiminated soils. If your walls crack due to shifting soils or settlement, we can also assists with this problem. Call us, let us take a look at your foundation for signs of failure.
