Taking Care of a Sinking Foundation – ACCL Waterproofing
Although it may not appear so, the earth beneath you is shifting. Granted, it moves slowly enough that most of us don’t notice. While we may not notice, our homes undoubtedly do. Over time, soil movement can cause foundations to become unbalanced or sink, posing serious threats to the home’s structural integrity and livability. Why does this happen, and what can you do to address and resolve the issue? Let’s take a look!
The soil and rock composition where you reside, as well as how the earth was compacted, will determine whether or not your foundation is at risk of sinking. Sinking foundations are frequently related with expansive clay. Gravel, sand, and rock will not move or shift over time in the same manner that it will. This will be a concern in many parts of the GTA and Ottawa. There are a few options for you to consider, thankfully.
HOW TO MAKE THE SINKING STOP:
Your major goal is to put your house back in the right place. This will begin by determining the extent of any existing damage. The foundation will be thoroughly examined for any potential flaws. A pier and beam foundation repair or a slab foundation repair are two options. Which one you choose will be largely determined by the structure of your home. Typically, only one or two sides will require foundation work to stop the sinking. You can reverse the sinking foundation and no longer be at an incline by adding more material and helping to disperse the weight across a larger region.
NEEDING PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE:
You’ll need the expertise and care of a professional foundation repair specialist if you have problems with your foundation sinking. In order to identify the best solution, a considerable deal of thought must be applied. The angle at which the house will sink, the foundation’s structural integrity, and the ideal position to offer additional support will all have to be thoroughly thought out ahead of time. The sooner you get an expert to examine your property, the lower your overall charges will be. Don’t leave it until it’s too late and serious damage to your home’s foundation has occurred.
