Shifts in soil around a home can create uneven settlement and severe water damage in a home without the support of a deep foundation system. Water can cause soil to shift or wash away completely and shift a home’s foundation. Poor water drainage is one of the main causes of foundation problems, but avoidable with a proper foundation solution.
Drainage should be installed to allow water to run away from the foundation.
While seasonal rains may produce water in basements, consistent water intrusion is commonly a signal of a much larger foundation issue.
