Iowa Winters and Your Foundation

Iowa Foundation Repair

Foundation RepairsIf you live in Iowa, you know that the winter months bring snow to the Midwest. As the snow starts to melt, it turns into excess water. The soil becomes saturated and water seeps into small cracks in your foundation walls. Overtime, your foundation may settle or shift due to water beneath your foundation. Look for obvious signs of foundation failure such as misaligned doors/window, wall cracks, bowing/leaning walls, leaning chimneys, and a cracked slab. If you have any of these signs, you need to hire a professional to repair your foundation before the problem gets worst. At WCI Basement Repair, we will assess your foundation issues and make a plan for waterproofing your basement.
