Here in Iowa, the ground is great for farming, but not as great for keeping a foundation stable – which is why many homes are in need of foundation repair. The unpredictable weather can result in soil shrinkage due to dry conditions or erosion resulting from excess water. Both of these are major concerns, as they can cause the soil beneath the foundation of your home to shift, creating voids under the structure and reducing the foundation’s stability. If the foundation under your home begins to shift or settle, it could lead to major problems such as bowing walls, uneven or sloped floors, foundation cracks, sticking doors, and wet basements. Underpinning your home with quality foundation repair products will ensure the integrity of your foundation. Contact us today to learn more about how we can make your home safer.
