Foundation Repair Solutions for Iowa Homeowners

Foundation Repair – Maintaining the Integrity of Your Home

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 insure the integrity of your foundation, whether it is a crawl space, slab on grade, or a basement made of poured concrete or block.

Recognize The Signs Before It’s Too Late

Detecting the signs of foundation problems in your Iowa home will not only create a safer environment, but may save you money in the long run. Whether you have doors that won’t close, drywall cracks, cracks in concrete floors or stair step cracks in brick, understanding these situations will lead you to the source of the problem. As a home or business owner, you should inspect your foundation frequently and watch for the signs of foundation failure. If you see the signs, it is time to call a professional. WCI Basement Repair can provide you with a free estimate to let you know what your foundation repairs will entail. We can take the worry out of foundation repairs, and restore the value of your home by repairing your foundation.
