Your home’s foundation is the most important part of the home as it is the base of the entire structure. When foundations start to fail, it is important to have a professional inspect it. The experts at WCI Basement Repair can come and inspect your home in Odebolt, Iowa and the surrounding areas for foundation problems. There are several signs of foundation failure in and around your home to look for including:
If you see any of these signs of foundation failure, contact the experts at WCI Basement Repair in Carroll, Iowa. We serve the entire area for foundation repair.
Foundation failure is most likely caused by soil-related issues. The soil in Iowa is expansive soil which means that it is prone to movement and shifting depending on the water content. When the soil gets wet, it heaves and when it does not have moisture, it shrinks. This constant shifting of the soil causes your foundation to also shift and move.
We use underpinning products such as push piers and helical piers to lift and stabilize your foundation. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil to a more stable soil layer. Then the entire structure is lifted onto the piers and back to its original level. This will keep your foundation stable for years to come and increase the value of your home.
