There are many reasons why a foundation may be failing. Situations, such as soil shifting, excessive water / moisture, lack of proper water /moisture, and the general integrity of the structure are all things that could lead to a failing foundation. Dry Otter Basement employs an experienced work force that is equipped with the most modern tools available enabling them to deal with any situation, brick, block, or poured concrete foundations. An inspection from one of our project managers will provide you with valuable information regarding your foundation.
Cracks in Concrete, Brick, or Drywall
When Hydrostatic pressure builds up in the soil, or the soils expand with water saturation, over time it can push against your wall and cause bowing. If not solved having a bowing or a leaning wall can cause serious structural damage in the rest of the home.
Minor foundation wall cracks can grow larger and cause a loss of structural integrity or, more commonly, water leakage.
All of Dry Otter’s Foundation Repair and Basement Repair solutions are open to all our service areas including Madison, WI; Rockford, IL and surrounding areas.
