Living in the South, we all know the summer months bring with them numerous rainstorms...usually, on the day you want to go to the beach! But these storms don't just interrupt plans for outdoor activities, they can also cause damage to the foundation of your home.
If you have experienced water seeping into your crawlspace or basement, it could be causing damage to your foundation. Mold, wood rot, and sagging or uneven floors are all issues that can be caused by water seeping into your home. Heavy rain can also cause the foundation to settle as the soil around your home expands and contracts, resulting in cracks or bowing of your foundation walls.
These are issues that will not resolve themselves, and will in fact get worse over time, costing more time and money to fix. Luckily, the experts here at Lowcountry Foundation Repair can provide custom solutions for your foundation concerns. Whether it is sump pumps to collect and pump water away from your home, our CleanSpace Encapsulation System to protect your basement or crawlspace from moisture caused by humidity, SmartJacks to stabilize your floors, or piering to lift your home and prevent additional settling, we have a solution for you!
If you have concerns about water damaging your foundation, call Lowcountry Foundation Repair and we will send one of our specialists out to conduct a free inspection and provide a same-day custom quote for your home. For peace of mind, don't delay, call Lowcountry Foundation Repair today!
