What Causes Foundation Damage

Foundation damage can be caused by a variety of issues, including soil erosion, excessive moisture, and inadequate drainage. These problems can build over time and can be difficult to detect. The damage may appear as cracks or strange stains in the basement floor and walls.

More drastic damage to the foundation of your home may also appear after a natural disaster. If the foundation does not drain properly following a storm, then the concrete foundation of the crawlspace can get waterlogged and become a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and fungi.

If you suspect that you have foundation damage, it is important to contact a professional foundation contractor right away. Pure Properties has several solutions to repair foundation damage on both small and large scales.

Consistent Inspection is Key

Once you have permanently installed a system to keep moisture away from your foundation, it is important to verify that everything is functional every 12-18 months. If you have a crawl space encapsulation system installed, it’s a good idea to verify that the linings haven’t been torn by animals, the sump pump is functioning properly, and the dehumidifier is emptied. This can be a daunting task, and maybe a little scary if you don’t like tight spaces, but the team at Pure Properties is here to help.
