Erosion Control: Foundation and the Environment

Residential homes in need of foundation repair and foundation inspections have an increasing need to prevent stormwater runoff from adversely impacting property and damaging their home foundation. Every day, stormwater runoff can sweep soils away from a property, weakening the soils surrounding the foundation and causing unsettling and property damage. Standing water can lead to harmful expansive soils that may compromise your home foundation’s integrity. Be on the lookout of these common home foundation problem signs.
