Foundation repairs in the summer
Sleight Pages 23

Warmer weather means trips to the pool, park, and maybe even a vacation. However, it is also the optimal time to conduct home improvement projects. That includes foundation repairs. The warm summer months make detecting and resolving problems easier before they worsen. Below, we will dive a little into why that is and offer a few tips to make your foundation repair work successful.

Optimal Weather Conditions

It probably goes without question that summer brings favorable weather conditions for foundation repairs. Dry and warm weather allows for an accurate assessment of foundation issues. It also means the foundation repair technicians can work faster since they don’t have to stop progress to warm up.

Efficient Repair Processes

Summer provides an ideal climate for completing foundation repairs efficiently. The absence of rain and lower humidity levels allow for faster drying times. That ensures proper curing of materials used in the repair process.

More Daylight

While it sounds simple, the extended daylight during summer can significantly improve your overall foundation repair experience. It allows contractors to find the issues faster. And that added daylight also means the workday gets extended. That can reduce the project length, allowing your life to return to normal sooner.


Tips for Successful Foundation Repairs in Summer

Schedule Professional Inspections

Start by scheduling a professional inspection to assess the condition of your foundation. Experts can identify any underlying issues and will recommend appropriate repairs.

Plan Accordingly

Coordinate with a reputable foundation repair company and schedule the repairs when it’s most convenient. Consider vacations or other special events to minimize disruptions.

Address Your Drainage System

Your new foundation repair won’t last long if you have improper drainage systems. Take time to ensure no debris buildup or blockage is present. Also, check if the stormwater flow is sufficiently directed away from your home.

Don’t let small foundation issues grow. Contact Virginia Foundation Solutions today to schedule an inspection of your foundation.

Quality materials and workmanship. Matt answered all our questions, even after hours, and Miguel and his crew were efficient and resolved all issues immediately. A very satisfied customer.


Professional and courteous at all time. Crew was on site for 4 days in terrible weather and never missed a beat. Kept us informed, did what they planned and kept the areas near and clean. A really great crew.

VFS crew did a wonderful job. They worked effectively together to complete our project. They used care in making sure our lawn was not ruined and they cleaned up their work area when completed.

Mary Routten

Work was completed as promised. Purple crew was prompt, professional, and considerate of our home. Zero complaints

I highly recommend this company. They had the best price, quality work and it was completed on time, which is rare these days. It’s not easy so I commend the crew on their hard work!

Everything looks GREAT and the finished crawlspace was better than we expected. The RED crew did a great job and left the entire worksite cleaner than it was when they arrived.

We recently used VFS to install an interior french drain and sump pump in our finished lower level. The "purple crew" was assigned to our job and they were fabulous!!! They were timely, neat, respectful and hardworking. We are very happy with the job they did.

Howard Bloom

The yellow crew (Willy, Marco, Oscar, and Patrick) were VERY professional and hard working. They kept us informed every step of the way. The clean up at end of the workday was exceptional. The best part is my foundation is fixed and our crawlspace is the cleanest crawlspace I have ever seen.

Scott Withdrew

The workers were very professional, experienced and knowledgeable. They left the crawlspace with reinforced support beams. A supervisor checked their work in the afternoon.

VFS did a great job on our house’s foundation in double quick time and when they left our yard was cleaner and tidier than it was when they came! Thank you all. The masonry team also did a wonderful job. The damaged brickwork looks as good as new. Well done!

Great customer service. Fantastic work under the house along with follow through to ensure everything was complete. Our Moisture and Termite inspector said it was the best "under house" inspection he'd done!
