What Causes Foundation Failure?

Cv1b6569

Whether your home was built on a slab or you have a crawl space or basement, your foundation’s structural stability is dependent on the soil beneath it. Unfortunately, that soil will erode after years of rain washout and compact during summer scorchers, leaving your foundation unsupported and prone to failure. New homes can also be affected by settlement like this because all the soil around the foundation will be freshly disturbed. Because it’s not compacted well, soil washes out easily and leaves voids underneath the foundation.

Virginia Foundation Solutions’ team of dedicated experts can help you diagnose and repair your home’s foundation issues for good. When you need a team that values precision, quality communication, and superior customer service, look no further than VFS.
