Avoid Costly Foundation Repairs… Follow These Tips
- Fix Minor Cracks with Epoxsy
- Monitor Drainage – Gutters and downspouts are a critical factor in maintaining a solid foundation. Properly size and install gutters and downspouts. Direct water away from your home.
- Ensure Proper Grading – The ground level should be sloping away from your foundation.
- Watch for Puddling Water near your Foundation – After a rainstorm look for water puddling near your foundation. If there are puddles you need to find a way to direct the water away from the house. Solutions vary. You may need to install a french drain, or improve the grade around your foundation.
