Is Your Foundation Settling?
As houses are built on a layer of soil, they often experience foundation settling when the soil begins to move. Natural settling, erosion, drought, or excessive rainfall can all impact the soil under your home’s foundation. As that soil begins to settle, there is no longer a stable surface for the foundation to rest on, which causes foundation settlement.
Thankfully, there are a number of early warning signs of foundation settlement, allowing homeowners to address the problem before it worsens. Look for sticking doors or windows, interior or exterior wall cracks, or chimney separation. If any of these symptoms of foundation settlement are present in your Lexington-area home, contact the team at United Structural Systems right away. Waiting to address signs of foundation settlement may result in worse damage and more expensive repairs in the future.
