It is important that every property will need to have a safe and reliable foundation, but commercial buildings have more at stake.
1. Lack Of Exterior Grading
A lack of exterior grading permits water to saturate the soil underneath and around your foundation and can expose it to extreme swelling and contraction.
2. Trees And Shrubs
Trees and shrubs planted too close to a building can grow roots underneath the foundation and physically shift it.
Many states have sweltering summers and prolonged droughts. Not only does the extreme heat and dryness cause clay soil to shrink, but trees also expand their root system to ensure their survival when water is scarce.
If you notice signs of foundation issues on your property, don’t put them off. Resolving foundation problems quickly can save you time and money.
