Five Reasons For Foundation Damage

Foundation problems can lead to cracked walls, out of alignment doors and windows, water leaks, and uneven settling. Knowing the likely cause of the problem can help determine the proper repair plan. 1. Poor Drainage Poor drainage around your foundation causes water to collect in the soil just outside the foundation walls. This water can put pressure on the foundation, resulting in cracks and leaks. Even if cracks don't form, the water pressure can cause the foundation to settle unevenly, which also eventually leads to damage.
