The Importance of a Solid Foundation

A crack on your basement wall could signify major foundation damage.

Your home is only as good as the foundation it sits on. The foundation of your home should be one of the highest priorities when it comes to your home’s repairs. If you notice any damage to your home, it is important to fix it as soon as possible before it affects your entire home. Let’s take a moment to talk about why it is important to have a strong foundation.

Protecting Your Home as a Whole

Your foundation is not just the place your home sits on, it helps to protect your entire home. While home sizes and shapes vary greatly, a good foundation is the base of any home. The need for a solid foundation is the same no matter when or where the home is built. This portion of your home is what keeps it stable and is an invaluable structure for your home.

Helps Prevent Shifting and Settling

A good foundation also helps to prevent your home from shifting or settling into the ground beneath. If your home is on an unstable foundation, you could be experiencing faults in your home like uneven flooring or cracks, which could lead to water and property damage. If the soil under the foundation is not compacted efficiently, it could put your home at risk for serious issues like cracking or even sinking.

Resistant to Different Climate Conditions

A strongly built foundation is able to resist any changes in weather your climate can throw at it. From torrential downpours to bone dry summers, your foundation must be able to stay solid no matter what the ground beneath it does.

Maintain Property Values

A strong foundation will help keep your property value intact. When you go to sell your home, potential buyers will be able to see the value of your home without worrying about its foundation. The foundation is the base of your home and without a good one, your home could be experiencing many problems.

A wet, leaking basement or crawl space moisture can contribute to several home issues including musty smells, mold growth, and sagging, uneven floors throughout the house could also be a sign of foundation damage.
