3 Signs You Need Foundation Repair

Plumbing Leaks

A slab leak can ravage your home’s foundation if it’s left unchecked. These plumbing leaks occur when a pipe under your home is cracked or otherwise compromised. Slab leaks can be identified by higher than average utility bills, as well as the sound of running water without explanation. If the leak is left untreated, soil shifting can result in the need for foundation repair.

Weather Changes

As a result, your foundation may be impacted, and this can cause problems in the home itself. Cracks in the concrete, bowed walls, and far more extensive damage can occur when changing seasons leads to problems with your foundation.

Tree Roots

Tree roots are another common cause of foundation issues. As tree roots expand on your property, they can make contact with your foundation, causing heaving and buckling. Before any problems occur, consider having trees removed by a professional service to ensure your foundation remains intact.
