Common Concrete & Foundation Issues
There's plenty that can go wrong with your concrete surfaces and building foundations. Much of these problems are a result of cold weather, water drainage concerns, improper installation, or concrete that was not up to code. Addressing the issues correctly takes a professional eye, and the contractors at Eden Sidewalk Contractors are well versed in the complications that your concrete surfaces can face and will be able to provide you with the appropriate solutions all for an affordable rate.
- Improper Damage - If your gutters aren't working properly this can cause water to accumulate around your home. As the water levels rise, this water will then permeate your foundation and eventually cause cracks and other problems that may lead to flooding or invasive mold growth.
- Bowing Foundation Walls - The structural integrity of your foundation walls may often be compromised in situations like this. These problems begin as cracks on the exterior and will eventually spread to the inside of the foundation as well, potentially leading to a collapse.
- Cracks - If you have begun to notice cracks starting or spreading in your concrete foundation walls, then you should get them repaired as soon as possible. These will become worse over time if they are not properly treated. These cracks are not natural and should not be ignored.
