Hillside Foundation Repair – What to Expect
Do you live in a hillside home? If so, you may be wondering what types of repairs are in store for your home’s current state or future.
Hillside homes pose a unique set of challenges. For example, thanks to their design and location, natural soil movement, shifting soil, and landslides, can pose major threats to the stability.
One of the most common repairs needed for hillside homes come from slope failure. When this occurs, it can significantly affect the structural integrity of your property. Here are some warning signs to be on the lookout for when it comes to safeguarding your hillside home:
Signs of a failing or unstable slope:
- Leaning movement or curves in trees and other structures.
- Erosion from the bottom of the slope.
- Mounds on the slope that are new or that were not originally there.
- Moisture changes to the soil – soil that looks unusually wet or dry on the surface of the slope.
If you’ve noticed any of the signs listed above, these could be indications that the slope of your hillside home is starting to erode.
Luckily, there are a variety of repair methods for addressing these issues. Whether it’s repairing a slope, modifying earth movement, or addressing a landslide, a qualified foundation repair company can fix these issues with a few simple solutions.
