Home Owners Must be on Lookout for Foundation Damage
Signs of Foundation Damage Brought to Attention by Foundation Repair Company
LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc. (julianconstruction.com), a foundation construction and foundation repair company in Los Angeles, is revealing the results of decades of experience in the causes of foundation problems. The company has been working in the field of foundation repair for over 20 years, and has worked with many homes to determine the conditions surrounding and indications of foundation problems, so that homeowners can spot them before they become a structural risk.
Shawn Kyles, chief safety expert at Julian Construction, stated: “There are many reasons for soil compaction, including the soil not having been properly compacted in the first place. Moisture can also cause settlement. When the soil gets wet, it expands. When it dries, it shrinks. Certain types of soil, like clay soil, expand and contract more than others. This means the type of soil the home is built on can influence the amount and rate of settlement. Trees looking for water underneath a home can also cause soil disruption that leads to settlement.”
