It’s Hot Out There, and Your Foundation Knows It!
These 95 degree plus days in the Houston area are hard on foundations. When the temperature goes up, and the rainfall amounts go down the soil drys quickly, especially around our large trees common a the front of every home. We often find evidence of differential settlement toward trees during this time of the year. The good news is that frequently when settlement is occurring due to drying of expansive soil drying around trees it can be improved with maintenance over time. Call us and let us evaluate your foundation. You can also look at our recommendations for foundation care and foundation watering to help you to maintain your building’s foundation.
