Looking for wet basement waterproofing in Kansas City?
Spring rains can be a welcome sign of the upcoming weather, but most people with foundation issues particularly, dislike the rain for a variety of reasons – specifically, the renewed reality that the previous rain brought on – the wet basement needs to be dealt with and simply will not go away.
How rain affects basement foundations
Heavy rain can be the culprit in many cases to foundation damage, including minor foundation damage in the form of a small crack that can easily be caused by excessive rain. Small cracks are surely minor damage because they are not significant to your home’s structure. However, some minor cracks can serve as an indication that you have a foundation problem because they indicate that whenever there is the presence of heavy rains pressure is being exerted on the foundation which ultimately results in damage over time. Further, these cracks can also lead to water leaks in the home since groundwater can easily find its way into a home by multiple means, and that definitely includes minor cracks in the foundation.
In addition to these minor problems, there are some major problems homeowners need to worry about with regard to foundation damage. One of the most serious problems that can and does often occur is when your foundation goes through a severe sinking or settling as a result of heavy rains. When this happens, you are apt to notice multiple problems throughout your home. When heavy rains occur the soil around your foundation and under your foundation begins to swell. When dry weather follows a heavy rain this very same soil shrinks thereby leaving a chasm that your home’s foundation sinks into.
What to look for in your foundation
Signs you can look for that indicate your home’s foundation has suffered a severe settling or sinkage include cracks in or around your windows and doors, cracks in your concrete floors or drywalls, a leaning chimney, windows and doors that keep on jamming and sticking, cracks in the bricks of your stair steps and, of course, major cracks or heaves in your foundation.
