Can water damage my home's foundation?Indeed! heavy rain and flooding are frequently responsible for doors and windows sticking, water pooling, or the development of musty odors. When the soil becomes saturated and holds excess water, it can become soft and prone to sinking under the weight of your home. This sinking can lead to various foundation issues that affect the functionality and stability of your doors, windows, and overall structure. Therefore, it is crucial to address any drainage or waterproofing concerns to prevent further damage caused by water retention in the soil.
What is the average time it takes a new home to "settle"?It is normal for a home to experience some degree of settling after construction. As the weight of the structure is distributed onto the soil, it is expected that the home may sink a few inches into the ground. This settling process typically occurs over the course of one to two years as the soil reacts to seasonal changes and temperature fluctuations. However, it is important to be vigilant and monitor for any signs of foundation problems that may arise over time. While some settling is normal, if you observe any indicators of foundation issues, such as cracks, uneven floors, or other warning signs, it is crucial to address them promptly to prevent further complications. Regular inspections and proactive maintenance can help identify and address any potential problems before they worsen.
