Most homeowners aren’t aware that extensive heat and expansive soil can cause serious foundation problems for homes in Prairie Village, KS. During summer months, clay soil shrinks and cracks because of the lack of moisture. After heavy rains, it swells causing it to expand. Inconsistent moisture levels create stress on the structure, causing cracks and other damage. If you notice the structure of your home starting to become weak, soil may be pulling away from the foundation.
Inspect the interior as well as the exterior of your home for foundation problems. Some common signs include:
If you have any of these structural issues, contact Pro Foundation Technology immediately. Waiting to make the necessary repairs could cost you more money in the long run and create more damage to your home. We offer foundation repair solutions such as helical piers and steel push piers. These products are designed to improve the overall structure of your home and stabilize your settling or sinking foundation. These piers also relieve the foundation of excess hydrostatic pressure to prevent bowing and cracking foundation walls.
As clay soil soaks up water, it swells and expands the soil. This creates pressure and stress against the foundation walls, causing cracks to form throughout the structure and foundation walls. The cracks create a pathway for water, causing significant damage to your home.
We offer interior drainage systems, sump pumps, and exterior drainage systems. Our interior drainage system consists of a drainage pipe that connects to an energy-efficient sump pump. This helps remove pooling water around the foundation to prevent flooding. Our exterior waterproofing system uses an ECP drain pipe to direct the flow of water to a non-disruptive location away from your foundation.
If you have a wet, damp crawlspace, we can use crawlspace encapsulation with a vapor barrier. This system is designed to help keep water from accumulating in and around your home by sealing out moisture in your crawlspace.
All of our waterproofing methods will eliminate water problems once and for all. Our products are made by Earth Contact Products, the leading manufacturer in underpinning and waterproofing. Let our team inspect your home for free to determine the best solution for your home’s needs.
