Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/08/2013 -- Hot dry wind and intense heat often causes the soil to shrink beneath the foundation. This settlement may cause cracks to appear throughout the structure. Taking this into account, one of the leading service providers of basement waterproofing in Chester County and other areas, Herbfry Waterproofing, recently added foundation repair to its service offerings. Poor soil and its expansion and/or contraction contribute to foundation failure. To provide a permanent solution to these kinds of problems, Herbfry Waterproofing has started offering foundation repair.
When asked about the causes of foundation failure, the spokesperson of this firm of basement waterproofing in Fort Washington was quoted saying, “Water from plumbing leaks is often a cause of foundation problems. Improper drainage is one of the leading causes of foundation failure. Excess moisture will erode or consolidate soils and cause settlement. Tree roots may desiccate the soil beneath a home causing the soil to shrink and the home to settle. Insufficient steel and inferior concrete will contribute to movement in the slab. Soft, low density soils and/or improperly compacted soil beneath a home is the leading cause of foundation failure. Cut and fill situations should be properly prepared before the soil is ready to support a structure. “
