Keeping your Foundation Solid
Most people are aware of the fact that a wet foundation can often lead to structural problems with their home if left unattended. Water that is not properly drained from the area around your home can become frozen into cracks in your foundation in the winter, causing further damage once the ice thaws in the spring. If this has occurred at your home in the past, it is a very good idea to make sure your drain tile system is still in proper working order, and to replace or repair any damaged areas now to avoid problems in the future.
While the majority of homeowners are aware of the fact that water damage can wreak havoc on the structure of their home, many are unaware of the fact that a lack of water in the ground around your house can also cause severe structural damage. Once again, this issue can be resolved by installing a high quality drain tile system from Sommerville & Son, since a drain tile system not only removes water from unwanted areas, but can also distribute that water where it is needed around your home. Many houses in this area are built on soil that contains a significant amount of clay. When this clay gets too dry, it can cause your foundation to actually sink, since the clay is dry and unable to support the weight of your home. With a drain tile system installed alongside the footers of your home, you can actually inject water into dry patches underground, which will help maintain the structure of your home.
