We’re excited to start a campaign series entitled #FoundationFactFriday, a series dedicated to educating our customers about the most important component of their home or business — their foundation.
Foundation Fact: The average home in the U.S. weighs 50 tons?
That’s heavy! You need a strong foundation to support all that weight. Have you experienced cracks or settling in your foundation? Common signs and symptons include cracks in bricks, brick mortar joints, blocks, block mortar joints, walls, concrete slabs, slope in floors and/or separation around doors and windows. Foundation settlement is more prevalent than many realize, especially throughout NC and SC due to climate and soil composition. Homeowners and business owners hope to never experience foundation issues, but fortunately if the correct steps are followed and the proper repairs are provided the issue can be resolved generally quickly and permanently, with little to no disturbance to the property and without decreasing value of the property.
Carolina Foundation Solutions can provide the best solutions available to resolve your foundation problems. Installation of helical piers is a proven method used to support and stabilize areas of a foundation that are experiencing settlement. Learn more about helical piles here.
