Why Does A Foundation Crack?

There are several reasons why your foundation may form cracks. Moisture levels, temperature changes and extreme heat can all cause expansion or shrinkage of concrete over time. This results in both small and large foundation cracks!

Can Foundation Repair Be Done In The Winter?

Winter is actually the ideal time for foundation repairs! While foundations can be worked on any day of the year, the cooler weather and less chance of rain make for a more stable setting for working on sealing and repairing concrete!

Is Foundation Repair Covered By Insurance?

Every foundation repair case is different, so it’s important to consult with a foundation specialist and an insurance representative to get accurate answers. However, foundation damage insurance claims are usually determined by the cause of the damage and whether that cause is covered under your plan.
