Great Lakes Detects Foundation Upheaval Causes in Rochester, NY

Foundation Upheaval

Foundation upheaval might be difficult to detect until you see early warning signs such as wall cracks, jammed doors, chimney issues or more. Great Lakes Waterproofing can inspect and assess your foundation if affected by the following:

  • Expansion: Clay-rich soil expands when wet and leaves homes built upon it vulnerable to upheaval. Soil around or under a home can contract after a foundation excavation. Clay-rich soil then becomes too moist during a wet spell and can heave a newer foundation.
  • Frost upheaval: These forces can elevate a foundation, sometimes by several inches, causing serious damage.
  • Plumbing leaks: Plumbing lines beneath a concrete slab or through a foundation wall can leak or break, causing moisture collection under the slab and foundation. Supply, waste lines, or HVAC systems can all contribute.
  • Prolonged precipitation: Too much precipitation can impede drainage away from your home's foundation or slab, expanding soil and causing heave.
