B-Dry, a leading and established waterproofing and repair service provider, is highlighting the importance of strong foundation. The company is bringing about awareness among homeowners, as they could be facilitated to inspect and detect important signs of damage and seek professional assistance immediately. The website is stressing on the importance of foundation integrity. All foundation errors must be fixed immediately to avoid any permanent damage to the home or impending damage for its inhabitants.
Providing professional and prompt services in over twenty five states across the United States, the company is advising homeowners and inhabitants to look for signs like fractured bricks, damp basement floors, wet crawl spaces, and fractured walls in the basement. The company is also recommending a thorough home inspection for standing water, drafts, poor indoor air system, and cracks in interior walls as well as exterior concrete. Other subtle and often indirect symptoms of a weakened concrete foundation include running nose and itchy eyes that are a result of poor air quality indoors, which often lead to allergic reactions. B-Dry is informing its customers to check for malfunctioning windows or doors, as well as stains and mildew on the exterior walls as this indicates seepage of water through the walls and into the foundation.
Being one of the best service providers for waterproofing and foundation repairs in over seventy five locations, the company is ensuring customer safety by offering quick tips on finding problems and encouraging them to immediately set up an appointment. Apart from providing this information, the company is also highlighting certain causes for foundation damage. In efforts to educate and make its customers more knowledgeable, BDry.com recently offered a number of suggestions and quick fixes to maintain the structural integrity of homes.
A common cause of concrete foundation damage, as highlighted by the company, is soil composition and change in quantity. Depending on the home’s location, the concrete foundation could be subjected to sandy, clay, or silty soil. While sand does not retain moisture, clay soil retains water during rainy months and often expands in size, forming cracks in the foundation. Additionally, the soil’s stability, its moisture content, as well as the hydrostatic pressure influence the foundation’s strength. Other common reasons for damage revealed by BDry.com include poor construction and building practices, defective building components, as well as improper drainage.
