Foundation Repair Florida
If you have experienced foundation problems in Florida, you are not alone. Because Florida soil is made up mostly of limestone, there is greater likelihood that at some point, you will need foundation repair. Limestone is a soft material made up of clay and sand. When rainwater accumulates, it erodes this soft limestone causing your foundation to shift and settle. How well the house was designed and constructed also contributes to your home’s foundation settling. Looking for signs of foundation settlement and catching the problem early can prevent sinkholes from occurring under your foundation.
Signs to look for are:
- Floor cracks
- Foundation cracks
- Leaning chimney
- Bowing and leaning walls
- Settling/sinking garage
- Slab cracks
- Water stains
- Wet basement
- Sticking doors/windows
Sinkholes are usually a slow-motion process that can take years to form. While acid in the rainwater causes limestone to dissipate and create holes under a foundation, another factor that may be contributing to sinkholes is the fact that builders are in search of developable land and may be building on less than ideal sites.
