Effects of Winter in Birmingham, Alabama
Winter in Birmingham, Alamaba can bring everything from severe weather to snow and ice so you need to make sure your basement, crawlspace, or slab foundation is ready for anything. Winter has many different effects on your home or business including:
- Floor cracks
- Wall cracks
- Foundation cracks
- Sinking and settling foundation
- Wet basement
- Sloping or uneven floors
Winter means cold weather which can cause the surface of the ground to freeze, which causes the soil to shrink creating voids. This may cause your foundation to sink and settle into those voids. This can create cracking in your foundation floors and walls or sloping or uneven floors, which may allow water to seep and leak into your basement. When the snow and ice melt, it has to go somewhere, and if you have cracking, it’s going into your basement. That’s why you should contact us here at Nichols / Grout Tech.
