Your foundation is a strong system that is built to last over 100 years, but there are some situations that can occur which will cause cracks or bowing of the foundation walls. When this happens, you’ll need to consider foundation repair services. The Real Seal offers professional foundation repair in Chicago to keep your home safe. Our team has been working on foundations for many years.
One of the most common reasons for bowing is water pressure pushing against the foundation walls. This gets even worse in freezing Chicago temperatures when ice can put even more pressure against your foundation.
Some other common causes of problems include tree roots, heavy soil pressing against your foundation walls, poor initial construction, the age of your foundation, settling from the weight of your home on the foundation, deterioration due to time, shrinkage from the curing of concrete, and more.
