Remember What the House is Sitting On
When you are planning to reside in a home or even if you are simply just invested in the home for others to reside in, it is important to maintain it properly. Now there are many aspects to properly caring for a home, however, the foundation is afterall what the house sits on.
Maintain The Health of Your Home
You will want to make sure that you are maintaining it's health and help to create as little movement for the foundation as possible.The ground around your home should be a main concern factor. When there are visible cracks in the ground, you will need to take action.
Here are a few of the things you can do:
- Maintain the moisture level of the ground with soaker hoses
- After rainfall be sure to check for sitting puddles and direct the water away from your foundation
- Check for leaks periodically and take action to repair if found
- Fix even minor cracks in your slab
Since we cannot predict the amount of rainfall we will receive, just be sure and water around your foundation as you would your landscape. The goal is to not allow much movement as this is where it can become very costly!
