Foundation Repair for Sinking Homes in Charleston

A foundation is completely dependent on the dirt underneath and all around it to provide it with the strong support it requires, and this is why you need foundation repair services immediately. An analogy may be to compare your home to a notebook computer. If you place the laptop computer on a firm, level kitchen table it will remain safe; but if you place the same laptop computer on a bed pillow, there is a pretty good possibility it will start to lean one way or the other. The dirt under and all around your foundation is either like the table or even the pillow: if conditions adjust, your house on top of unstable soil will move and settle in a different position. If abnormal settling is allowed to remain unchecked, it can result in constant high priced fixes to the property or, in a worst case scenario, result in a quick and precipitous collapse of all or part of the structure.
