Foundation Damage After Hurricane Season

Assessing The Damage

Hurricane season equals lots of rainfall. And, lots of rainfall leads to massive flooding. Whether you are in the eye of the storm, or hundreds of miles away, hurricane season will influence those in its path. What else might be affected by hurricane floods and severe rainfall: foundation settling. In other words, foundation repair after hurricane season is vital to a building’s structure. It is essential to check structural foundations after severe storms in order to assess damage. Why is this important?

In essence, when soil moves, so does your foundation. During hurricane season, severe rain fall occurs. Because of this, soil gets overly saturated and then it pushes its way against foundation elements. Moreover, this leads to cracking and bowing of walls and potential problems in crawl spaces. Furthermore, if you live near the coast, sea walls can be damaged. Unfortunately, this can cause severe damage to your home or building.
