Lawn damage and ruined landscaping are one thing. Though not exactly cheap to fix, these issues are fundamentally aesthetic in nature. Foundation damage, on the other hand, can affect the structural integrity and habitability of a home.
Over time, hydrostatic pressure alongside foundation walls can cause water to leak into basements through micro, small, and eventually large cracks. This is a problem that, once noticed, will only get worse until the issue has been dealt with. Unfortunately, foundation damage is one of the most common drainage problems that homeowners face, and it’s difficult to spot until the problem is bad enough to necessitate repairs.
If you start to notice water stains that weren’t there before or even small cracks, it’s a good idea to have someone come out to check the health of your foundation. Sooner is always better than later.
