When a homeowner has a concern, foundation repair companies will consider every possible reason for a problem and then give suggestions for repairs. Settlement of the ground beneath a foundation or upheaval are generally the root of the problem. Repair companies will focus on the appropriate solution. When settlement occurs, they will build up the soil beneath to provide additional support. Upheaval is often due to too much moisture caused by leakage from a drain or plumbing. Foundation repair companies may work in cooperation with plumbing companies to solve the problem of leakage and re-direct the water flow in order to make sure high moisture levels are resolved. Another cause of foundation problems can be caused by roots from nearby trees that cause structural damage. Trees may need to be removed to stop this before repairs are done.
