With all of the rain we have been having in Kansas City it has been a true test for our homes foundations. Here are some things to think about to prevent or even fix some of your foundation issues;
- make sure water is going away from your home (don’t let it pool up next to your foundation and make sure all of your gutters are putting the water as far away from your home as possible)
- your deck and patio need to be slopped away from your home to let the water drain away. If they are not you should get it fixed immediately or pay high dollar for issues it will cause you down the road.
- if you have cracks in your foundation they need to be fixed from the outside. dig down on the outside of your home and epoxy and tar the issue to prevent water from coming in.
