Need to Fix Your Home’s Foundation? Fall is the Best Time to Make Repairs
As fall approaches the Philadelphia area, it is a great time to fix those cracks in your foundation.
Summer’s high heat and humidity can really take a toll on your basement and foundation walls. The humidity and summer rains cause the soil around your home to expand, and when this happens a lot of pressure is put on your foundation.
- Cracks form and soon water begins to seep in, causing massive structural damages.
Then, winter comes rolling in..if the last few winters are any indication, the temperatures will be extremely cold and with a lot of rain and snow. Last year Cherry Hilly NJ got over 20″ of snow in the winter of 2013 – 2014.
Philadelphia got slightly more. Areas north of Philly like Harrisburg go much more. Same with most of South Jersey.
And, there were several nights where temperatures dipped below 0.
This can cause huge problems for your foundation!
Why Fall is Best
The fall season in the Philadelphia area has gotten shorter, but, it still gives us about 8 weeks of very mild weather.
- This is the best time to waterproof and have your foundation repaired because there is little chance of snow fall, and it is often a dry part of the year. No rain gives your yard a chance to recover and allows us to fix your foundation.
