Construction Company Warns Of Dangers Of Foundation Settlement and Gives Solutions
LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, (http://www.julianconstruction.com/), recently issued a list of recommendations for the handling of foundation settlement in a home. The company also included several factors a homeowner can watch for which indicate the condition. Julian Construction, a construction company specializing in foundation construction and repair, has been in the construction business for over 10 years.
Foundation settlement occurs due to weather conditions, soil issues or moisture problems, according to the statement issued by the company. Several factors indicate foundation settlement, such as wall cracks or difficulty opening and closing windows, etc. The company stressed that foundation settlement can be extremely dangerous, potentially resulting in the home’s collapse. To prevent settlement, the company recommended the use of piers, piles or caissons. After the condition has been found to be present by a competent and certified foundation inspector, it is recommended by the company that the appropriate supports for the foundation be installed so as to halt settlement.
