Hialeah gets about 20 inches more rain than the national annual average. Because the city experiences a wet season, much of its rainfall comes during a few short months. This can cause some foundation issues for Hialeah buildings. When a lot of rainfall comes in a little amount of time, the ground becomes overly saturated. When this happens, the saturated soils place what is called hydrostatic pressure on a home's foundation. If this pressure surpasses the load that the foundation was built to withstand, it will eventually crack. These cracks can allow water, insects, and unwanted critters into your home.
If you notice this happening or if you want to avoid the problem altogether, contact us. We will help you with our reliable foundation repair products from ECP (Earth Contact Products) and our professional experience. Our ECP solutions are lightweight and easy to install because the equipment used to install them is portable.
