Most of the soil in Brandon consists of porous limestone. Groundwater and rainwater flow through this limestone, forming cavities–or sinkholes–in the ground. Some of these cavities are small, but some are large enough to swallow bridges, homes, and cars. If you suspect sinkhole activity on your property, give Foundation Pros of FL a call before the situation becomes worse. Some common signs of sinkhole activity can occur inside or outside of the home. These signs include:
- Driveway cracks
- Sidewalk cracks
- Leaning fences, trees, or landscaping
- Soft soil spots on the ground surface
If you notice any of these signs, you may have sinkhole activity. Our professionals have the skills and experience to protect your home from sinkhole disasters in the Brandon, FL area. We offer both compaction grouting and void filling to fill sinkholes and stabilize your home.
