When a lot of rain falls, the ground around your home can become overly saturated. This saturation creates what is called hydrostatic pressure. If this pressure surpasses the load that your foundation was built to withstand, it may crack. These cracks can let in water, insects, and unwanted critters. If you notice anything of the like happening, give Foundation Professionals of Florida a call today. We will inspect the situation and come up with a repair solution. Most of our solutions involve the installation of an ECP underpinning piers such as a steel pier or helical pier, but we also use polyurethane solutions to fill voids beneath your foundation and lift and level slabs in the Cape Coral, FL area.

Another danger to be cautious of in Florida is sinkholes. Florida’s soil is made up of limestone. The acid in rainfall dissolves the limestone and creates cavities and voids. The land surface then collapses into the cavities creating the sinkhole. If you keep yourself aware and educated about sinkholes, you can avoid the danger in your home. We’ll inspect any issues you have and determine if you are at risk of a sinkhole. We specialize in compaction grouting to fill in the loose soil that can cause sinkholes.
