If you live in Lynn Haven, FL, you are aware that there are periods of very dry weather and periods of very wet weather. During the wet season, the ground can become saturated around your home. This saturated soil can place hydrostatic pressure on your home’s foundation, causing the foundation to become damaged.
As the soil shifts and moves beneath your foundation, the foundation will shift and settle. Some of the signs to look for that indicate a need for foundation repair are:
- Sloping floors
- Floor and wall cracks
- Leaning chimney
- Doors and windows that stick
- Bowing walls
- Spaces between wall and ceiling or floor

Limestone, common in Florida, is very porous – when the acid in rainwater runs through it, the limestone will dissolve creating cavities. This causes the surface layer of limestone to collapse into the cavities, creating a sinkhole. Some of the signs to look for are:
- Cracking of exterior walls, porches, decks, sidewalks or driveways
- Cracking around in-ground pools or pool decks
- Uneven or sinking floors
- Standing water in your yard
- Excessive leakage from in-ground pool
- Known sinkhole activity in your neighborhood
- Fence posts are sagging
- Circular patches in yard
If you notice any of these sings that may indicate that there is sinkhole activity in and around your home or business, contact the experts at Foundation Professionals of Florida. We will inspect your home and determine the best solution for your sinkhole repair. The solutions we use for sinkhole repair and remediation are compaction grouting and permeation grouting. Both of these methods strengthen the soil to increase the load-bearing capacity of the soil.
