Miami, FL receives an annual rainfall of 60 inches compared to the national average of 36.5 inches. This excess of rainfall can cause some problems for Florida homes.
When the ground around your home becomes saturated, it places hydrostatic pressure on your foundation. Because Miami receives a huge amount of rainfall in a little time, the ground can become overly saturated. When this happens, an excess of hydrostatic pressure is placed on a home’s foundation. The foundation will then begin to crack, letting in water, insects, and even critters.
Foundation Professionals of Florida uses the very best in underpinning products from Earth Contact Products to fix these issues in Miami, Florida. The use of slab piers can actually lift and level your cracked slab, and then we can grout any slab cracks which can actually make your slab stronger than it originally was. Call us for foundation repair.
