Sinkholes Concerns for Waterfront Homes in Florida
The view of living in a waterfront home in Florida can be very inviting. There can also be the constant struggle of trying to save the property from a devastating sinkhole. Florida is infamously known for sinkholes. That is because of the limestone terrain. Limestone is very porous so when the acidity of the rain runs through it, it causes it to break down and create sinkholes.
One of the common areas that is problematic when living on the waterfront, is the seawall cap. Sinkholes form around a seawall due to the sand getting sucked out from under the seawall.
It is important to have an expert in sinkhole repair to come and give you a permanent solution so that the problem doesn’t keep arising. The experts at Foundation Professionals of Florida has the experience and solutions to give you a permanent sinkhole repair around your waterfront home in Florida.
