Quality Concrete Foundation Contractors in Las Vegas, NV
A foundation essentially does all the load bearing for your home. If you have a multi-story house the load is much higher. Your home could have either slab, pier or beam foundation depending on the soil composition, but most common is the slab foundation. Essentially the original builder of your house should have done the proper due diligence taking into account, the soil composition, climate extremes in your area and the structural load bearing needs of your house. Even if the builder had done a fantastic job, due to geological changes beyond prediction, a foundation may face issues which needs the attention of a experienced foundation contractor.
A major contributor to the failure of concrete foundations is expansive soils. If you are living in one of the nine states (Alabama, California, Colorado, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas or Wyoming) with most expensive soils, and if you look around, the foundation issues are not so rare. Also, this also means you need to pay more attention to your foundation and take some preventive care or even routine inspection to avoid costly repairs later. Foundation failures are not usually sudden unless for an extreme environmental event, so monitoring your foundation or to get a specialist to routinely inspect would be a wise initiative.
Since expensive soil reacts to the volume of water, when it loses moisture it shrinks. Now, if you have a slab foundation in your home, as they are designed to support essentially 100 percent of their area, the foundation can settle due to this shrinkage. Even if you have beam or pier foundation they do respond to this shrinkage but with less frequency. That's why in a harsh dry summer, you are advised to wet the foundation, especially if you live in one of the nine states above, to lessen the shrinkage of the soil.
