Do you have a cracked foundation? With solutions such as carbon fiber, repairing cracked foundations is easier and more affordable for homeowners. Carbon fiber will help to reinforce your foundation and stop the movement. This solution does not require maintenance and will last for years.
However, this doesn’t mean that you should ignore the root cause of the foundation movement. Often times, repairing cracked foundations also involves dealing with drainage issues that are causing the destabilization of the foundation. The following are signs that you also need to deal with foundation drainage in addition to stabilizing the foundation walls.
Take some time to examine how your gutters collect and drain runoff on a rainy day. If you see a lot of water gushing over the edge of the gutters, your gutters could be the source of your foundation problems.
Gutters are meant to collect runoff and ensure it drains far away from your foundation. If there is debris such as dead leaves or twigs that has blocked your gutters and downspouts, water will overflow and be deposited at the foundation. This can also happen if the pitch of your gutters is incorrect or too small.
