Common Concrete & Foundation Issues
There's plenty that can go wrong with your concrete
surfaces and building foundations. Much of these problems are a result of cold weather,
water drainage concerns, improper installation, or concrete that was not up to code. Addressing
the issues correctly takes a professional eye, and the contractors at Eden Sidewalk Contractors
NYC are well versed in the complications that your concrete surfaces can face and will be able
to provide you with the appropriate solutions all for an affordable rate.
- Improper Damage - If your gutters aren't working properly this can cause
water to accumulate around your home. As the water levels rise, this water will then
permeate your foundation and eventually cause cracks and other problems that may lead to
flooding or invasive mold growth.
- Bowing Foundation Walls - The structural integrity of your foundation walls
may often be compromised in situations like this. These problems begin as cracks on the
exterior and will eventually spread to the inside of the foundation as well, potentially
leading to a collapse.
- Cracks - If you have begun to notice cracks starting or spreading in your
concrete foundation walls, then you should get them repaired as soon as possible. These will
become worse over time if they are not properly treated. These cracks are not natural and
should not be ignored.
