Although unseen, certain trees have root systems that can be invasive and cause serious structural damage to your home. As they spread in their search for water, they can break through the concrete walls of your foundation and cause cracks to form. If you want to protect your home from tree roots, research which species are minimally invasive and make sure to plant them far away enough from your home. This will guarantee your home stays safe from tree-related damage.
You may not always realize it, but the grade of your yard plays a role in determining how much water your foundation experiences. If your landscape has a negative grade, anytime it rains, the water will pool around the perimeter of your home. If your home has a positive grade, the water will flow away. Be sure to contact a landscape specialist if you are unsure of your yard’s grade.
By regularly cleaning your gutters, you can avoid any clogs or blockages that could lead to water overflowing and pooling around your foundation. Inspecting your gutters for damage can also help ensure that they’re in proper working order.
Did you know that foundation damage can lead to higher energy bills? By having cracks along your foundation, it can let moisture in which leads to your HVAC systems having to work harder. If you seal up the source of moisture and make necessary repairs, you can have more control over your temperature. When there’s less work for your HVAC systems to do, your energy bill will remain consistent and lower.
If your foundation or basement is experiencing moisture, it’s likely that you have mold growing somewhere in your home. All that mold needs to thrive is a dark and damp environment, from there it will find any organic matter in your home to feed from. This can lead to respiratory issues such as asthma or allergies, especially if the strain of mold is black mold. By repairing your foundation, you can prevent mold from growing and spreading throughout your home.
If your downspouts are placed too close to your home, chances are water will be able to seep down to your foundation and cause damage. By extending your downspouts at least 8 ft. away from the perimeter of your home, you can decrease the likelihood of this happening.
Whether it’s a hairline crack in your wall or a sticking window in the summer, foundation problems should never be ignored, no matter how small. These issues can manifest themselves into full-scale structural damage and can result in thousands of dollars in repairs. Having a damaged foundation can also result in higher energy bills and aid in a harmful living environment.

Improves Real Estate Value
Ensuring your home is structurally sound and safe before you decide to list it is not only an important thing to do, but also you could increase its resale value. While there are many people in the market looking for a fixer-upper, most are expecting their new home to be free of problems. When your foundation is damaged it can reduce your home’s value by up to 30 percent. It’s important to ensure your foundation is structurally sound before listing it on the market.
Protects Against Mold Growth
To some, mold may seem like a common occurrence in a home, and one that isn’t a pressing issue. Mold and mildew growth can also pale in comparison when dealing with other issues such as flooding, structural damage, or other home repairs. Nonetheless, mold formation in your house is a serious issue that can impact your home and your health in many unexpected ways. Thankfully, mold is relatively easy to deal with on its own by a mold removal professional. Of course, it would be far preferable to prevent mold from forming in the first place by ensuring your foundation is repaired and free from cracks or water damage.
