The soils in Regina have a very high clay content and, as such, they are capable of holding lots of water.
The high water content causes the soil to expand and put pressure on your foundation (basement) walls. When the soils have access to too much water, they become saturated and the excess water also pushes against the wall, called hydrostatic pressure. The weight of the soil combined with the hydrostatic pressures is too much for some foundation walls to withstand and causes them to crack and push inward.
There are measures that can be taken to reduce moisture entering the ground around your foundation and reduce the chances of cracked or bowed walls.
Dynamic Foundations can help with that.
If you are already experiencing cracked and/or bowed walls, we can help.
