What Causes Commercial Foundation Damage?
Commercial foundations come in a wide array of sizes, shapes, and designs; however the most common large foundation is enormous concrete slabs. However, there is an issue with using large pieces of concrete; it’s prone to cracking and breaking when pressure is applied unevenly due to concrete poor tensile strength. The concrete slab can shift and move when poorly installed or the soil underneath is not compacted sufficiently. Commercial foundations can also shift when soil conditions surrounding them change, usually due to excess water. When the foundation shifts, it puts the concrete slab under excess stress, which causes it to crack and break.
What Are The Signs of Damage to Commercial Foundations?
Commercial foundations are often massive. As a result, they are more prone to cracking, breaking, and shifting. However, the signs of foundation issues may be tricky to notice without the proper knowledge. Shifting or damaged foundations can cause walls to crack and separate; floors may also slope to one side or another. On top of this, ceilings can crack and are now out of shape. Windows and doors can also stiffen up or no longer fit their frame when foundations have moved or broken. You must pay attention to the signs of damage to commercial foundations, as damages will likely worsen if not repaired.
