Call Today for Foundation Repair in Jacksonville FL

The foundation of a home is little more than a block of concrete that the home sits on. The weight of the home bears down on that block causing stress and eventually damage. While a foundation can support the weight and stress of a home, it may not be able to stand up to the pressure of shifting soil and earth in the immediate area. Weight is distributed evenly over the top of the foundation, where it is designed to support the weight. If the earth in the area shifts the weight is no longer where it can be supported but rather distributed along the sides. This uneven stress causes cracks and causes damage to parts of the home not intended to support the weight.
