As a Hickory homeowner, you are all too familiar with water in your basement or crawl space after a heavy rainstorm. You might not know, however, that not only does the rain fall contribute to your headache, but the Hickory soil conditions play a factor as well. Hickory and the surrounding areas have mainly clay soil. Clay soil is the worst type of soil to surround a foundation because when it gets wet, it both expands and gets very heavy. This puts hydrostatic pressure against your foundation walls, causing significant damage. Problem signs are often not noticed until it’s too late. Keep an eye out for cracked or bowing walls, as well as damp concrete, especially near where the floor and the wall meet. These could all be signs that hydrostatic pressure is affecting your walls. 

Hickory’s clay soil is also very destructive to your concrete slabs around your home. From sidewalks to driveways, or pool decks to patios, no slab is safe where clay soil is present. As the soil expands and contracts, slabs crack and settle, causing the cement to look unsightly and is often a tripping hazard. 

Contractors can offer many solutions to repair your home, however, finding the right contractor for your specific home is important. Tar Heel Basement Systems understands the unique soil in the Hickory area and can improve your home’s health and structural integrity with a variety of foundation, basement, crawl space or concrete repair solutions.
