What Causes Foundation Damage to Oregon Homes and Businesses?

Just as there are multiple manifestations of foundation damage, there are also numerous causes. Foundation damage in Oregon is frequently caused by:

  • Hydrostatic Pressure Changes: Hydrostatic pressure increases when there are large amounts of water in the ground surrounding your foundation. As this pressure rises, it pushes on your foundation which can cause shifting and cracking.
  • Soil Shrinkage: Particularly in eastern Oregon, dry and drought-like conditions can cause soil shrinkage from lack of moisture. This is a problem because when soil shrinks, it falls away and forms voids under your foundation, leading to the sinking or settling of the foundation.
  • Erosion of Soil: Much like soil shrinkage, soil erosion causes empty spaces to form in the ground under your foundation and can lead to shifting, settling, and sinking. However, unlike shrinkage, erosion is caused by an excessive amount of moisture in the ground and can occur especially after periods of intense rain. 

No matter what caused your foundation damage, the professionals at Grip-Tite have solutions designed to accommodate your needs.
