Blooming Gardens, Settling Foundations: How Spring Impacts Your Home

As spring breathes life back into nature, it also signals a season of change for your home. While blooming gardens and warmer weather bring joy, they can also impact your home’s foundation. In this guide, we’ll delve into the ways spring can influence your foundation and how to ensure your home remains stable during this vibrant season.

The Thaw and Settling:

As winter thaws away, the soil around your home experiences changes. The expansion and contraction of soil due to temperature fluctuations can lead to a phenomenon known as settling. We’ll explore how this settling process can affect your foundation and what signs to watch for.

Spring Rains and Foundation Challenges:

April showers may bring May flowers, but they can also pose challenges to your foundation. Excessive rainfall can saturate the soil, leading to issues like erosion and, in extreme cases, foundation shifts. Learn about the preventive measures to safeguard your foundation against the impact of spring rains.

Landscaping Practices:

While we eagerly plant our gardens in spring, certain landscaping practices can unknowingly affect your foundation. Tree roots, for instance, seek moisture and can potentially disrupt the soil around your foundation.
