With temperatures dropping and snow finally sticking to the ground, you might think your foundation work has to wait for spring - but you’re wrong! Winter is actually a great time to have your foundation repaired, and here are three reasons why.
Take Advantage of Scheduling
We work all year, but there are definitely busier spikes in the spring and fall when it gets rainy. Scheduling your project in the winter means a shorter wait.
Be Ready for Spring
Once we get through the expected warm-up next week, the temperatures will probably be pretty cold through the next few months. That means the ground will stay frozen and the soil won’t move. The same can’t be said for spring, when temperature swings and rain cause soil to shift and expand. This can cause problems with bowing walls and sinking foundations or make existing problems worse. Take care of it now and don’t spend the spring dreading what’s going to happen next.
Be Ready for Summer
If you’ve been thinking of finishing your basement, but know you need to install an egress window first or take care of that cracked, leaning wall, now’s the time to act. Get the foundation fixed now and your finished basement will be ready long before you need to get the kids out of your hair during summer break.
It’s easy to think that any below ground work has to wait until the ground thaws, but it’s just not true. We have the knowledge and equipment required to work year round, and our team is ready to help you get (and keep) your home safe and warm all winter long. Call today to schedule your free inspection.
