Reasons to Water your Home’s Foundation
Common Question About Foundation Problems
Taking care of your home’s foundation is super important. And one of the best ways to do this is to water the foundation regularly, particularly when the weather is hot and dry. The main reason why you have to keep the soil around your home damp is that the dirt can dry out and shrink. When this occurs, the slab can settle or tip, causing walls to crack, doors to stick, and floors to become uneven. Although many areas of Texas have watering restrictions, you are generally allowed to water your slab if you follow specific local guidelines. As you are watering the base of your home, keep in mind that it always best to use a soaker hose and that the soil should not be excessively damp, since this can also cause big problems.
