Why it is so important to appreciate the house for cracks in the walls and damage to the foundation

The vacation period (summer or winter) is the ideal time to solve many overdue maintenance projects of the house and the territory adjacent.Therefore, Граундтек resembles homeowners (and tenants) about the need to regularly check the condition of the building or building the presence of cracks in the walls that may mean damage to the foundation.Moreover, the pre-holiday time has it for this kind of activity.

Extreme weather conditions, such as drought, livne or frost, can affect the grounds of the grounds on which the house is worth.Due to the change in the level of moisture and temperature, the Earth can compress and expand.This often leads to cracks on the walls and uneven floors (or foundations), which is signs that the house is subjected to uneven drawdown and a turn of damage.

Another often overlooked factor is the damage that the roots of trees can cause the foundation at home. Trees and shrubs need a lot of water to survive. But the mature deciduous tree requires up to 50,000 liters of water per year. Especially in a dry period, when the level of humidity in the soil decreases sharply, the trees will extensively dissolve the root systems in search of water. In suburban areas or in areas of private buildings, many large, elderly trees are often found next to the house. In other words, trees are close enough to damage the foundation. Trees may have roots penetrating into the base, which usually violate the stability of the house.

While the movement of the house designs is a natural process, homeowners should search and fix cracks in the walls, as it is often a sign of damage to the foundation.If cracks do not close over time or continue to open out the width of 1-3 mm, then over time, a more serious problem will arise, and you should immediately apply for advice to experts.

Граундтек can provide a quick and efficient solution to raise, align and re-maintain almost any design or building.Whether it is caused by the movement of soils in changing weather conditions or the roots of trees.However, if you do not solve the problem on time, the risk of a more significant and expensive damage to the house increases sharply.

Non-invasive decision Граундтек includes an engineering approach and injecting technology with additional technologies for sealing or enhancing cracks in the house.Граундтек is a unique solution "two in one", which provides both improved base and re-alignment with construction strengthening.Technologies increase the bearing ability of the base, fill emptiness and minimize ground deformations (if necessary), and all of this at economical costs.

Specialists Граундтек design and produce work directly under construction, not assisted and without weakening them.The mixture of resin and hardener is then introduced through the tubes of a small diameter into the ground under the foundations (or the floors), which strengthens the soil and levels the buildings quickly and with minimal anxies without disturbing the rhythm of life and not bringing mess.

If you suspect that your home has damage to the foundation, Граундтек specialists are available within 365 days a year to ensure a professional inspection of the object and evaluate its seriousness.For more information, waiting for your applications or calls.We will be glad to help you.

Undoubtedly, currant bush is unlikely to have an impact on the foundation, but serious plantations in the form of trees are completely capable.For example, in England, this type of influence included in geotechnical textbooks, and there is a reference book about which trees at what distance from the building can be safely planted on the site.

In other words, you need to eliminate all the stands around the perimeter of the house, in order to sleep well!?Either use piles as a foundation.

If you want a long-term and quietly to exploit the building, then it is worth studying the peculiarities of the root system of plant species surrounded by the building.Each has its own "safe" zone.The pile foundation may not be saved if the root system will actively grow up, and after all, it stretches where there is water.Therefore, it is so important to pay careful attention to the drainage and drainage of your home.

The root system of any plant bonds in general the soil, but makes it not the reliable basis for the buildings.Moisture fluctuations makes soil weak in time.

Undoubtedly.Root system to strive where there is moisture.And therefore, it is the first target for the root system of any plant present in the soil.However, if for bushes with a surface root system is a problem, then the trees take water precisely from the deep layers.

Yes, this is a natural process, the question is always in scale.If the supporting structures are not designed for the current level of oscillation at the base, then there is a non-fading process of destruction
