[LAFAYETTE, 01/26/2018] - A study by Consumer Reports reveals that 15 percent of brand new homes in various areas in Colorado have considerable foundation defects, putting families and their properties at risk. Van Matre Construction, LLC intends to help such families protect their loved ones and homes through foundation repair services.
The company remarks, “We have recently noticed an increased demand for foundation repair services and felt we needed to provide more detailed information on our experience, expertise and cost-effective solutions for addressing foundation problems caused by vertical movement, lateral movement, and wet basements due to inadequate drainage.”
Other Factors that Affect Stability
Van Matre Construction shares that Colorado’s weather is another factor that intensifies the problems brought about by a weak foundation. Fluctuating rainfall, groundwater, and snow melt contribute to soil expansion. The soil around the home absorbs the water, but the soil may contract when the weather dries out.
When that happens, the company explains, “These factors put additional stress on your foundation and can lead to movement. This translates into visible indicators such as cracks in walls, floors, ceilings or chimneys, bowing of walls, doors or windows that do not open or close properly or even visibly uneven or sloped floors.”
But saving a home from being reduced to rubble is an achievable goal with the expertise of Van Matre Construction, LLC.
One Team for All Foundation Issues
The company’s team of technicians takes an analytical and hands-on approach to repairs. Technicians fix three types of problems, namely vertical movement, lateral movement, and drainage issues. The team’s specialists then work on every aspect that needs attention, such as:
For horizontal movement issues, the company attaches steel or carbon-fiber bracings to mitigate further movement, helping owners save more money in the process. For vertical movement, the company attaches helical piers to the foundation and transfers the weight of the home onto rock layers beneath it.
The company is ready to take on any home foundation repair job, adding, “Our experience confirms that foundation problems can affect new and old homes alike and that a decision to permanently resolves these issues is an investment that preserves your home’s value.”
