Preventing a Foundation Problem
Using a controlled watering program is one of the most effective methods of maintaining your foundations performance.
Commonly, a ‘soaker hose’ is used to maintain consistent moisture in the soils surrounding your foundation. With the expansive nature of our soils and their vulnerability to extreme conditions such as drought, the soil can shift and significantly affect your foundations performance.
Keeping the soil at a stable and consistent level of moisture will help prevent movement in the soils surrounding your foundation if the soaker hose is used correctly.
