Make sure your house is strong and stable for years to come

Foundations are literally what homes rest on, making them sound and stable, so it’s very important for you to take care of yours, renovating or replacing it whenever necessary. Unfortunately, there are many causes for a foundation to collapse or crack: unstable ground, ground motion and the age of the building it supports.

Here are a few signs that indicate your foundation deserves to be checked: cracks in your exterior masonry, unusual cracks in your interior walls, uneven floors, hard-to-close doors or windows, and water seeping into your basement.

And if you live in Quebec, you also have to make your foundation water-resistant to clay soil, which can be found in the most developed parts of this province. You must take the precautionary measure of installing a French drain to prevent water from accumulating around your foundation. Otherwise, you significantly increase the risk of foundation degradation and soil erosion problems.

Although there are many methods for repairing or replacing your foundation, there’s only one rule of thumb to follow: choosing a contractor who is up to the task of this important project.
