Foundation Failure Increasingly Common in Columbia, SC
While foundation damage can happen for any number of reasons, in Columbia, the primary culprit is erosion. After centuries of agricultural development and deforestation, the region’s landscape has undergone dramatic changes. Root systems that once held topsoil in place have all but vanished.
Worse still, South Carolina’s soil composition is a mix of Bohicket (the state’s official soil) and Ultisols (red clay soils). The former does a very poor job of draining excess rainwater, and the latter is known for rapidly contracting (during wet spells) and expanding (during dry ones). Consequently, landslides, erosion and flash floods have become more common throughout the Columbia metro region, resulting in a growing number of foundation failures for area businesses and homes.
In most cases, foundation damage is only the beginning. Left unchecked, even simple problems can lead to:
- Cracks in upper-level ceilings and floors
- Buckling walls and leaning chimneys
- Sagging roofs and poorly fitting doors or windows
Your best defense against foundation failure is preventive maintenance. Don’t wait to hire a foundation repair contractor. At the first signs of foundation damage, contact our expert team immediately — before the problem gets worse.
