Slope Erosion in the High Country
When it comes to foundation repair in Asheville, we have a big challenge: mountains. The High Country is famous for fragile rock slopes and expansive soils. Landslides are becoming more common, too. These natural occurrences can be a factor in failing and weakened foundations for many structures that may require reinforcement. There are many slope failure repair options and stabilization techniques that can be implemented, some of which include:
- TECCO® mesh
- Rock drape
- Shotcrete facing
- Soldier piles and lagging walls
- Sheet piling
- Terracing and benching
- Improved drainage
Importance of Drainage
Many structures in western North Carolina are built on a slope, hillside or non-flat grade. With common flooding issues, cooler temperatures and saturated soil, the ground tends to become unstable. Drainage of excess water around and away from a structure is key to maintaining a foundation’s structural integrity. If you see signs of water seepage or accumulation in your building, it may be time to consider a proper drainage solution and even a foundation inspection. Foundation Repair Services professionals have over 20 years of experience and are experts in the North Carolina Appalachian Mountain region.
