What Causes Foundation Problems in Halifax, Nova Scotia?
Your home's foundation is left to contend with a variety of factors that can lead to structural decay, including poor soil density and/or drainage capacity, large temperature swings (particularly in spring), annual rain and snowfall, and more. Hydrostatic pressure – the pressure exerted outward by the weight of water on top of itself – builds in the soils surrounding your foundation during times of high soil saturation and poor drainage. The pressure forces water through weak points in your foundation, which form after years of continued cyclical pressures and worsen with time.
In Halifax, one can expect annual rainfall in the realm of 130 centimeters, with snow falling at an annual rate of around 182 centimeters. Proximity to the sea, cold and lengthy winters, large yearly snow buildups and significant rainfall can all adversely impact foundations in the area. In particular, the period of the spring thaw is one in which extra attention to the symptoms listed above should be watched for. Excessive moisture in the soil surrounding your home, resulting from the melt of winter snow, can cause hydrostatic pressures to exert significant stress on your foundation. During this time, check for wet spots on the floor and joints where walls and floors meet.
