What Causes Foundation Issues in Charlottetown, PE?
Problems with your foundation often emerge from a combination of factors, 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.
Prince Edward Island is known for severe winters, averaging roughly 290 centimeters of snow every year. As snow accumulates from November through April, the snowpack continues to grow, and when the spring thaw comes, massive quantities of water are released into the soils surrounding your home. During this time, it is of the utmost importance that you continually check the floors, walls and joints in your basement. Seepage and water infiltration will be at their peak potential during the weeks of the thaw, and are most likely to present themselves at this time.
