It certainly didn’t take long to start feeling the effects of another hurricane season! Tropical Storm Andrea continuously dumped rain on the Panhandle for more than 24 hours.
Excessive rainfall, especially from large and slowly moving systems, can cause changes to the soil under your foundation. Think of this soil as a sponge – it absorbs the water and expands which causes movement that can transfer to structures built on this soil.
Signs that seasonal rainfall may be causing damage to your home include cracks on the interior and exterior walls; washed out soils under your sidewalk and driveway; and uneven floors.
