Does all this rain have you feeling down?


Here in Tallahassee, we are experiencing near-record rainfall for the month of July (more than 7 inches in the first 11 days) and we are already more than 4 inches above last year’s rainfall year-to-date.

All this rain needs some place to go, and if the drainage around your home is not adequate, then it could mean serious problems for your foundation.

Consider this:

WATER follows the path of least resistance. If sidewalks slope toward your home, that’s where the water will head. If rainfall is allowed to collect adjacent to a home’s foundation, the foundation may be subjected to distress caused by swelling soils due to increased soil moisture content.

WATER will enter your home through cracks in your wall. As concrete walls expand and shrink during wet/dry cycles, the bonds of the materials will start to fail and the newly formed crack will allow water in.

WATER can be hazardous to your health. Perpetually wet ground surfaces can become a breeding ground for disease carrying insect infestations like mosquitoes.

WATER damage is a serious problem. Crawl space or basement flooding, mold and mildew growth, foundation cracks, and even full foundation collapse are all a result of water problems. The damage to your home and wallet could be costly.

ALPHA Foundation can help! We specialize in customized waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.

These problems don’t go away and won’t get better by themselves.

So, if you live in one of these rain-laden areas, including Tallahassee, Wakulla, Apalachicola, Port St. Joe, Blountstown, Panama City or Niceville, and are experiencing any of these problems, then call Alpha Foundations as soon as possible to schedule your free, no-obligation estimate: 800-714-3020.
