Signs of Commercial Foundation Damage

Besides your home, your business and the building it's in are two of the biggest investments you’ve ever made. It’s easy to think that a commercial space is longer lasting and impervious to the kinds of damage that happen to residential structures, but the truth is the building in which you do business is built on and supported by a concrete foundation, just like your home. When your commercial space begins to show signs of foundation distress, the ability for you to do business also becomes compromised the longer those issues are left unresolved. And like a universal truth, the signs that indicate foundation problems in a home are the same for a commercial building.

The foundation of any structure is surrounded by soil and, more often than not, the soil is expansive—rich in clay that absorbs water and expands during wet seasons and shrinks as it dries out during arid months. That wet-dry succession causes the soil to shift, which causes the foundation of your building to settle. When that happens, the concrete of your foundation cracks, which compromises the stability of your building. If left unattended for too long, the damage will eventually become more extensive and may force you to shut down operations for costly, intrusive repairs that will need much more than commercial foundation repair products.
