Utah is widely considered to be a desert state, and when the term, “desert” comes to mind, most people would not think of rain or snow. We all know that deserts are dry and lack humidity by definition, but, if you’ve lived in Utah, then you know that the state is anything but new to cold winters and the precipitation that follows.
Now, snow and rain aren’t problematic all year long. Utah experiences varying climates throughout each year, with hot and dry summers, and then patterns shift a complete one-eighty to almost eight months of frequent snow days and rainstorms. By understanding these patterns, it becomes fairly easy to understand when foundation repair companies really experience a surge in business; during the months when precipitation levels are at their highest.
Business in the more arid, desert-like areas in the southern region of the state usually increases alongside the fade to Autumn. The lack of business in these areas during the months in the middle of the year is mainly due to what is almost a universal absence of rain (let alone the presence of snow) in these areas. Of course, Salt Lake City, Provo, Heber, etc. are all no stranger to at least a small amount of rain during the Summer given their presence in the Northern half of Utah, but with St. George almost on the southern border in an extremely dry expanse of the state, it’s no surprise that there is minimal precipitation, even into the later and earliest parts of the year. Even still, there is of course an increase in precipitation during the Fall, Winter, and Spring in St. George, and the prominence of foundation repair increases until that rain/snowfall dissipates near the end of the Spring season.
The team at Rhino Foundation Systems works all throughout Utah, from Ogden to Salt Lake City, and– you guessed it– St. George. With over 50 years of experience and the go-to resource for foundation waterproofing and stabilization. We know full well of the variety of problems that may need resolving via foundation repair, and there will never be a single universal solution to the problems, but our job is to pinpoint the best strategy to combat the issue and get a team together to execute the technique, and ultimately rid a client of any foundation problems they may be dealing with.
