Foundation repair usually has a large amount to do with geographical location, climate, and time of year. Before we take a look at Ogden, let’s look at how each of these factors can affect foundation repairs in a good bit of detail so we can translate that to how these repairs would be implemented by the Rhino Foundation Systems team.
First off, geographical location. Rhino Foundation Systems functions statewide. From southern St. George to Ogden, which we know rests even more north than Salt Lake. Most of the state, especially the northern regions, are home to ranges of mountains that protrude in many areas. The most notable of these ranges are the Wasatch Mountains, a set of mountains that stretch upwards of 150 miles from the Utah-Idaho border, down to central Utah. The Wasatch Mountains are part of the much larger Rocky Mountain range, which takes up a large portion of land in the United States, which should help point out that most of the state is on the mountainous side if any of the other information just listed doesn’t do that already. Regarding foundation repair, mountains can make it difficult to build and repair homes. Even if they aren’t extremely close to the land where a home will be built, mountains can be the reason certain land is not ideally suitable for these homes. The soil around these regions can be particularly riddled with larger rocks that lie hidden and become problematic during construction, or the soil may not be dense enough to keep aspects of the house in place well enough. Most of the time, there are workarounds, hence why we see so many houses that sit on the face of mountains along the Wasatch range. Essentially, if somebody wants a house built in what would seem like an unorthodox location, it can be done for the right price with the right tools.
There are also some areas in Utah which are lush, or dry, and suffer or benefit from other things in their respective regions that can affect foundation repair situations. The desert plains of St. George can provide a good flat surface, but soil is dry and flaky, meaning some maintenance would need to be done to create a good structural foundation, and lush regions like those near bodies of water such as Utah Lake tend to have more frequent water problems with the foundation.
