Anybody who lives in Utah, and it’s inhabited areas such as Spanish Fork, can tell you that, despite being considered a desert, there is hardly a lack of annual rainy or snowy weather patterns. The quarterly seasons are are very accurately depicted in the state in comparison and contrast with those closer to the equator or the poles, and as such, rain is more of a prevalent phenomenon in the Spring, and similarly, snow in the Winter, than they would be during the Summer months that stand in the middle of the year, which are once again consistent with most depictions of these respective times of the year.
Without a doubt, these months are typically among the most costly for homeowners and businesses alike due to the expensive repairs needed to mend the problems these weather shifts can bring to the foundation of buildings and other structures owned by these groups. The rain and snow that will eventually melt can cause damage to these facilities by draining into the soil and causing it to move around, and the building will eventually follow suit. These weather types can also do more direct damage, weathering down the material used to form these foundations after slipping through the ground, leading to:
- Bowing walls
- Stained surfaces
These are just some of the potential consequences of precipitation. Water damage is undoubtedly a huge problem, but it can be challenged or avoided entirely with proper care and maintenance, which is where businesses like Rhino Foundation Systems come in. As a foundation repair company, the task at hand is usually to fix a previously damaged foundation and bring it to a state where it is as good as it once was, or as relatively close to that quality as possible. Additionally, or perhaps alternatively, this type of work often involves making quality of life improvements to foundations on top of repairs to safeguard structures from damages that may have not been considered or thought of during the facility’s initial construction. An commonly performed example of this is basement waterproofing. While this may not be considered or thought to be as pressing of an issue in Spanish Fork, Utah, as it is/was on homes in St. George, given its smaller amounts of precipitation, this problem is still very real for many of the older homes built decades ago in this part of the Provo-Orem area, much like it is also a standing problem in Salt Lake City under the same circumstances.
Working through most of the state, Rhino Foundation Systems functions and carries out projects and support anywhere down to St. George, and all the way up to Ogden. This also means many areas in between, including Spanish Fork! We have half a century of experience in this industry, and because of this longer history and these first hand accounts, we are well acquainted with what candidates exist in the form of hazards that face homes and other types of structures in the state of Utah. There may not always be a ‘one fixes all’ type of solution, but the team is aware of that and are always ready to tackle the challenge and repair these foundations and structures to the best condition achievable. It is our job and privilege to help get rid of the problems that plague homeowners throughout Spanish Fork, and wherever our work can reach as well!
