A village in DuPage County, Illinois, Downers Grove is known for being one of the more pleasant places to live in the northern area of the state. It was ranked number 8 in Forbes list of America’s Friendliest Towns, fifth in CNN’s Best Places for a Healthy Retirement list, and named by the American Community Survey as having one of the nation’s most educated citizenry.
Downer’s Grove is also located in a humid continental climate zone. What this means is that winters can be harsh, while thunderstorms can be common during summer and spring. Precipitation levels are at nearly 38 inches a year, which means many homes in the area experience flooded basements, or at the very least, very damp ones.
This water issue can cause many problems in homes, most pressing is the damage it does to the foundation. A weakened foundation is never good news, and if left unattended, can cause your home to experience problems with its structural integrity.
If you see cracks in your foundation, or if walls start to bow and bend while windows and doors get harder to open or close, you might have some foundation damage. But, instead of having to tear everything down and replace the existing foundation with a new one, you can cut the cost of foundation repair by calling the experts.
