You know that foundation repair problems are different throughout Washington D.C. and its metro areas. "Out of town contractors don't know about local conditions and may recommend solutions that don't fix the problem for good."The areas closer to water experience more foundation problems caused by flooding, while sections of D.C. that are further inland could be damaged from hydrostatic pressure or settlement.
Out of town contractors don't know about local conditions and may recommend solutions that don't fix the problem for good. They may recommend a foundation repair solution that's perfect for sandy soil, but your home's built on clay soil. Or they may recommend square shaft piers when round helical piers are a better solution for your home's foundation problem.

What Causes Washington D.C. Foundation
Washington D.C. and is metro area experiences dramatic weather changes. From extreme dry heat to heavy rains, and snow. These weather conditions can create a major problem for your home's foundation.
It's not uncommon for D.C. to experience a drought or brutally hot summer. The hot weather removes the moisture from the soil. When the soil dries it shrinks, and moves away from your foundation. The space surrounding your foundation allows for movement and settlement. When this happens you'll start to see drywall cracks, cracked bricks, stuck windows and doors and concrete cracks in your garage or porch.
Rain & Snow
The ground surrounding your foundation soaks up any extra moisture. And if you don't have a drainage system in place, or the footing drains are clogged, then the water will collect next to your foundation since it has nowhere else to go. The pressure or weight of the water against your foundation – a.k.a. hydrostatic pressure – will create foundation problems like bowed walls, horizontal foundation cracks and brick cracks.
The sudden change of water surrounding your foundation can spell trouble. Just like rain and snow, the flooding can result in settlement, collapsed walls and other serious structural problems.
