Although the temperatures during the daytime hover between the upper 40's and low 50's, we can all agree that it feels chilly compared to the 60-degree-plus temperatures that most of the southeast enjoyed throughout January and February. Nighttime is much colder too, often at the 32-degree freezing mark.
As the ambient temperature changes, remember that ground temperature changes too. Watch your home for signs of new cracks in walls, brick or floors or for drafty areas around door and window frames. As the ground temperature gets colder, soils around your home's foundation may contract and change the pressure exerted on your home's structure.
Cracked brick, cracks in walls and cracks in concrete floors are just a few of the signs that your home may need foundation repair. If you see these symptoms around your home, contact AFS today for a free visual inspection. We support everything you love.... no matter how cold the winter gets!
