As the summer months begin, the Arkansas temperatures and humidity begin to rise. We all know it gets hot, and while you should ensure that you and your loved ones are hydrated and prepared for the high heat, we recommend that you do the same for your home’s foundation.

When summer comes around, the Arkansas heat dries the ground out, causing it to contract. The process reverses again with the cooler months of fall.
All of this causes immense pressure on your foundation and is a leading cause of damage. Although the concrete is meant to withstand this force and movement, after a few years it is...more
