Heavy Snowfall in Denver May Lead to Foundation Cracking - Image 1Aurora, CO – The Denver area was hit with a massive snowstorm this past weekend. The brunt of the storm began on Thursday night and fell through Saturday.

Over a foot of snow fell in the metro Denver area, which broke an 103-year-old record of the most snowfall, as well as two other Denver snowfall records.

Winters like this are known to cause foundation problems further down the road due to the foundation compacting and expanding with the changing temperature. This can cause foundation cracking, as well as foundation heaving. Foundation heaving occurs when your foundation or slab floor is moving upwards. This could lead to cracks in the walls and floors of your home.
