Tulsa Plumbing Companies Prepare Homeowners for Foundation Issues Pre-Summer

Local Tulsa, Oklahoma plumbing services companies warning area homeowners about pre-summer heat wave and drought problems that can lead to foundation issues for Oklahoma homes and businesses.

With spring and summer months on the horizon, Tulsa, OK plumbing services companies, such as Bixby-based Big C’s, have begun warning homeowners about heat wave and drought problems that can lead to foundation issues for Oklahoma homes. Big C’s Plumbing, a Tulsa area plumbing repair business that has been serving the surrounding neighborhoods with commercial plumbing and residential plumbing solutions for more than 25 years, specializes in foundation piering, enabling the company to exude something of an expertise in the matter.

“We have been doing foundation work nearly since our inception, and while the work has never slowed down, triple-digit heat in Oklahoma keeps us extra-busy,” says Chris Ogan, expert plumber and owner of Big C's Plumbing. “If we go long periods of 100-degree days, it’s important for homeowners to check around their foundations to make sure it’s not excessively dry. What’s more, there are a few other things we routinely advise customers to look out for around the house, including cracks inside or outside of the home, doors and windows sticking or not shutting properly, floors buckling or trim work pulling away from the wall.”

Ogan and other Oklahoma-based plumbers agree that the major culprit behind most of these problems in the state is the clay soil, making it imperative to keep a “happy medium” with regard to the ground - not super-wet because of erosion, but not super-dry because of shrinking. When it’s dry, says Ogan, clay forms cracks, which allows the foundation to settle.

“We always stress that homeowners, as well as those in need of commercial plumbing services, should make foundation repair a priority, and that working with reputable contractors - who put their interests first - are the most important things they can do to secure their most valued investment,” adds Ogan. “From Big C’s perspective, we’ve shared dozens upon dozens of cautionary tales about the risks of working with contractors that haven’t been fully vetted, reminding everyone that foundation damage is a community issue; indeed, the streets, sidewalks and playgrounds we all share face equal exposure to serious drought-related damage.”

According to Ogan and his team of commercial plumbing and residential plumbing engineers, it comes down to homes in Tulsa sitting on many different layers of soil, with each layer exhibiting a varying amount of structural integrity, given that they are made of different soil types. As the earth has developed, he has explained to customers and attendees of foundation conferences alike, some of these were carried here by way of water, while others were carried by wind and, ultimately, by builders.

“The ultimate goal when it comes to piering is to support the home from the bedrock layer, rather than the house move about from unstable soil types that it currently sits on,” Ogan concludes.

Big C's Plumbing serves the Oklahoma neighborhoods of Broken Arrow, Bixby and Tulsa with all manner of commercial plumbing and residential plumbing solutions including general plumbing repair, general plumbing services, drain cleaning, rooter services, water heater repair, foundation piering and repair of slab leaks.
