May Means More Sun, But Don't Forget Your Foundation! San Antonio Spring Maintenance Tips by Stonehouse Foundation Repair


As the days get longer and the sun shines brighter, it's easy to get caught up in the joys of spring. However, amidst the blooming flowers and warmer temperatures, it's crucial not to overlook the importance of foundation maintenance, especially in San Antonio's unique weather conditions. In this guide, Stonehouse Foundation Repair brings you some essential spring maintenance tips to ensure your foundation remains strong and stable throughout the season.

San Antonio Weather:

San Antonio families know the drill: sizzling summers, cozy winters, and everything in between!  While we soak up the sunshine after a cooler season, the truth is, our weather can be a bit of a double-edged sword for our homes' foundations.  Those quick bursts of rain and occasional storms can pack a punch, and the constant swing between hot and cool can put stress on the very base of your home.

Spring Maintenance Tips for Your Foundation:

  1. Family Time: Inspect Your Gutters and Downspouts: Get the whole family involved in checking and clearing your gutters and downspouts. Clogged gutters and downspouts can lead to water pooling around your foundation, causing erosion and structural damage over time. Ensure they are clear of debris and properly channeling water away from your home.
  2. Grading Together: Check Your Landscape Grading: Take a family walk around your home to check the grading of your landscape. Proper grading is essential for preventing water from pooling near the foundation. Ensure that the soil slopes away from your house to encourage water drainage.
  3. Professional Assistance: Schedule a Family-Friendly Inspection: Consider hiring a professional foundation repair expert from Stonehouse Foundation Repair to inspect your home's foundation for any signs of damage or weakness. Early detection can save you time and money in the long run, giving your family peace of mind.
  4. Soil Check: Monitor Soil Moisture Levels: Involve the kids in monitoring soil moisture levels around your home. Excessive moisture in the soil can contribute to foundation issues, such as settlement and cracking. Avoid overwatering your lawn or garden beds and use a moisture meter to keep an eye on soil moisture levels.
  5. Download Our Spring Maintenance Guide: To help your family navigate spring maintenance tasks, we've created a comprehensive guide that covers everything from foundation repair to landscaping tips. Download it from our website to ensure your family is well-prepared for the season ahead.


As the saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers," but they can also bring foundation woes if not properly addressed. By taking proactive steps to maintain your foundation this spring, your family can safeguard your home against costly repairs and ensure it remains a safe and stable haven for years to come. Don't wait until it's too late – start your spring maintenance together as a family today!
