Dry wind and intense heat can cause soil to shrink beneath your foundation. This may cause cracks to appear throughout the structure.
Tree roots may desiccate the soil beneath a home, causing the soil to compress and the home to settle.
3. PLUMBING LEAKS
Water from plumbing leaks can find its way under your home and cause the soil to deteriorate, ultimately compromising your foundation.
Improper drainage is one of the leading causes of foundation failure. Excess moisture will erode soil and cause settlement.
5. INFERIOR FOUNDATION CONSTRUCTION
Insufficient steel and poor concrete can contribute to movement in the slab.
6. INFERIOR GROUND PREPARATION
Soft soils and improperly compacted soil are the leading causes of foundation failure. Cut-and-fill situations should be prepared properly before soil can support a structure.
7. POOR SOIL CONDITIONS
Expanding and contracting soil can put added stress on your foundation and contribute to its failure.
