Causes of Foundation Problems
There are a variety of reasons why a foundation may fail from underneath your home.
This is when hot and dry weather causes the soil from pull away from the foundation. Once this occurs, your home’s foundation may start to sink and settle causing it to crack.
Tree and large plant roots suck up moisture from the soil. This causes the soil to become dry and pull away from your home causing settlement and foundation cracks.
Not having downspouts, lawn grading, and other improper drainage problems may lead to excess build up of moisture. Too much moisture around your home’s foundation may cause erosion, upheaval, or settlement problems.
Poor Building Site Preparation
Builders must go through specific steps to ensure proper stabilization of your home. Improper cut and fill situations (removing soil from part of the lock and stacking on another) can lead to poor drainage, erosion, and foundation problems.
