Hot dry wind and intense heat will often cause the soil to shrink beneath the foundation.
Tree roots may desiccate the soil beneath a home causing the soil to shrink and the home to settle.
3. Plumbing Leaks
Water from plumbing leaks is often a cause of foundation problems.
Improper drainage is one of the leading causes of foundation failure. Excess moisture will erode or consolidate soils and cause settlement.
5. Inferior Foundation Construction
Insufficient steel and inferior concrete will contribute to movement in the slab.
6. Inferior Ground Preparation
Soft, low density soils and/or improperly compacted soil beneath a home is the leading cause of foundation failure.
7. Poor Soil Conditions
Poor soil and its expansion and/or contraction contribute to foundation failure.
