Foundation Settling

It is important to note that foundation settling is unavoidable. There is always some amount of settling that may occur in a home and they are even designed to give a little over time. However, foundation settling can become a huge problem for homes. If your home settles beyond the regular amount, it can begin to form cracks.

As water moves through your soil it can cause the soil to shift. As the soil shifts more, it can create more and more pressure on your walls. The pressure causes walls to bow or lean and can even crack when they have a lot of soil pushes on the walls. Luckily, there are ways to help you avoid any issues.
