Causes of Foundation Settlement

  • Evaporation–Hot and dry conditions may cause soil to pull away from the foundation. Settlement due to this foundation moisture imbalance could cause cracks to appear throughout the surface.

  • Transpiration–Tree roots could dehydrate the soil beneath the home causing soil shrinkage.

  • Plumbing Leaks–Water from leaky plumbing is often a major contributor to foundation problems, including heaving.

  • Drainage–Improper drainage will lead to excess moisture build-up, which could erode or consolidate soils. Excessive moisture may cause heaving or expansive soils.

  • Site Preparation–Cut and fill places where soil is removed from part of the building site and stacked onto another.
