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.
