Foundation Shifting & Moving

On occasion, the ground and soil beneath your home or your business can become unstable, and when this happens your foundation can actually move or shift. This can wreak havoc on the rest of the structure above it. If you notice any problems, your foundation may be moving and shifting and you need help immediately.

Causes of Foundation Shifting & Moving

What causes the foundation to shift and move? The soil around your foundation is in constant movement. Your home or business is built on soil and earth that is sometimes poorly compacted or wasn’t prepared correctly prior to the structure being built. The weather where you live can also affect the soil around your foundation in a very big way. When it is very dry, the soil around your foundation will shrink away, taking support and stability with it. If too much water surrounds your foundation, the soil will become oversaturated, and a problem called hydrostatic pressure will occur. This pressure is exerted directly on foundation walls, basement walls, and crawl space walls.

Unstable soils are constantly putting your foundation at risk. If your home was built over poorly compacted soil, you will need extra strength and stability added to your foundation. Our network of foundation repair experts can help you with solutions for your foundation that will give you that added stability you need.
