Many foundation problems in California are the result of a drastic shift in the moisture content of the soil. However, there are a few other things that can cause foundation problem. Listed below are some of the most common foundation problems:
The hot and dry conditions in Los Angeles can lead to foundation settlement and sinking. This occurs when the foundation is not properly supported from underneath, and begins to sink as a result. Foundation shifting happens when the foundation experiences pressure that causes it to shift and move, leading to bowing and leaning basement walls. Foundation cracking is another problem that may occur when the foundation starts to develop cracks as a result of soil falling away or excess pressure pushing on the foundation.
