SOIL COMPACTION & SETTLING

When a soil’s load-bearing capacity isexceeded, the soil compacts and settles.
As the soil expands and contracts beneath your concrete slab, the slab will sink and heave. This can also cause cracking in one or more parts of the slab.

SOIL WASHOUT

As water moves through the ground under your concrete slab, it can begin to wash away the supporting soils holding up your concrete. As this soil washout continues, it creates voids and empty space under the slab. Over time, those voids grow and your concrete begins to sink or cave in.
