SIGNS OF WALL DAMAGE
Wall damage can be detected by these common signs.
CAUSES OF WALL DAMAGE
Check out the causes below to see how this happened to your foundation.
Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure exerted by fluid due to the force of gravity. As water saturates the soils around your home’s foundation, that water puts pressure against the walls, impacting the stability of your home’s foundation.
Heavy rain and floods cause the soil surrounding your home to become wet and hold water. This makes the soil very soft and weak, causing the home to sink or shift down into it. Drought can also causes the soil to shrink, creating voids in which your home can settle.
IMPROPER FILL DIRT
During construction, the area around the home must be filled with loose dirt. When this fill soil is not compacted properly, it can compress under the weight of the home, causing settlement. Even the best job of compaction will not compress the soil equally with the undisturbed soil.
The active zone refers to the soil beneath the surface that is most affected by changes in moisture. The density and moisture level of this area shifts as the seasons and climate change. The active zone may be just a few feet below grade or more than 30 feet below grade, depending on the geography beneath your home.
