What Causes Foundations to Sink?
Movement and settlement of your home’s foundation can be caused by a number of factors: building on expansive
clay, poorly compacted fill soil, or improper maintenance around the foundation of the house. Water is the culprit in
these expansive soil problems and foundation movement. Certain soil types swell or shrink with variations in
moisture, and while the extent of this movement varies from soil to soil, the result is usually the same.
Soil high in clay content generally is more sensitive to moisture, while soil that is lower in clay content is less
affected. When unstable soils are the base for a foundation, expansion, contraction and movement is transmitted
to the foundation. This movement is uneven, so the foundation is pushed up (upheaval) or sinks, or both. The
problem shows up in all types of foundations, whether slab or "pier and beam" type foundations.
In your home, slab settlement problems can result in potential damage to the structure, potential accidents, and
loss of real estate value. Poor drainage, tripping hazards, rough floors, unsightly cracks, and equipment
malfunctions may also result from concrete slab settlement. Aqueous Foundation Supportworks utilizes state-of-
the-art methods and technology to level and correct floor shifting including, hydraulic jacking, slab lifting and
Bulging floors, cracked walls, and doors that won't close are all signs of foundation distress. Sixty percent of all homes
built on expansive soils suffer from foundation distress. The problems occur when only part of the foundation heaves or
settles, causing cracks and other damage. This differential movement is largely caused by differences in soil moisture.
Loss or gain of soil moisture can cause serious shrinkage or swelling.
If the frame of a house does not begin to distort until after three or more years of satisfactory performance, it is doubtful
that the distortion is caused by full-depth foundation settlement, which is always evidenced by matching cracks. Cracks
occur at each side of a portion of the foundation wall that is undergoing downward movement caused by soil bearing
failure. Settlement cracks are nearly always vertical, and they should not be confused with cracks that occur when a wall
is subjected to lateral movement from soil pressure.
