Shrink Swell Soil Problems?
Shrink swell soil is the movement caused by the amount of water in the soil. A lot of rain or a very dry period can change how your soil acts around your foundation.
Soil shrinkage occurs when the water is removed from the ground. This can be caused by a drought, heat wave, or just an extended dry period. As the moisture’s removed from the ground, it begins to shrink, pulling away from your foundation. This leaves room for movement and settlement, which can cause cracks in your home’s brick, concrete or block foundation.
Soil sell occurs when your area experiences a lot of rain, and the soil swells and expands. The soil surrounding your home will begin pushing against your foundation, creating bowed walls, basement wall cracks and waterproofing problems.
