What Contributes to Foundation Settlement?
There are many things that can contribute to a foundation settling over time, such as:
- Poor drainage
- Big weather changes – droughts and heavy precipitation
- Poorly prepared/compacted soil
- Invasive tree roots
- Soil consolidation
- Leaking water lines or pipes
