What causes foundation problems?

Drainage 

Improper drainage is one of the leading causes of foundation failure. Excess moisture will erode or consolidate and cause sediment.

Poor Soil Conditions

 

Poor soil and its expansion and/or contraction contribute to foundation failures.

Inferior Ground

Preparation

 

Soft, low density soil or improperly compacted soil beneath a home is the leading cause of foundation failure.

Inferior Foundation Construction

 

Insufficient steel reinforcement and inferior concrete will also contribute to slab movement.
