Seasonal shrinking and swelling of expansive soil is a leading cause of movement. During dry months as moisture decreases, soil shrink allowing foundations to settle. During wet months as moisture increases, soil expands and pushes up on foundations. At times, the soil will swell enough to raise foundations higher than their original elevation; this is referred to as heaving.
Poor site drainage is a common cause of foundation movement. Surface and subsurface moisture should be diverted away from the home or building in order to preserve the strength and desired elevation of the foundation system.
Improperly compacted fill will consolidate or pack down under the load of the home or building. Moisture problems will contribute to the consolidation of non-compacted fill. Plumbing leaks are another common cause of foundation movement. These problems are often created during the initial construction of a home or building. However, leaks may not occur for many years. Our experience has been that plumbing leaks, whether in supply lines or waste lines, always cause foundation and floor movement.
Poor construction is also a major cause of foundation movement. This problem often begins during the initial design of a home or building. Some foundation systems simply are not adequate for the areas and soil conditions in which they are used.
The DuraLIFT® system is specifically engineered to secure your home’s foundation to a solid base, such as bedrock, to prevent movement. Benefits of this system include:
