To some extent, all house foundations settle into the soil, even brand new homes. As long as the settling is uniform, there is no need to worry. The bigger problem is differential settling. Differential settling is when the house is settling, but not evenly. In other words, different parts of the house are settling at different rates. This stresses the foundation and will result in uneven floors and cracks in the walls, floors, ceilings, and windows out of plumb.
Dry and hot conditions can cause the soil under your home to shrink, while wet conditions can cause it to expand. Either way, the movement of the soil under your home is what eventually causes a foundation to crack or settle.
There are various ways to lift, level or stabilize a house, including underpinning, wall bracing, telepost adjustments, or screw piles to repair bowing walls and foundation cracks. The method we use will depend on the type of foundation and the type of problem the structure is experiencing.
