Foundation settlement is a very common problem for many homes and businesses in the Southen Texas area. Settlement can be due to a number of reasons and can happen to anyone. Whether your home is 50 years old or 5 years old, settlement is something that everyone should keep an eye out for. Being able to understand what settlement is, how settlement occurs, and the signs of settlement is very important so that you can catch it in time before it worsens.
Settlement is a term to describe when a building begins to sink into the ground due to the soil around the foundation shrinking. The soil shrinking could be caused for a number of reasons including drought, poor pre-construction, or maturing of trees and vegetation. Ultimately, it is caused when there is lack of moisture in the soil. While there are things you can look out for when it comes to settlement, it is something that is almost always unavoidable. When settlement does occur, many issues can come about such as cracks in your foundation, leaning or bowing walls, or misaligned doors or windows.
