Poor Construction can Lead to Cracked Foundation
Your home and the foundation on which it sits are inextricably intertwined. The construction of your home can severely impact the solidity of your home’s foundation. If a home is constructed quickly, chances are the soil beneath that home may not have been properly tested and assessed. Soil that expands and contracts significantly with heat or cold can damage a foundation in very little time. Constant motion causes the foundation to feel stresses that lead to cracks and uneven settling. Soil that is not properly tamped down, or compacted, will cause your home to continue settling for years, damaging the foundation in the process. If important reinforcing structures are left out of the foundation’s construction, this can also cause cracks and other foundation problems down the road.
