What Causes Foundation Movement?
Trees planted too close to the home and their root system is pulling a large amount of water from the soils will dry up and shrink the soil. Some trees or their root system, if they come in direct contact with the homes foundation could lift it somewhat.
Not having positive drainage in your yard where water is ponding next to the foundation is also a big cause in foundation distress. When our area changes from the dry season to the rainy season causes problems if you are not taking charge of these issues. Broken plumbing pipes under the foundation can also affect the home if not taken care of soon.
