The Cause of Foundation Problems

Non-Compacted Fill Dirt - part of the structure sinks into the soft wall.

Plumbing Leaks - can cause the foundation to fail and crack the walls.

Water Run-Off - from the roof causes the soil to become oversaturated in some areas.

Water Ponding - Will also affect your home. Parts of the foundation may lift up then sink after the soil dries out.
