Extreme heat and extended droughts can cause the foundation of your home to shift. Droughts can cause trees to hoard water, changing the moisture content of the soil and causing foundation shifting.
This video can help you understand how heat can put your home at risk. It is natural for homes to settle over time, but the home shown in this video fell more than a foot due to shifting foundation. Signs your home may be shifting include doors becoming tight in their frames and cracks in the walls.
