A lack of sufficient moisture in your soil can quickly damage to your foundation. Taking proactive steps to protect your home’s foundation will prevent damage and the need for repairs down the road.
Intense summer heat and dry conditions cause the soil around your home to shrink. Soil shrinkage causes your foundation to settle, warping door and window frames and causing cracks. Water the area around your foundation at least once a week to keep soil moist and prevent it from pulling away from your home.
