Foundation problems are normally caused by problems with expansive soil beneath your foundation. When the soil absorbs water, it expands, pushing against the foundation and causing it to heave. When the soil dries out, it shrinks, forming voids and causes the foundation to settle. These issues are common causes of foundation failure in the Seward, Nebraska area. Problems with your foundation may also arise when vegetation grows too close to the concrete or when the ground beneath the concrete was not compacted well enough when it was laid.
