What Causes Virginia Foundation
Virginia is prone to extreme dry heat, excessive humidity and a lot of rain. All of these things can create big problems for your home's foundation.
The hot weather removes the moisture from the soil. As the soil dries it shrinks, and as it shrinks it moves away from your foundation. This new gap gives your foundation room to move and settle. You'll start to see cracked bricks, drywall cracks and you can even have a stuck doors or windows.
Rain & Humidity
The ground surrounding your foundation soaks up the extra moisture. If you don't have a proper drainage system in place, that water will collect next to your foundation. The pressure of the water against your foundation – a.k.a. hydrostatic pressure – will cause horizontal cracks, bowed walls and other structural problems.
Big sections of Virginia are made up of clay soil. Clay soil, also known as expansive soil, is dramatically affected by weather. So when it rains, the clay soil expands more than other types of soil. And when it's hot, the clay soil dries up, creating a big gap between your home and foundation, which makes room for foundation movement and settlement.
