How Come These Issues Happen?
Well, some of it is simply science.
The earth your home rests on changes and shifts a tiny bit over time.
It may expand or contract determined by its exposure to water and temperature.
This slow, but consistent, enlargement and shrinking of the dirt can put a significant amount of pressure on even a new home.
So you might not be able to command the elements or the soil properties around the north side of Tempe, there are a couple variables you can manage.
First, your yard needs to be graded to move rain water away from your house.
Next, you need a good rain gutter system to prevent the rain that hits your home from gathering around it.
The particular physical makeup of soil your house was built on is also a major reason too.
A few kinds of soil will swell up more than others will when they get wet. It’s best if your soil doesn’t swell much.
One other reason for problems is having a large tree too near your house.
This can lead to problems as the roots grow under the house and place pressure on sewer and water pipes as well as your slab.
Different kinds of natural forces might lead to minor cracks in your structure bringing in air, moisture and little insects, and slight cracks might get bigger as time goes on.
