Causes Of Foundation Movement
Your home’s foundation is designed to transfer the weight of the structure and contents to the underlying soil or rock. In Florida most foundations constructed today are slab-on-grade; however, pier and beam foundations are still used in certain situations and many older homes have pier and beam foundation systems.
Swelling and shrinking of expansive soils underlying your home’s foundation are the primary causes of foundation movement throughout the south. Expansive clay soils swell when soil moisture levels increase and shrink when moisture levels decrease resulting in lifting or settlement of your home’s foundation.
The second most frequent cause of foundation movement is a consolidation of improperly compacted soil or rock fill, which can cause portions of the foundation to settle.
Because your home’s foundation transfers the weight of the structure and contents to the underlying soil, your foundation moves when the soils move. If the foundation moves uniformly and does not deflect or become unlevel the foundation is performing as designed. If some parts of the foundation move more than others then the foundation is undergoing differential movement. It is this differential movement that damages your foundation and the cosmetic finishes throughout your home.
Limiting Differential Movement
Because soil moisture variations cause swelling and shrinking of the soils supporting your foundation, anything you can do to minimize those moisture variations will also minimize foundation movement. The three most common things you can do to reduce foundation movement are:
- Water your lawn and the areas adjacent to your foundation uniformly during dry periods.
- Make sure that surface water cannot pond against the perimeter of the foundation. The soil at the foundation perimeter should be higher than the surrounding soils, so surface water will drain away from the foundation.
- Large trees or extensive plantings of shrubs close to the foundation can result in the drying of the soils under the perimeter of the foundation. The shallow roots of these trees and shrubs extend under the foundation and decrease soil moisture levels. Normally trees should be planted at a distance from the foundation equal to their mature height. If existing trees or shrubs are affecting the stability of your foundation, a barrier trench can often be installed between the trees and the foundation.
